Success Express continues to introduce exciting new Independent artists to new audiences at PizzaExpress Live. Our first show of 2024 is a young, exciting lineup, introducing seven piece funk soul indie collective The Grove, BRIT School alumni and rising nu-jazz artist Phoebe Rea and RnB and Cellist/singer-songwriter Satin Beige. 

The Grove

The Grove is a seven-piece music collective fronted by Habiba Sesay, whose unique and captivating vocals instantly draw in fans. The Grove take many influences, capturing inflections of funk, soul, and indie to create a varied yet coherent and adventurous style which is all their own.  With three singles released on Spotify to date, the Grove are in the process of recording their anticipated debut EP, whilst performing a string of packed out shows across London, including the 02 Academy Islington, The Half-Moon Putney, The Bedford, The Troubadour and more.

Phoebe Rea

Starting her career right out of Brit school, Phoebe quickly gained attention from The Other Songs’ Alastair and Billy Webber and in 2018 was selected by BBC Introducing to perform at Truck Festival. Following a break spurred by complicated management deals and a worldwide pandemic, Phoebe has broken free from industry expectations and is stepping into an innovative new form Phoebe Rea reps a fresh sound, blending pop ballads with nu-jazz and electronic elements, her new genre-bending sound is here to illuminate a timeless, sophisticated pop sound. Boasting soulful vocals as big as her hair, her new single 'Easier' exudes an effortless elegance, irresistible to vintage and new audiences alike. Cinematic, melancholic, and unapologetic, ‘Easier’ is an anthem to heartbreak and simultaneously the mending of hearts everywhere.

Satin Beige

Satin Beige is an R&B cellist and singer songwriter. Her music has been described by Getintothis as “cello infused, lyrically soulful R ‘n’ B” with “something of an Ed Sheeran and Alicia Keys lovechild vibe”.
