Singer-songwriter Kelly Zutrau offers advice to aspiring musicians

Kelly Zutrau meets with students after her guest talk at HCC.

Kelly Zutrau, lead singer and songwriter for the indie-pop band Wet, visited HCC today as part of the Music Department's weekly series of free concerts and guest speakers.

Zutrau talked about her evolution from art student to singer, offered songwriting tips, advice about the music industry, answered questions, and played a snippet of the band's most popular song, "Don't Wanna Be Your Girl," the first she ever wrote.

Zutrau and her bandmates lived in Hadley while recording their debut studio album, "Don't You," released in January 2016 by Columbia Records.

While she was living in the area she took voice lessons from HCC adjunct vocal instructor Sarah Clay, of Florence.
