UTA has signed The War And Treaty for booking representation, with exclusive worldwide representation in all areas. Founded in 2014 by the husband-and-wife duo Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter, The War And Treaty has quickly become one of the most exciting new musical acts.
They recently teamed with Zach Bryan for the song “Hey Driver,” which reached the top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. The War And Treaty is nominated for vocal duo of the year at the upcoming CMA Awards in Nashville and will also perform during the ceremony.
“I was immediately drawn to The War And Treaty for their commanding vocals and stunning harmonies,” said UTA agent Buster Phillips in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome them to the UTA family and excited to continue creating amazing moments together.”
“I am incredibly excited about our new partnership with UTA and to reunite with our long-term agent and friend, Buster Phillips,” said Tanya Trotter. “Buster and everyone at UTA are committed to helping us achieve our goals of not only growing The War And Treaty touring, but continuing our expansion into film, tv, and theater.”
“The UTA team has embraced us like family,” added Michael Trotter Jr. “Buster would kick doors down for us – both figuratively and even physically if he had to! UTA feels right for us, and we couldn’t be more excited for the future with them on our side.”
The War And Treaty signed to UMG Nashville in 2022. Their latest album, Lover’s Game, was released in March 2023 and includ the songs “That’s How Love is Made” and “Ain’t No Harmin’ Me.” The duo has performed onstage at the ACM Honors and 2023 National Memorial Day Concert and performed alongside Dierks Bentley at the 2021 ACM Awards, offering a rendition of U2’s “Pride (In the Name of Love).” They also joined Brothers Osborne on the 2022 CMA Awards stage for a rendition of “It’s Only Rock n’ Roll (But I Like It).”
