Kings Of Leon has signed with WME for exclusive worldwide representation.
The talent agency, who previously represented Kings of Leon for international touring, will now represent the artists in all areas, including music, film, television, books, and endorsements. The move comes after former CAA Nashville co-head Scott Clayton, who represented the group in North America, joined WME as a partner and co-head of WME’s Nashville office.
The band will continue to be managed by Ken Levitan and Andy Mendelsohn at Vector Management.
Since their debut in 2003, Kings of Leon have sold more than 21 million albums and over 38m singles worldwide. Their seventh album WALLS debuted in October at No.1 in the US, UK, Canada, New Zealand, Ireland and Austria, and Top 3 in more than 10 countries including Germany and Australia. It has sold 222,022 copies in the UK to date, according to the Official Charts Company.
The band played a UK arena tour earlier this year and headlined BST Hyde Park.
Two other CAA agents also recently defected to WME - Matthew Morgan joined WME as a music agent and Buster Phillips has joined WME as a rock agent. Both will work from the company’s Nashville office.
