Jesse Clegg is a singer-songwriter whose three studio albums (‘When I Wake Up’, ‘Life On Mars’ and ‘Things Unseen’) have made the 27-year-old a platinum-selling success in his home country.

After the widespread acclaim of his first album, Jesse's music caught the attention of three-time Grammy-winning Canadian producer David Bottrill (Muse, Tool, Placebo), and Jesse subsequently moved to Toronto to produce the album. Another notable contributor was Grammy-winning engineer Bob Ludwig, who mastered the album in New York.

In 2014, Jesse brought his music to the International stage. He embarked on a seven-week tour across the United States and Canada, and played numerous high profile showcase festivals, including the CMJ Music Marathon, New Music Seminar, and the CBGB Festival. He also performed on the main stage at UK's Isle of Wight Festival.

His latest album ‘Things Unseen’ debuted in the iTunes Top 10 albums chart. The latest single “Breathing” features a collaboration with one of South Africa’s hottest young acts, Shekhinah.

The son of iconic South-African musician Johnny Clegg, Jesse spent the first six years of his life on tour with his father. He has released six Top 10 singles and toured extensively throughout South Africa.

As an official ambassador for the Nelson Mandela 46664 Foundation, Jesse was invited to play at Radio City Music Hall in New York for the annual Mandela Day Concert. He has been nominated for three South African Music Awards. 

He performs during the live show of 28 May, along with Kahn and Karen, who recently collaborated for the first time. Kahn has followed this up with two more singles from his upcoming album ‘A Noise In The Void’.
