Lenny Kravitz has signed with UTA in all areas, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. He was previously with CAA.
With “Fly Away,” “American Woman,” “Again” and “Dig In,” the rocker won four straight Grammys for best male rock vocal performance from 1999 through 2002, setting the record for most consecutive Grammy wins by a male artist in a single category. Four of his 10 studio albums have gone platinum (1991’s Mama Said, 1993’s Are You Gonna Go My Way and 1998’s 5), and his 2000 Greatest Hits compilation went triple-platinum.
Not including cameos, Kravitz made his acting debut in 2009’s Precious, then reteamed with director Lee Daniels for 2013’s The Butler. He also portrayed Katniss Everdeen’s stylist Cinna in The Hunger Games and its sequel Catching Fire.
The multihyphenate’s interior and product design firm Kravitz Design has commissioned projects for brands including CB2, Kartell and Swarovski as well as both luxury residences and public spaces in Manhattan and Miami. As a photographer, Kravitz also has collaborated with high-end camera brand Leica and in 2015 held an exhibition of his black-and-white prints at Art Basel.
UTA chairman Jim Berkus will take point on Kravitz’s team, which will work across music, touring, fine art and licensing, branding and endorsements. The artist continues to be repped by International Talent Booking in the U.K. and by manager Craig Fruin at CSM.
