PizzaExpress Live (Holborn)

Success Express continues to introduce exciting new Independent artists to new audiences at PizzaExpress Live. We are thrilled to present a wonderful trio of artists, performing acoustically, and headlined by Swedish soul pop singer-songwriter Karin Fransson and band. 

"Her music, melodic, melancholic and soulful, powerfully evokes her true emotions that have driven her to produce an outstanding debut album. Andy Mitchell, the current front man of the ‘Yardbirds’ says "Karin has an amazing voice… Top class."

Karin Fransson

Swedish born and raised Karin Fransson, moved to London to delve deeper into the singer songwriter life. Her soulful, upbeat and on occasionally mellow songs reflect her journey through life’s many transitions and tribulations. Song writing is her passion and forte, which has been backed up by both her live and recording work as a session musician for the likes of Omar and the Temptations amongst others. Her dreams were realised when she played on stage at Ronnie Scott’s where she felt right at home, as much as on the UK and European festival scene where her voice and guitar shine bright.  This highly regarded artist brings her full band to Pizza Express Live for a signature headline show. 

"it's gentle and atmospheric but with a stunning 'popness' all of it's own. very good indeed." Rough Trade - Rough Trade


Satis is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from northern England writing and producing rock influenced pop music,    With musical influences including John Mayer, Ben Howard and Maroon 5, Satis’s vocals are a key component of his music, which engages audiences with dynamism and vitality and offsets his strong songwriting.  Satis wrote and produced his first 15 track album at the age of 14 and at the age of 20 he recorded an acoustic EP that led to all of the tracks being picked up by BBC Introducing Leeds.
