Former Paradigm Talent Agent Carly James has just made the move as one of the newest booking agents in the New York offices of Creative Artists Agency (CAA), according to a report in Pollstar. She is the responsible agent for Brit Award-nominated band IDLES, Fontaines D.C., Squid, Tomberlin, Mild High Club and one of our new favorites around the MusicBizHub offices, girl in red.
James started off as a booking coordinator at Paradigm in 2015, a position considered to be a step between agent assistant and full-fledged agent, responsible for day-to-day routing and coordination of tours, appearances, concerts, etc for a selection of the artists represented by the agency. A booking coordinator is typically attached to a specific agent and works, more or less, as their right hand. In the entertainment and broadcasting industry, a booking coordinator is part of a post-production department, and is responsible for scheduling talent, creative, and technical personnel and services to be available for the post-production team. Prior to her tenure at Paradigm Talent Agency, Carly James spent a few years as an assistant at The Agency Group (now United Talent Agency, or UTA) beginning there in 2012.
