Autumn has arrived and festival season is a distant memory... Or is it? First Fifty is here to save us from the doom and gloom.
Prepare for some hyphens: Twenty-one-year-old, Portsmouth-born, Indie-Pop singer-songwriter Jerry Williams … warned you.
William’s sound – particularly the music has been likened to The Smiths and The Cure and she has a clever, quirky writing style akin to Taylor Swift. In modern-day music terms, you could say Jerry Williams sound, in parts, has elements of Mahalia, Izzy Bizu and RAYE with a smidgen Lily Allen thrown in there for good measure.
She makes endearing Indie-Pop songs with warm melodies, poetic lyricism and all of her tracks have an almost effortless feel to them.
Jerry Williams has been writing music since she was 12, she also studied classical guitar from a young age. She’s an unsigned artist who has self-funded and released 3 EP’s. Her latest effort “Let’s Just Forget It” won Best Produced Release 2016 at the Unsigned Music Awards.
Jerry has had support from BBC Introducing, Huw Stephens and Jason Kramer among many others. She was featured as a One To Watch for 2016 by BT TV, The Box, 4 Music/Boxfresh and she certainly isn’t letting anyone down, she’s had a huge year.
Her brand new beautifully British track “Grab Life” featured on Spotify’s New Music playlist on November 10th and was raved about on social media.
Aside from the delightful “Grab Life” you also have to check out the streaming sensation (5 million streams on Spotify) “Mother” …
and the gorgeous “Let’s Just Forget It”
