One of the most exciting new UK female artists, Jerry Williams, has just revealed her brand new single ‘Boy Oh Boy’, out November 16th, which can be heard below.
The 19-year-old ‘girl next door’ from Portsmouth who’s fresh off the pages of the new special 10-year anniversary issue of Wonderland Magazine, has taken this track from her latest EP ‘Cold Beer’, out now. The teenage songstress is already being compared to the likes of Lilly Allen and Kate Nash.
A self-confessed songwriting addict, Jerry admits “I would happily write songs all day, everyday, forever.” Drawing inspiration from artists such as Vampire Weekend, Slow Club and Coldplay, her life growing up in Portsmouth, and her relationships with boys, she’s already made a huge impact on her local scene, winning The Portsmouth Guide Award for Best Solo Performer Of 2015, and packing out venues across town, including a recent sold-out 300 capacity EP launch show at Tiger Tiger.
There is a freshness to the 19-year-old’s narrative storytelling that is striking a note with everyone that comes into contact with her music. This has already drawn the attention of some big songwriters and Jerry has now penned tracks with Newton Faulkner, Carey Willets from Athlete, Jim Duguid (Paulo Nutini, Alex Clare) and Dan Carey (Miles Kane, Nick Mulvey, Sia).
Live, she already has a string of high profile support slots under her belt, hitting the stage with the likes of Rixton, Maverick Sabre, The Hoosiers, a sold out UK tour with Nathan Sykes (ex-The Wanted) and appearances at this year’s Great Escape and Wilderness Festivals.
Check out ‘Boy Oh Boy’ below and watch every hair follical on your body respond to her beautifully haunting vocals. Pure bliss!
