    Default Artist and Title displayed for standalone .mp3 files

    It's driving me crazy that when I browse my .mp3 files, none of the standalone files (not in their own album folder) display the artist name. For instance:
    Outasight - Tonight Is the Night is displayed as simply "Tonight is the Night"

    Anyway to get them to display with the Artist as part of the label?

    It's no specific .mp3, more just an organizational issue. I guess I could explain better.

    I have added the My Music folder and all of its sub-folders to the Mezzmo Library. Within the My Music folder I have different genres and time periods broken down. And within these Genres and time periods there are album folders and the majority of my .mp3 files are organized in their individual album folders. A couple of examples

    "Bruno Mars - Grenade"
    D:\Media\My Music\Pop 2010-2019\Bruno Mars - Doo-Wops & Hooligans (Deluxe Version)\01 - Bruno Mars - Grenade.mp3

    ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'
    D:\Media\My Music\Rock - Classic\ZZ Top - Greatest Hits\01 - ZZ Top - Gimme All Your Lovin'.mp3

    Since most of my .mp3 files are organized this way it works fine because the song is immediately identifiable by it's album folder. Even though Mezzmo only labels it "Grenade", I know who the artist is because I traversed the artist and album name to get to the track titled "Grenade".

    However, I have many .mp3 files that are simply a single track with no album association. For instance:

    D:\Media\My Music\Pop 2010-2019\Outasight - Tonight is the Night

    I had no desire to purchase the entire album so there is no sub-folder for "Outasight - Album name here". So as I am browsing via Mezzmo GUI or via my WD Live, these .mp3 files appear after the folders and are identified only by their track name. In this case it is simply labelled Tonight is the Night.

    It would be great if the artist name appeared with these tracks, labelled Outasight - Tonight is the Night or just simply display the filename by default.

    How about using the active playlists that are pre-installed with Mezzmo? These organize all your music by genre, artist & album so they will group them all nicely based on the metadata contained in your MP3 files (i.e. genre, artist, album artist, track, title, year, etc.). You can create your own active playlists also if you want to. Adding folders in Mezzmo is simply a direct respresentation of your folders on your computer/NAS/etc.
