Jesse Clegg - Isle of Wight

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. 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. In June, Jesse will be performing on the main stage at UK’s Isle of Wight Festival. Jesse Clegg is a South African alternative rock artist whose 2008 debut album, When I Wake Up, and his 2011 follow up, Life On Mars, have both made the 25-year-old a platinum-selling success in his home country. This is a considerable feat in a place where rock is a niche genre.

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 2nd album. Another notable contributor was Grammy-winning engineer Bob Ludwig who mastered the album in New York.

Descending from a musical family, Jesse spent the first six years of his life on tour with his father, iconic South African singer Johnny Clegg. Jesse has achieved much in the 5 short years he has been active. He has released 4 Top 10 singles and toured extensively throughout South Africa, playing the biggest festivals in the country. 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 over the course of his career.
