According to the bio posted on her website, Cogan was born on Salt Spring Island, BC in 1982 and “was raised by a family of artists, encouraged to follow the tune in her own head. She became a part of Vancouver’s eclectic music scene at the age of 19, co-producing her 2010 album The Quarry with Jesse Taylor at Nite Prison and collaborating with a multitude of artists participating in Fake Jazz Wednesdays & Her Jazz Noise Collective.
