Partner / Co-Head, Global Music

Lil Nas X, Lizzo, Swedish House Mafia, Grimes, Rosalía, and LCD Soundsystem are among the acts on New York-based Kirby Yoh’s roster. But ever since she and David Zedeck convinced Scott Clayton to join them at UTA late last year, the agency’s payroll has swelled, as has its stable of talent. Atlanta office co-head and partner Robert Gibbs, director of artist brand strategy Irene Agbontaen and L.A. agents Aaron Arkin, Janet Kim, Scott Schreiber, Victoria Gutierrez and Scott Mantell have all come on board since December 2021.

Kirby Yoh booked Swedish House Mafia to play Coachella as well as tours for Rosalía and Florence + the Machine.
