UPDATE: Kygo has joined William Morris Endeavor, also known as WME. His booking will now be overseen by the US head of WME, Joel Zimmerman, who coincidentally shares the same name as one of his clients, deadmau5.
LessThan3 has learned that tropical house superstar Kygo has been dropped by booking company AM Only as a result of differences with his manager, Myles Shear.
Shear, the Founder/CEO of Golden Hare Group, also represents Thomas Jack and Riff Raff. While no specific reasons for Kygo’s release have been revealed, our source has pinned the issue on Shear being difficult to work with. AM Only is one of the largest electronic music booking agencies in the world, representing hundreds of artists including Zedd, Above & Beyond, and Skrillex.
