Biography

Jesse Clegg (born 1988) is a South African alternative rock artist whose debut album, When I Wake Up, and his 2011 follow up Life On Mars, have made the 25-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 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. Another notable contributor was Grammy-winning engineer Bob Ludwig who mastered the album in New York.

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 four Top 10 singles and toured extensively throughout South Africa. As an official ambassador for the Nelson Mandela 46664 Foundation, Jesse has been 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.

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 32 shows in 31 cities. He has also played numerous high profile showcase festivals in the U.S. - including the CMJ Music Marathon, New Music Seminar, and the CBGB Festival. On June 14, 2014, Jesse will be performing on the main stage at UK's Isle of Wight Festival.
