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

Inspired by the artists and DJs she met in Philly and NYC, she began managing street teams and promoting for Sony Music, Giant Step 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, Acid Jazz, Boogie and Funk from some of Philly's deepest crate diggers and Record Stores.

Armed with a vintage Korg Triton Synth and a burning desire to release a track on vinyl, she connected with two local Philly producers Lorne Peart and Jon Gil to release a series of vinyl E.P's under the name From Philly With Love which earned them a spot on Urb Magazine's “Next 100”.
