Matthew Morgan has joined UTA as Co-Head of its Nashville office, working alongside Co-Head Jeffrey Hasson. Rock agent Buster Phillips has also joined UTA’s Music City operation.

Morgan, who spent 13 years at CAA, has worked with Lizzo, Zac Brown Band, JP Saxe, Keane, The Revivalists and many others. He was instrumental to Lizzo’s career by introducing her to her producer and label, creating a touring strategy that took her from clubs to arenas and brokering film, TV, publishing and endorsement deals, among others.

Phillips has been an agent for the better part of 20 years. He created the college and festival divisions at CAA and contributed to the festival business at WME. He has represented such acts as Gov’t Mule, Low Cut Connie, Nicole Atkins and The War and Treaty.

“Matthew and Buster are well-respected agents with collective decades of experience working with artists across multiple genres. They are fierce advocates for their clients, and we are thrilled to welcome them to UTA,” said David Zedeck, Partner and Co-Head of Global Music. “Our Nashville office is rapidly expanding, and that momentum will continue under Matthew and Jeffrey’s leadership.”

Morgan and Phillips’ announcement follows UTA’s recent hiring of Nashville-based Scott Clayton as Co-Head of Global Music.
