My first thoughts when it comes to Jerry Williams and her music is infectiously fun, vibrant, nostalgic and extremely talented. Her voice, music and style remind me of simpler times, fun times, good times. This young Briton has accomplished what s many take years to achieve, she has carved her niche and from here on can only rise as a star. Her songs so fresh and catchy that they strike a chord with you from the very first note. My favourites are “I’m Not in Love With You” and “Mother.”

Jerry Williams has revealed the video for her brand-new track ‘I’m Not In Love With You’, taken from her latest EP Let’s Just Forget It, which is out now.
Jerry says of both the song and the video, “I’m Not In Love With You’ is about falling completely out of ‘love’ with someone and realising you weren’t a match made in heaven. The video shows this in a house party setting, similar to the night it was written about, where we’re having a good time with friends and sharing mutual feelings of not seeing each other that way anymore.”
As well as performing at BST Hyde Park with Take That last summer, and support slots with LANY, Barnes Courtney, MAGIC & Nathan Sykes, Jerry embarked on her first ever headline tour, which included sold-out shows in both London & Portsmouth. She also recently a session for VEVO DSCVR, which has already surpassed 100,000 views.
“The Portsmouth teen is dedicated to perfection and she’s close to the mark. This isn’t just another instance of overblown bubble-gum pop, Jerry Williams is the music-fan’s pop star.” – Gigwise
“There’s a sweetness to her delivery that belies that often-personal nature of her lyrics, a song writing style that cuts a little deeper.” – Clash
“Adroitly executed by a young woman who ‘would happily write songs all day, everyday, forever’. No complaints here if they’re all of this standard.” – The Guardian
“…a carefully-crafted, expertly-produced expression of emotion – something that Jerry Williams has perfected the art of” – Wonderland
