Southsea Lifestyle – Free Magazine for Southsea, Old Portsmouth, Eastney & Gunwharf Quays

April 2017

Humans are like cats, we sit, often in awkward positions on park benches, or lying on a patch of grass, trying to get maximum exposure to the increasingly warm sun.

It must be one of the first signs of an urban spring, along with people washing their cars or squeezing into last year’s favourite pair of shorts.

Whatever you do to welcome the change of season, music always adds to the occasion – Portsmouth singersongwriter Jerry Williams has been charming audiences since her first performances as a teenager at The Cellars, Eastney. William Sutton talks to Jerry about her growing fame, ambitions and dreams, (p.6 & 7).

Meanwhile another musician, Shakin’ Stevens, who is best known as a platinum-selling rock and roll singer, is coming to Portsmouth Guildhall in May with a more contemplative, blues, roots and classic rock set, and we’ve got five pairs of tickets to giveaway, (p.46).

Enjoy the sunshine and have a happy Easter.
