Ready for a nice swift kick in the feels today, fam?

No?

Too damn bad.

Portsmouth singer-songwriter Jerry Williams released a track late last week about an experience she had striking up a conversation with a stranger at a bar. “It’s one of the most honest songs I’ve ever written,” Williams reveals, “I just felt this weird, bizarre connection to this man.” In one of the more eye watering simple yet painfully intimate stories I’ve heard in song form, she went on to share the gist of their conversation. “He said, ‘If you write a song about me I promise I’ll give up drink’”, she explains, “and I said, ‘You should give up drink anyway, but I will’. The next day this song was written, I haven’t found him to tell him but I would love to find him.” She also revealed that didn’t even bother to change his name for the song, so wherever David is, here’s hoping he’s doing a lot better than he was that day. 💖

For those heading to SXSW you’ll be able to catch Williams at the conference. More updates on all of that coming soon.
