Cumberland Music Collective Out of the Gates with All-Star Lineup

Cumberland Music Collective is proud to announce its acquisition of Nashville’s premier acoustic music agency, KCA Artists. CMC will continue to book legendary acts, such as The Seldom Scene, Radney Foster, Blue Highway, and The Fairfield Four, in addition to greatly diversifying their roster.

“With CMC, we now have an opportunity to create a larger tent; offering many different styles of music to a wider audience. This will be a new kind of touring music company that we expect will offer opportunities for unlimited growth; for both artists and agents alike for years to come,” says Lee Olsen, President and Senior Agent at Cumberland Music Collective. New additions to the roster include motor-mouthed rapper, Twista, R&B powerhouse, Nivea, and female vocal group superstars, Danity Kane. See CMC’s full roster below.

Lee Olsen spent two decades as an agent at Keith Case Artists and does not take the responsibility of carrying this torch lightly. "First, I have to thank Keith Case for his generous help in getting CMC off the ground. KCA Artists has been a leader, for many years, in the acoustic music field; representing such legends as Alison Krauss & Union Station, John Hartford, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Gillian Welch and many more. I have been honored to work there for over 20 years.”

In addition to Olsen, the existing team from KCA is staying on board. Andrew Bestick will continue as an agent in addition to his new role of Vice President. Case’s former Agent Assistant, Jess Mosby, will have her own roster as an agent at CMC. Rounding out the team is Agent Assistant, Anna Dietz, making Cumberland Music Collective very familiar to artists and talent buyers who’ve worked with them previously.
