Since our inception over 10 years ago, Success Express has fast become a leading hub for creatives and audiences alike. Our DNA and passion for community have helped bring like-minded people together, and together, we have all created one positive voice within the independent music and arts scene. Whether it’s providing artists with a platform to grow and flourish, or cultivating exciting events and new landscapes for audiences to discover a new wave of unique artists, venues and friends. Success Express is a supportive, honest and collaborative platform, providing a beating heart for the creative community. Find us at our ExpressLive events at varied and exciting venues around London.


Yorkshireman Leo has been busy writing for other artists and returns to the stage tonight after a break from gigging, to air some of the songs he’s currently working on in the studio. With previous performances at Bush Hall and Islington’s O2 Academy, Songwriting Magazine have called his work ‘Simon & Garfunkel-ish’ and ‘rousing’.


Acoustic soul singer/songwriter from London, blessed with a rich, complex and unique voice, and thoughtful uplifting songwriting. Influenced from the classic to the more recent soul legends, drawing melodies from acoustic roots.  Jesse’s stong influences are drawn from the soul greats including Donny Hathaway, Marvin Gaye, D'angelo, Seal, India Arie, Stevie Wonder, Boyz II Men, John Mayer, Jimi Hendrix, Prince and more. 


Take a pop sensibility; add a dash of classic rock influence, a bucket load of soul and a sprinkling of African rhythms and you’ll get Stone Jets — an outfit whose music simply cannot be outworn. With their multi-cultural background, Given and Manfred’s sound transcends boundaries. Their toe-tapping tunes cater to any taste while still staying true to their ethos. James Morrison called them “amazingly talented” while others have raved about their live performances. After conquering their home country, the band is ready to share their magic with Europe.  


Logan Jay Parker takes her cue from early influences like Memphis Minnie and Screaming Jay Hawkins. She might still throw an occasional blues cover into the mix but these days her set-list is mostly drawn from a deep well of highly original songs - epic tales of love, loss and betrayal. Her voice is singular too, like an unusual instrument... by turns raw and restless when required, switching to a subtle caress at unexpected moments. Logan J. Parker’s much anticipated debut album is due for release later this year.
