Hoping you are aware of the URIBurner service we provide? If so, when 
you use its bookmarklet or ODE [2]  extension against resources in music 
oriented data spaces such as: MusicBrainz, Last.FM, Discogs.org, you 
will get an HTML+RDFa representation of the page metadata (with lookups 
elsewhere) [3] that ultimately exposes (via foaf:primarytopic) the 
Artist, Album, Record associated with the page [4].


1. http://www.uriburner.com
2. http://ode.openlinksw.com
-- MBZ resource
-- primarytopic proxy/wrapper URI for entity: Teddy P. with lookups 
elsewhere e.g. Last.FM
-- A song by Teddy P.

Note: if you want to get really slick you can sparql against the 
proxy/wrapper URI with reasoning enabled and create interesting 
mesh-ups  (via owl:sameAs and/or Inverse Property value e.g. foaf:name 
expansion/smushing/explosion etc..) across different data sources within 
the host Virtuoso instance or across the Linked Data Web. You can also 
just go to: http://lod.openlinksw.com, find an artist, lookup usage 
stats, and see the actual co-references and indirect co-references 
presented to you, then if want them to become part of your "context 
lense" you simply enable the reasoner with "owl:sameAs" and the "b3sifp" 
rules on.

Example using Michael Jackson is at the top of my demo list at:
