Paradigm was awarded Booking Agency of the Year at the Pollstar Awards in February, with Gores accepting the award on stage joined by a mob of major agents including Diamond, Tom Windish, Sam Hunt, Rob Zifarelli, Joe Atamian and many others. The agency in recent years has expanded by acquiring or merging  with other major agencies including AM Only, The Windish Agency, and UK-based CODA. The agency became a music powerhouse in the mid-2000s when aquiring Monterey Peninsula Artists and Little Big Man, giving it a stable of major clients on both coasts.

Barrett, previously at UTA, has worked on marketing campaigns for artists including Courtney Barnett, Fever Ray, K.Flay, Shakey Graves and others. Bluestone joined Paradigm in 2014 as an assistant and later became booking coordinator. His roster includes Lauv, shallou, Harry Hudson, and others.

His clients include electronic duo Grey and Los Angeles-based brand Space Yacht, and he works closely with Rodriguez on JAUZ, Slushii, and Krewella, among others.
