CAA announced Monday (Nov. 30) that it is bolstering its music team by adding three new agents to its staff, with Adam Brill (Los Angeles), Ben Buchanan (Toronto) and Brian Hill (Nashville) joining the company.

All three are bringing artists with them to CAA. Brill, formerly at APA, arrives with Awolnation and Capital Cities, among others, while Buchanan makes the move from the Windish Agency along with the likes of Japandroids, Blood Orange and Jagwar Ma. Hill, who started his career at CAA and most recently worked for Paradigm, brings the Eli Young Band, Jack Ingram and more along with him.

“Adam, Ben and Brian are proven successes in discovering and nurturing the careers of emerging artists,” CAA Music chief Rob Light said in a statement. “They will thrive within CAA’s collaborative model of client service.”

The three additions come less than a month after high-powered hip-hop agent Cara Lewis -- who worked with Eminem, Iggy Azalea and Waka Flocka Flame -- parted ways with the company. Empire star Jussie Smollett is CAA's latest big-name addition to its extensive client roster after signing on board Nov. 9.
