AND THEN THERE WERE THREE: CLAYTON JOINS UTA

UTA has added former WME agent Scott Clayton as Partner and Co-Head of its Global Music Division. He joins Global Music Co-Heads Sam Kirby Yoh and David Zedeck.

Nashville-based Clayton became a Partner and Co-Head of WME’s music division in 2020. His roster included John MayerZac Brown Band, Kings of Leon and Dead & Company. Clayton previously worked at CAA for 17 years as Co-Head of the Nashville office. His move to UTA has been among the hottest industry rumors of recent months.

“Scott is the epitome of what we look for in a leader at UTA: He is a strong advocate for artists and has a long history of supporting and mentoring colleagues,” reads a quote from UTA CEO Jeremy Zimmer. “Sam and David have done a great job building a world-class team, and we are very excited for Scott to join us as we continue to grow our music practice.”

Kirby Yoh and Zedeck were equally excited, collectively chiming in with, “Scott is a relentless champion for his clients, and we know that he will bring that same energy to UTA. He is a dedicated leader who has played a significant role in building so many people’s careers. We look forward to collaborating with him as we continue to build our team and do great work for our clients.”

A similarly enthused Clayton said, "Over the past few years, I've witnessed the incredible job UTA has done to expand and elevate the music department. Sam, David and the team have shown true innovation and leadership during this unprecedented time and have really delivered for their artists across all genres.”

In the last year, UTA’s Music Division has added eight agents, acquired Echo Location Talent Agency in London, installed Obi Asika as Co-Head of its U.K. office and opened new headquarters in Nashville.
