I've been trying to figure out if I can shuffle all songs by a certain artist.

All I see is choosing between artist, albums, songs(all), genre, ETC

Is there a way to do this?

On iOS? Go to the "Artist" view in "My Music", click on the "three dot button" next to an artist's name and choose "Play Next". I just tried it, and it added all of an artist's song shuffled to the up next list.

You're welcome. No reason to feel dumb. It's not all that intuitive unless you realize that this "three dot button" is your one stop destination for practically everything in the Music App. Depending on the context, it opens a menu that nearly fills the whole screen of my iPhone 6 Plus. ;)

Apple really should add a short tutorial to the app. Or something like this:


That is about 90% of the documentation needed for the app. ;)
