Music Agents and Scouts

Outlook

Employment in the music and entertainment field is expected to increase in response to the demand for entertainment from a growing population. The U.S. Department of Labor predicts employment growth for agents and business managers of artists, performers, and athletes to be about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2024. The number of musicians also continues to grow, creating fierce competition for all jobs in this industry. The competition will drive the need for more music agents and scouts to find talented individuals and place them in the best jobs. This is a very difficult career to break into, and most successful music agents spend years building their experience and client list in smaller markets before they enjoy a modicum of success.
