Different paths. Can't edit it though.

/var/lib/emby/metadata/artists/K. Forest        (correct)

Third one I managed to remove (what actually happened was the two singles listed under this name moved to the second artist listing) by editing file tags.

 

EDIT: Third one has returned and points to /var/lib/emby/metadata/artists/K. Forest,Baba Femi

Best guess is the comma artist delimiter.  Can you show embedded metadata for one of these tracks.

 

Tested adding a comma delimited artist to a track and got the same results.

Yes happy2play is right here. Emby is just showing what's in your tags. Currently we don't a great way inside emby of changing this. It's something we can look at for a future release. For now I would suggest editing the tags of your audio file. Thanks.

Well that's what I assumed as well however as you can see in the picture below I've removed all featuring artists and information that could possibly be the cause of it with no results.

Did you do a Refresh All on the artist or even the Music Library?  And perform a library scan afterwards?

 

I will have to do some more tests later to find the exact steps I did to remove the example I provided above.  I know removing the issue album, performing library scan and re-adding it solved the problem above (of course once track was fixed)..

It appears solved for now after I replaced them with different copies (and once more edited the tags, this time also removing the (ft artist) in the filename as well as adding a tag for Orig. artist). Thanks for the help!

Yea you just need to run a library scan. Thanks for the feedback.
