Booking agent Natasha Bent, who had since 2014 been vice-president of The Agency Group (later UTA), has joined Coda Music Agency.

At Coda – which is also home to acts including Take That, The Prodigy, Ellie Goulding, Rudimental, Lethal Bizzle, Jess Glynne, Bastille and Halsey – Bent will be assisted by James Tones.
