CAA Brings Aboard Music Touring Agent Cheryl Paglierani & Clients Including Post Malone

CAA has added Cheryl Paglierani, a top music touring agent, and a client list that includes Post Malone, 21 Savage and Dominic Fike. Paglierani, who’d been at CAA once before, leaves UTA, where she was a partner. She’d also been an agent at WMA back in the day and worked at The Agency Group.

Paglierani is a strong player in the music space and also signed Flo Mili, Jessie Murp and others. She was named twice to Billboard’s “Power 100” list and has been recognized on Billboard’s “Hip Hop Power List” for the past five years. This year, she was named to both Pollstar’s “Women of Live” and “Impact 50” lists.

21 Savage recently finished a 30-date North American amphitheater tour that sold over 140,000 tickets and will be headlining a number of festivals this summer across Europe including Wireless, Roskilde, Splash! and Frauenfeld. She began working with Post Malone from very early in his career and throughout his development to becoming a worldwide superstar. Post Malone has had the No. 1 song for the past five weeks with his recent country release with Morgan Wallen of “I Had Some Help,” ahead of Post Malone’s forthcoming country project F-1 Trillion, due out August 16.  He’s also done well in film roles including the Doug Liman-directed Road House and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Her acumen, experience, and character will make her an outstanding member of our team.”

“It’s an incredible feeling to return to CAA,” said Paglierani. “I’m excited to work with this extremely talented and driven team. I’ve been lucky to call so many of them friends for years and can’t wait to hit the ground running together.”
