British indie-pop musician Jerry Williams released a new single and EP, both titled “Gameshow” this past International Women’s Day. This four-collection EP serves as a personal celebration of her work and an exciting peek into what’s to come in the near future.
The single “Gameshow” details, the current, 23-year-old Jerry Williams losing a close family member to cancer. “It was the first person who had passed away who I had known and I wrote a few songs about it,” Williams explained in a Youtube video. “Just knowing that she was gone, broke my heart. It felt so unfair and cruel.”
The up-and-coming artist tries to connect with fans through a variety of personal videos she posts on the increasingly popular video-sharing platform, Youtube. In some videos, she explains how she came up with the ideas for a majority of her singles including “David At The Bar” and most recently, “Gameshow.”
The EP Gameshow includes the four singles “Gameshow”. “David At The Bar”. “Left and Right”, and “Grab Life”. Williams uses her energetic, youthful voice to take listeners through her experiences in life and keeps the songs playing in their minds all day.
“When listeners, especially young girls, tell me I’ve inspired them to pick up a guitar or follow their dreams and that my lyrics connect with them, I feel like I want to burst, it’s the best feeling ever,” Williams says.
There will be huge surprises coming later this year as Williams has confirmed the release of her debut album and will be announcing North American tour dates soon. Listen to the EP below to get yourself ready for their releases.
