Comfort Cat writes songs and performs in and around New York City, with a ukulele and/or violin. She's lived in the Pacific Northwest, New York, and the United Kingdom, and she enjoys writing compound lists, taking her leash-trained cat on walks, growing plants, drinking coffee, and writing about her life.

“sniff” is a downright beautiful deeply affectionate album made out of pure love.
I like that @catquarks writes songs that are not about things that you've heard 23408 songs about. Like feet reminding you of seashells.— Abigail Welhouse (@welhouse) October 28, 2014

Comfort Cat writes songs and performs in and around New York City, with a ukulele and/or violin. She enjoys taking her leash-trained cat on walks, growing plants, drinking coffee, and writing about her life.
She's originally from the Pacific Northwest, having first moving to New York for college. She has also lived and studied in the United Kingdom on multiple occasions.
While Comfort Cat is committed to music, she makes a living doing a hodgepodge of things, which have included freelance copywriting, web development, delivery, and data entry.
Comfort Cat has many musical influences. The list is long, so when asked this question, she changes her answer depending on who's asking. Some influences include Tiny Tim, the Beatles, CocoRosie, Joanna Newsom, Blossom Dearie, Freddie Mercury, Yoko Ono, Laraaji, Brian Eno, Mike Patton, David Bowie, Brian Wilson, and Bjork. However, that list only includes well-known artists and is not comprehensive.
