Keith Case & Associates, the well-known talent agency representing some of the biggest names in bluegrass, Americana, roots, songwriting and indie rock, is now known as KCA Artists. Owner Keith Case explains, “We’ve been known as ‘KCA’ for years. With this change, we are making it official and have created an updated image that reinforces the brand.”
The new name reflects how the company has grown since its inception more than 30 years ago. “In the early days, we were known for bluegrass music,” says Case. “Today we run the gamut—we still have bluegrass clients, but we are also representing the very best talent in many different styles of music. The lines of these genres cross, yet the agency has remained solid, changing to reflect what our industry looks like today.”
Case started his career in Denver and relocated to Nashville in 1982. As a talent agent, manager and/or promoter he has represented famed musicians including the late Townes Van Zandt, Alison Krauss & Union Station, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and Robert Earl Keen.
KCA Artists’ current roster includes Guy Clark, Nashville Bluegrass Band, The Seldom Scene, Jesse Winchester, Suzy Bogguss, Sierra Hull & Highway 111, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Matraca Berg, The SteelDrivers, Billy Joe Shaver, Steep Canyon Rangers, Matrimony, Ralph Stanley, The Farewell Drifters, Peter Rowan, Tony Rice, the Fairfield Four and many others.
Case also praises his staff: “We feel that we have the strongest team in the agency’s history. As the industry changes and evolves, we grow with it while remaining steadfast.” On board are agents Logan Bosemer, John Everhart and Lee Olsen; GM and artist manager Claire Armbruster; contract administrator Marilee Chipoletti; and agent assistants Jessi Shores and Brian Solomon.
