LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — United Talent Agency announced that it has expanded its music division with the addition of veteran music agents Jeffrey Hasson and Matt Meyer.
Hasson will join UTA’s Nashville office and will be part of the leadership team there, while Meyer will be based out of UTA’s Los Angeles headquarters.
Hasson comes to UTA after a stint at Paradigm and has worked with an array of clients across multiple genres, including the likes of Young The Giant, Tori Kelly, Surfaces, Jamey Johnson, Dashboard Confessional, Dayglow, Blues Traveler, Coin, and Ruston Kelly, among others.
“I’m so excited to join the UTA team, and a music department with such great momentum. The company’s perseverance and navigation through these trying times has been very admirable,” said Hasson. “I can’t wait to share all of UTA’s incredible cross-department resources with my clients to help elevate their business.”
Meyer began his career at the EDM-focused agency AM Only, and later joined Paradigm as part of their acquisition of AM Only. He has worked with a roster that included likes of Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Dicky, Don Toliver, Tinashe, Yungblud, Cash Cash, Eden, and The Knocks, among others. His notable achievements include helping to develop the career of recording artist Halsey from an opening festival act to an arena headliner.
“I am grateful to be joining the team at UTA during a time when they have showcased real innovation and done amazing work on behalf of their clients,” said Meyer. “Everyone has been extremely supportive of this next chapter in my career and I am looking forward to collaborating with my new colleagues to both expand my clients’ passions outside of music and creating a great touring business.”
“Jeffrey and Matt have impeccable track records of identifying and developing emerging artists and creating unique opportunities for their clients,” said David Zedeck, Co-Head of UTA’s Music department. “Jeffrey is well-respected within the Nashville music community, and Matt has his finger firmly on the pulse for the next generation of hitmakers.
