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 28-year-old a platinum-selling success in his home country. He has released six Top 10 singles and toured extensively throughout South Africa. In 2014, Jesse brought his music to the international stage with a seven-week tour across the United States and Canada, and returned to North America in 2016 for his 2nd North American Tour, playing 36 shows across the continent. Jesse released Things Unseen in June this year with the singles ‘Use Me’, ‘Souvenir’ & ‘Breathing’ all charting nationally.

In September, following on from the radio success of the dynamic DJ Kent’s remix of Breathing (featuring Shekhinah), Jesse released a re-imagined music video for the single. Already a radio hit in its original form, Breathing, featuring Shekhinah, was remixed by legendary House DJ, DJ Kent. The result is a unique collaboration between 3 of South Africa’s top contemporary artists. Blending Jesse’s hit-maker songwriting, Shekhinah’s soulful voice and Kent’s instantly recognizable beats, the track is now accompanied by a moody and emotive music video that captures the essence & energy of the song.

Tour dates and ticket links can be found on Jesse Clegg’s website.

Things Unseen is available for download on all digital platforms.
