WME Music Co-Head Scott Clayton Is Leaving for UTA

The powerhouse Nashville agent who reps John Mayer and Kings of Leon was promoted to help lead WME’s music division in June 2020.

Powerhouse agent Scott Clayton has left WME and is heading over to United Talent Agency, sources tell Billboard.

In June 2020, Clayton was promoted to co-head of WME’s music division along with Kirk Sommer in Los Angeles and Lucy Dickins in London when Marc Geiger and Sara Newkirk Simon left the roles.

This is the second major move in recent years for the Nashville-based agent who represents John Mayer, Zac Brown Band and Kings of Leon. In 2017, Clayton rocked Nashville when he quit CAA to work for cross-town rival WME.
