Train and Kings of Leon also join WME roster following Scott Clayton's move to the company last month from CAA.
Dead & Company has signed with WME for exclusive representation. The band featuring the Grateful Dead’s Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann and Bob Weir, along with artist and musician John Mayer, Allman Brothers’ bassist Oteil Burbridge and Fare Thee Well and RatDog keyboardist Jeff Chimenti will be represented by WME in all areas, including music, film, television, books and endorsements. Dead & Company are managed by Bernie Cahill and Irving Azoff/Steve Moir.
The band joins WME following the hiring of Scott Clayton, who resigned from a leadership post at Creative Artist Agency last month to accept a position as partner and co-head of WME's Nashville office and lead WME’s Rock division.
