Born in Canada, and growing up in such varied places as Tanzania (East Africa), Halifax, Quebec and Vanuatu (The South Pacific), Cozmic Cat aka Paula Burrows absorbed International rhythms from a travelling family and became obsessed with music at an early age. She later moved to Philadelphia, USA and became immersed in the vibrant music scene there for over 9 years.

This knowledge, passion and skill led to several award wins from various Philadelphia Press for Best DJ, Best DJ (Mixer), and Best DJ (Audience Choice and Editors Choice). Armed with a vintage Korg Triton Synth and a desire to release 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.
