Lisa Agasee

BIOGRAPHY

A classically trained pianist from the age of seven with an inherent love of music, Lisa was sixteen when a fateful meeting with a well-known music publicist inspired her to pursue a career in the music industry.

 

In the mid 1980s Lisa joined EMI Records. She began her career with a hit, launching Anglo/American group Katrina & The Waves classic ‘Walking on Sunshine’.  She then promoted the debut album of a little known Australian three piece. Crowded House went on to become one of the most successful international bands of the next two decades

 

Moving to Epic Records in 1987, Lisa was part of the PR team for Michael Jackson’s BAD and Dangerous UK tours. She was solely responsible for campaigns for a wide roster of US artists including cult group 'Til Tuesday (whose singer is now successful solo artist Aimee Mann), Luther Vandross, The Spin Doctors, Daryl Hall and Queen of Country Tammy Wynette. Lisa also specialised in the launch and development of the label’s priority pop acts including number one-selling artists B*Witched and Michael Jackson's nephews 3T.  

After more than twenty years experience in PR, Lisa built up an exceptional reputation within the UK press. She proved her flexibility by diversifying from her music roots to achieve the first national press coverage for up and coming Pop artist Dan Proops (grandson of agony aunt Marjorie) whose oil on canvas paintings explored the link between art and technology and to make her mark with the launches of Hollywood fitness technique Bootcamp Pilates’ now extremely successful studios in Notting Hill and Shoreditch.

For three years, Lisa also worked for film industry specialist Premier PR on their BAFTA campaigns for Paramount Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Pathe, and Entertainment Films.

Lisa decided to use her wealth of transferable skills to set up as a Personal Assistant in 2014 and now supports various private and business clients in many different areas.
