Comfort Cat is a New York City-based singer-songwriter who plays the guitarlele (six-stringed tenor ukulele), backed by Jason Laney on keys and Dan Veksler on bass/guitar. Miracle Jones has described them as “music that simultaneously abrades and soothes the soul” and “punk-by-way-of-the-divine.” Another fan called them “chaos music.”
Comfort Cat writes music to comfort toxic people. If you have ever been The Problem, you might enjoy her songs.
Comfort Cat (known to friends as Cat) has lived in NYC for nearly 15 years, having also studied music in the United Kingdom. She primarily performs with a guitarlele, a six-stringed instrument with the same intervals as a guitar but tuned up by a perfect fourth.
Through songwriting, Comfort Cat seeks to describe direct emotional experiences as they actually feel and not how people try to make sense of them through an armchair psychiatrist lens.
Comfort Cat will not pretend to help you grow, learn, or become a better person. It operates with zero perspective, zero compassion for those that wrong you, even less for those that you’ve wronged, and no room for nuance, until it dies no wiser, no smarter, no closer to any sort of Nirvana than it ever was before. Comfort Cat bestows favor upon people without regard for their morals or bad taste. Comfort Cat may also change its mind for any/no reason, without prior written notice, and adheres to no moral code of man.
Comfort Cat has no preferred pronouns.
Comfort Cat lives in Staten Island with her real cat, Jack. In addition to being a songwriter, she is a teaching artist, whose students refer to her as Ms. Cat.
