A lot has changed for Chelsea Cutler in a year. The 20-year old singer, songwriter, producer has come a long way from recording songs in her bedroom as she gets ready to release her debut EP.
Chelsea started playing music at a very early age (she learned piano, guitar, cello, and drums by the time she was 10), but it wasn't until high school that she found a lane for her own sound as an artist. Around the time emerging electronic artists like Kygo and Odesza were coming to the forefront, she was inspired to take these new sounds and turn them acoustic.
She began uploading unique acoustic covers to Soundcloud, where she'd blend a medley of these songs (along with many others), carried by her dreamy voice which has the ability to grab the listener immediately. The covers quickly accumulated hundreds of thousands of streams and caught the attention of artists, blogs, and labels. Shortly after, she wrote and recorded her first original song "Wake Up" in her bedroom, which also showcased her inapt writing ability and ultimately landed her a deal with Ultra Records.
"Your Shirt" is the first single off her fully self-written and self-produced debut EP, coming this Spring. Chelsea explains, "The song is about that moment after a breakup when you wake up in an empty bed and it all hits you that it's really over. Im excited to lead with it because I think it really represents my growth as an artist from both the writing and the production."
In addition to her own artist project, Chelsea has recently lent her vocals and writing on songs for Adventure Club, Chet Porter, and Kidswaste. She will also be featured upcoming singles for Louis The Child EP, ayokay, and Quinn XCII.
