Cape Town - Platinum selling artist, Jesse Clegg, returns to the Eastern and Western Cape this December and January for a summer acoustic tour. 

Fresh off of his three week US and Canada tour, Jesse will be showcasing his music in a variety of unplugged performances. He will be visiting multiple cities across South Africa including Port Elizabeth, East London, Knysna, Mossel Bay and Cape Town.

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 second North American tour, playing 36 shows across the continent. 

Jesse released Things Unseen in June this year with the singles Use Me, Souvenir and 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 three of South Africa's top contemporary artists. 

Blending Jesse's hitmaker songwriting, Shekhinah's soulful voice and Kent's instantly recognisable beats, the track is now accompanied by a moody and emotive music video that captures the essence and energy of the song.
