MORRIS TO EXIT WASS
WITH TIESTO

AM Only founder Paul Morris will exit Paradigm amicably when Casey Wasserman and his gang of five take control of the newly created Wasserman music agency in the next couple of weeks.

Sources said Morris will be leaving with longtime client Tiesto and joining his in-house management team, which will include booking the superstar DJ’s live shows worldwide, as they create a much more contained business centered around the Dutch DJ and record producer’s activities.

Morris was said to have spent this past weekend speaking with several of his other clients, reassuring and helping them transition to the new Wasserman company.

Morris’ lieutenant and Paradigm exec Lee Anderson was elevated to one of the favored five to run day-to-day operations at the new company.

Paradigm in 2012 purchased Morris’ electronic-heavy AM Only, whose roster included such top DJ talent as Skrillex, Tiesto and Zedd, and brought Morris and Anderson in house in 2017.

Contrary to recent reports stating that Morris would seek early retirement when his deal at Wasserman Paradigm was officially up, he decided to expand his relationship with his longtime client, considered by many to be the “godfather of EDM.”
