Highly acclaimed South African musician Jesse Clegg takes to the Bay Harbour Sound Stage for a special ‘Live and Unplugged’ session on Thursday, December 6th.
In the space of two short years, Jesse Clegg has streaked into the top of the radio charts and into the hearts of music fans throughout South Africa. The vehicle for this has been the 22-year-old’s debut album, ‘When I Wake Up’ which was released in 2008 and has, so far, produced an enviable five radio singles. It’s also sold gold (20 000) and is heading for platinum status – a not inconsiderable feat for an out-and-out pop-rock album in a market where these genres have to fight for media attention and airtime space.
With his second solo record, platinum-selling artist Jesse Clegg takes a bold step forward to create a rock ‘n roll record that is as true to the genre’s roots as it is visionary. Titled ‘Life On Mars’, the album sees Clegg make a pretty astonishing leap from his 2008 debut, “When I Wake Up” – which, in spite of the substantial sales, radioplay and nominations it earned, was now clearly only a first step into an exciting music career for the 22-year-old.
