The Event

Jesse Clegg is a South African Singer-Songwriter whose three studio albums, When I Wake Up, his 2011 follow up Life On Mars, and his latest album, Things Unseen, have made the young artist a platinum-selling success in his home Country.


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. Jesse has been nominated for four South African Music Awards.


Jesse collaborated with his father in 2017 for the first time, writing a song titled “I’ve Been Looking” which was released in March 2018. Jesse also performed together with Johnny for the first time ever, on the sold out International Final Journey tour.


After the widespread acclaim of his first album, Jesse’s music caught the attention of 3-time Grammy-winning Canadian producer David Bottrill (Muse, Tool, Placebo). Jesse subsequently moved to Toronto for 4 months to work with Bottrill who produced his second album. Life on Mars was recorded at Metalworks Studios in Mississauga, Ontario.


In 2014, Jesse brought his music to the International stage. He embarked on a seven-week tour across the United States and Canada, which comprised of 32 shows in 31 cities. On June 14, 2014, Jesse performed on the main stage at UK’s Isle of Wight Festival.


2015 saw Jesse returning to studio to record new material for his 3rd studio release, entitled Things Unseen. The first single, “Use Me”, was released in July, and immediately started charting on national radio, reaching the No. 1 spot on several stations. It remained in the iTunes Top 40 for 3 months.


The 2nd single, “Souvenir”, was released in December, and the album was launched in June 2016 at a sold out event in Johannesburg. The album debuted in the iTunes Top 10 albums chart. The 3rd single “Breathing” was the second No. 1 single off of the album. That year Jesse completed his 2nd North American tour, where he played 36 shows across the continent from 17 March to the 1st of May 2016.


In 2017, Jesse was selected as an official artist at SXSW and performed several shows in Austen, TX, as well as LA. A collaboration with legendary DJ’s Kentphonik entitled “I’ll Follow You” was also released this year; the song was met with critical acclaim in South Africa and was the most played song in the Country during its release.
