Flower-Petally and Silvery Folk-Pop from JERRY WILLIAMS — Live in Hoxton

We got to see the singer/songwriter Jerry Williams from Portsmouth UK  (girl, not boy) at Hoxton this week at the wonderful Zigfrid von Underbelly venue.

Her pop melodies and gently  galvanizing vocals have already gained her honours including Winner Best Solo Artist for the Portsmouth Guide Awards 2014.

Her ‘Cold Beer’ was a song cleverly ridded with useful tips.

The voice was flower-petally, friendly and silvery as noon-time moonlight.

The song had a dizzying pace. With a giddy beat, and it offered up a funky lining.

At Hoxton we also loved ‘Tyre Kicker’ which was about the kind of boy that waste a girl’s time. Mothers tell daughters to avoid boys like this!

The song had wonderfully smart sub-texts.  Jerry’s voice was incredibly cute. But, although the song seemed honey coated — we got the feelin’ that this girl was getting serious.

Bolt From The Blue’ was softer, sweeter. The vocal range was magnificent.

All-in-all Jerry’s songs seem to be all about smoothing out the rough edges of relationships.

Alliances  between genders seem jagged to her.

And her songs, all delivered with flourish, enthusiasm, and honesty — were almost always ‘designed’ to soften borders…

To somehow move the invisible lines that dissect between boys & girls.

At Hoxton, Jerry’s magical songs captured our hearts…

Perfect folk-pop with angelic vocals, catchy melodies and lots of hidden meanings…
