Former CAA Music Agent Buster Phillips Joins WME
He follows Scott Clayton and Matthew Morgan, who made the same jump last week.
In a move many expected, Buster Phillips has officially joined WME as a rock agent in the company’s Nashville office. He recently left CAA, where he led the college booking group and later became co-head of its festival booking group.
Phillips' hiring follows last week’s surprise announcements that both Scott Clayton and Matthew Morgan had exited CAA and will now operate a rock department out of WME's Nashville office.
During his 15-year career, Phillips has worked with Gov’t Mule, Iron & Wine, Third Eye Blind, The Wallflowers, Kathleen Edwards, Lori McKenna, Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors, Low Cut Connie, Savannah Conley, The Record Company, Devon Gilfillian, The War and Treaty, Amasa Hines and Marlon Williams, among others.
