UTA is expanding with six new additions to their Nashville headquarters. Emily LaRose, Marissa Smith and Elisa Vazzana join as Music Agents, Amy Lynch joins the Comedy Touring division as an Agent, Brandi Brammer will serve as Senior HR Business Partner and Emily Wright serves as a Music Brand Partnerships Agent.

The new additions come shortly after recent hires including Nashville-based Scott Clayton as Co-Head of Global Music, Matthew Morgan as Co-Head of UTA Nashville and Buster Phillips as a Rock Agent.

“We are honored to welcome this powerhouse group of industry professionals into our Music City headquarters,” said David Zedeck, Partner/Co-Head of Global Music. “The collective breadth and scope of our new colleagues will be a tremendous addition as we continue to expand our footprint in Nashville and beyond.”
