His departure is timed with Casey Wasserman's takeover of the agency.
Paul Morris, founder of the AM Only booking agency and one of the best known agents in electronic music, is leaving Paradigm to work exclusively with superstar dance artist Tiesto, Billboard has learned.
His exit will be timed with the takeover of the agency by Casey Wasserman in a deal brokered with Tom Gores, the billionaire brother of Paradigm founder Sam Gores who had to cede control of the agency's famed music department following a liquidity crisis that began during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last year. A source tells Billboard that Morris will focus full time on Tiesto, one of his longest held clients, and join the artist's internal management group. Hits Daily Double was first to report the news of Morris' plans.
