Born in Canada, and growing up in such varied places as Tanzania (East Africa) and Vanuatu (The South Pacific), Cozmic Cat aka Paula Burrows absorbed global rhythms from a traveling family and became obsessed with music at an early age.

Inspired by the artists and DJs she met, she began managing street teams and promoting for Sony Music, Giant Step Records, Om records and many more, all the while throwing her own events with DJs, percussionists and live musicians. Coz learned about House music, Jazz, Disco, Soul, Rare Groove and Funk from some of Philly's deepest crate diggers.
