NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess) — Lee Olsen’s Cumberland Music Collective announced it has acquired the Nashville-based music agency KCA Artists, founded by the music city legend Keith Case.
The deal will see CMC take over booking duties for KCA’s roster, including The Seldom Scene, Radney Foster, Blue Highway, and The Fairfield Four
New additions to the roster include motor-mouthed rapper Twista, R&B powerhouse Nivea, and female vocal group Danity Kane.
“With CMC, we now have an opportunity to create a larger tent; offering many different styles of music to a wider audience. This will be a new kind of touring music company that we expect will offer opportunities for unlimited growth; for both artists and agents alike for years to come,” says Lee Olsen, President and Senior Agent at Cumberland Music Collective.
KCA’s existing staff will continue after the transition. Andrew Bestick will continue as an agent in addition to his new role of Vice President. Case’s former Agent Assistant, Jess Mosby, will become an agent and represent her own roster at CMC while agent assistant Anna Dietz will continue in that capacity.
“First, I have to thank Keith Case for his generous help in getting CMC off the ground. KCA Artists has been a leader, for many years, in the acoustic music field; representing such legends as Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Hartford, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch and many more. I have been honored to work there for over 20 years.”
