On Monday, South African musician Jesse Clegg wowed the Breakfast with Martin Bester team and our listeners with a live performance of his song, 'Waiting On The Outcome'. Watch here

Multi-talented singer-songwriter Jesse Clegg has unveiled the highly anticipated music video for his latest single, 'Called To Hear Your Voice'. Known for his emotive lyrics and captivating melodies, Jesse's new music video takes viewers on a journey through the universal experience of longing and connection

When asked about the concept behind the video, Jesse Clegg shared, "In one sense there's a sadness that arises from missing someone, but it's also a blessing to have those special people in life that we are so connected to and miss them when we aren’t with them. The video tries to convey that longing but also the joy of finally reconnecting."

The music video was filmed in Johannesburg and Cape Town. "Cape Town is like a character in the story," Jesse explained. 

"We also received support from Inverroche Gin and The Taj Hotel who helped to make the video possible," While most of the video was shot in Cape Town, the performance shots were shot in Johannesburg. "I enjoyed performing the song solo to camera,” Jesse shared. “I wrote the song in LA and was feeling homesick and missing my family. To be back home and sing it for the music video was a nice full-circle moment.” 

Jesse Clegg has been making waves internationally, recently returning from a series of performances in New York. His dynamic performances included sharing the stage with Walk The Moon at a major festival in Wisconsin to over sixty thousand people in the crowd, headlining his own shows, and performing with South African composer, singer, and songwriter, Msaki while over there. During his time in New York, Jesse also dedicated moments to crafting new music, where he was in the studio with the likes of James Patterson from The Knocks.

Jesse Clegg has cemented himself as a music industry standout with a series of chart-topping hits like "Let It Burn," "Speed Of Light," "Waiting on the Outcome," "Today," and "Use Me." His dynamic stage presence and profound lyricism have earned him the prestigious South African Music Award (SAMA) for Best Pop Album, solidifying his position as an acclaimed artist. With multiple accolades and a global audience, Jesse continues to make a resounding impact in the world of music.
