How To Be Human
During a recent virtual concert, Chelsea Cutler ’15 performed a private acoustic set for Pomfret students and faculty.
In February, singer, songwriter, producer, and Pomfret alumna Chelsea Cutler ’15 wowed students and faculty with a private acoustic performance, which also included a Q&A session. Cutler performed four songs during the virtual concert: “Crazier Things,” “This is How You Fall in Love,” “Sad Tonight,” and “Your Shirt.”
“When I heard she was going to perform a private concert for Pomfret, I nearly lost my mind,” said Kaitlyn Curley ’22. “I’ve been listening to her for years. I’m a huge fan!”
While still a student at Pomfret, Cutler began posting covers and original songs on SoundCloud, which is how she was ultimately discovered. Her first few original songs, “Wake Up,” “Anything for You,” “Your Shirt,” and “You Make Me,” established a loyal fan base. She left Amherst College in her junior year to pursue a full-time career in music, and has seen remarkable success.
The 24-year-old currently has 13.9 million monthly listeners on Spotify. In 2020, she released her debut studio album, How To Be Human, on Republic Records.
“When she performed her songs, it felt so up-close and personal and real,” Curley said. “It’s just so surreal that someone I admire so much attended the same school as me and was even in GriffTones, like I am now. I feel really fortunate that she took the time to give Pomfret this private concert. She was amazing!”
