On Thursday night, Chelsea Cutler performed for a select group of fans at PUBLIC Arts on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, and it was an incredibly special night. Cutler has had a banner few years, with unbelievable independent success as she started her career, to signing with Republic Records, and now having a debut album on the horizon (which is set to release at the top of 2020).
Her fans know her best for her catchy beats paired with her heartbreaking lyrics that tackle everything from the ebbs and flows of relationships (“Your Shirt,” “The Reason”) to songs rooted in nostalgic places or memories (“310 Bowery”). Cutler’s brief set at PUBLIC arts ran the gamut, showcasing songs like “Your Are Losing Me,” “You Were Good To Me,” “Lonely Alone,” and more. Halfway through her set, she brought out Alexander 23 to perform “Lucky,” which is the newest single off her debut album How To Be Human. Alexander 23 will be joining Cutler on her epic headlining tour next spring (fully equipped with two nearly sold out shows in New York and two sold out nights in Boston), giving fans a taste of what to expect from the tour next year.
While her set was brief, fans ate up every second of it. They soaked in every moment, just as Cutler was. The room was filled with so much love, energy, and adoration between the fans and Cutler, as well as between fans in the audience. The kindness and vulnerability that Cutler exudes through her music is her sure fire ticket to success in the coming year. Her ability to bring a group of people together and allow them to feel safe and seen is incredibly special to witness.
Chelsea Cutler is set to release her debut album How To Be Human in January 2020 via Republic Records. For more information on the album release and her forthcoming world tour, head over to her website.
