Jerry Williams’s deep and reflective narrative songwriting sets her apart in the sea of singer-songwriters. There’s a freshness in the tracks, which explore the coming-of-age topics that we’ve all been through, including everything from relationship angst to her teenage years Portsmouth. Lyrically advance, Williams creates vivid imagery through both her lyrics and swirling, emotional sound, and transports you away from reality and into her world. Creating an emotion-fuelled, soul-bearing sound, Williams’ new EP “Let’s Just Forget It” demonstrates her unique voice and a sweet yet powerful delivery. Her vocal and musical skills are incredibly advanced for someone so young – not surprising though, as at the age of 12 she had already starting writing songs; she’s now selling-out shows around the south coast and is embarking on an much-anticipated UK headline tour this October.
“I see your smile like you’ve woken up to snow” she soulfully sings in the track “Let’s Just Forget It”, taken from her EP of the same name. A collaboration with Dan Brown, who co-wrote and produced the track, the track is an emotional rollercoaster, combining Williams’ trademark narrative emotions with swirling guitar riffs and smooth production. The video, shot on West Wittering beach by James Roberts Sharp, is a dark and heartfelt, but emotionally uplifting. Shot in one take, the video shows Williams dancing through the rain, running across the beach, splashing in puddles and expressing the raw emotions “Let’s Just Forget It” makes her realise while the dawn breaks over the sand. It’s a carefully-crafted, expertly-produced expression of emotion – something that Jerry Williams’ has perfected the art of.
Jerry Williams “Let’s Just Forget It EP” is out 30th September.
