We are an acoustic indie duo from the busy city of Johannesburg, South Africa. Being very in love with music, we write our own songs and cover the favourites as we draw from our influences, which are from a plethora of artists such as “Us the Duo”, “Ed Sheeran”, “John Legend”, “John Mayer” and “The Civil Wars” just to name a few.

I spent the last week on Carnival Pride and saw Jesse and Kylie perform on the first night & immediately fell in love with them & their music. I went to see them play every chance I got. You can feel the love between them & they projected that love out during every performance. I ended the last night of the cruise jamming out with them. The perfect way to end my vacation. Thanks again, Jesse & Kylie! ♥️♥️♥️

Meet the Act

We are Jesse and Kylie Martin. Born and raised in different places but found each other in Johannesburg, South Africa. Our love for music is what united us and after a few years of dating, we got married and immediately jumped onto a cruise ship. We spent the first 3 years of our married life as cruise ship musicians. But then when 2020 hit, much like everyone else, we got affected by Rona and her effects on the travel and entertainment industry.
When we got back to land after 3 months of being held on a ship, we tried to make sense of life on land and moved to the small coastal town of Jef ...
