Porch Cat is a queer pop punk band fronted by singer-songwriter Chan Benicki. Through uptempo punk songs, sludgy ballads, and dreamy pop hooks, Benicki writes about queer identity, pain and chronic illness, surviving abuse and assault, and ultimately, love and empowerment.
Benicki grew up writing songs in eastern Washington, and started performing and releasing music as Porch Cat after moving to Bellingham.
While the band initially began as a folk project, their two previous releases, Bad Victim and Bedroom Artist, introduced elements of fuzz guitars and drums. Benicki picked up the bass in lieu of acoustic guitar due to chronic pain, and fell in love with playing. Regardless of style, Porch Cat remains true to their Pacific Northwest roots, combining elements of grunge, punk, riot grrrl, dream pop, and indie rock. 
Benicki has multiple chronic illnesses, including Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, Narcolepsy with Cataplexy, PTSD, and PMDD.
Porch Cat is: Chan Barraza (bass/guitar/vox), Emily Ayden (drums/guitar/vox)
