TERRI-SIAN LUGOSI, MANAGING DIRECTOR
I have always had a passion for music. I remember attending my ‘Kinder Music’ lessons with such excitement at the age of four, which lead to my amazing career.
After finishing school I enrolled in a Music Production course college. At this point, I was already fronting a band and dabbling in the recording side of things. I started playing more live shows and discovered that also had an interest in the live music business.
College finished and I entered the world of work. I carried on playing in various bands throughout the years, helping mates out with managerial duties, touring in various roles alongside juggling a succession of dead-end jobs.
In 2011, I discovered a Live Sound and Tour Production course at BIMM, and it changed my life. Within a couple of months of starting at the university, I was offered a position at a booking agency, along with working as a Promoter Rep on shows for local and national promoters and Production on many major festivals across the U.K.
Beating Hearts Agency was created in 2017, I'd just finished working with the previous agency and I found that as well as booking shows, I could offer consultancy for artists, pulling on my past personal knowledge of touring and understanding the day to day issues that Artists face making music their career.
My other work includes being a Senior Event Control Manager, on large-scale events, protests, and festivals across the country.
During the pandemic, I have been busy taking on Key Worker roles and volunteering for projects related to the events industry. I am the Secretary for Brighton E:P:I:C (Event Professionals Independent Committee), got involved in the national #LightItInRed campaigns, supported our friends raising funds on the #SurvivalTour in our city, and helped put together the Silent Nights industry fundraiser alongside #WeMakeEvents and #ExcludedUK.
"Beating Hearts has secured us several profitable and well-organised UK tours for Cold in Berlin. Terri is always on hand to assist while on the road. Have recommended her to friends who now enjoy being on the roster". - Cold In Berlin
