SPOTLIGHT: JESSE & JOY
November 14, 2016 • 8:00 pm PST
In the 11 years since Mexico City-born siblings Jesse & Joy started writing and recording together, they’ve released four albums and a string of No. 1 hits, have performed sold-out tours throughout North and South America and received five Latin GRAMMY Awards (and they’re nominated for an additional four at this year’s 17th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards) and a GRAMMY nomination. Jesse & Joy have amassed a passionate and devoted following with more than 1.3 billion views on YouTube, 2.6 million YouTube subscribers, 15.2 million likes on Facebook and 5 million Twitter followers.
The duo were nominated for three 2016 Latin American Music Awards, including Favorite Duo or Group — Pop/Rock, Favorite Album — Pop/Rock (Un Besito Más), Favorite Song — Pop/Rock (Jesse & Joy featuring Alejandro Sanz, “No Soy Una de Esas”), and also performed live on the Latin AMAs. The music video for their current Spanish-language single “Dueles” has amassed more than 39 million views on YouTube and is a Top 5 track in multiple countries including Chile, Mexico, Peru, and more. The duo have also recently released their first English-language single, “Echoes of Love,” produced by Jesse and Fraser T. Smith (Adele, Sam Smith, Cee Lo Green, Ellie Goulding). The track is the follow-up to the hugely successful Spanish-language counterpart, “Ecos de Amor.” Currently in the midst of a U.S. headlining tour, the GRAMMY Museum welcomes Jesse & Joy to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate conversation on their recent Latin GRAMMY nominations and continued international success. The conversation will be followed by a special performance.
