He follows his agent, Scott Clayton, who moved from CAA in November.

John Mayer has officially signed with WME in all areas, The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard have learned.

The agency will exclusively represent him worldwide in music, film, television, books and endorsements. The move keeps Mayer with his agent, Scott Clayton, who stepped down as co-head of CAA’s Nashville office to become co-head of WME Nashville in November. Clayton also is leading WME’s agency-wide rock division.

Mayer actually joined WME last month as part of the band Dead & Company, but today’s signing brings the rest of his business to the firm. As a solo artist, he has won seven Grammys and received a total of 19 nominations while selling more than 20 million albums around the world. Last year he released his seventh album, The Search for Everything, and performed 62 shows across nine countries as part of its world tour.

In addition, 2017 also saw Mayer play 33 stadiums, amphitheaters and arenas with Dead & Company, his touring collaboration with Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir, Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, and join Dave Chappelle for their seven-date joint Controlled Danger Tour, which included a New Year’s Eve show at The Forum in Inglewood, California. 

Mayer continues to be managed by Irving Azoff and Steve Moir.
