She performs classic jazz repertoire by Billie Holiday, Betty Carter, and Sarah Vaughan and cites current artists such as Feist, Tigran Hamasyan, St. Vincent, and Becca Stevens as her main influences. Coffing hybridizes traditional and progressive concepts to deliver a fresh, singular sound that is all her own.

Her father brought her into the studio at a young age which led to singing background vocals for Film & TV scores and records including vocals for a TV theme song performed by Chaka Khan.
Currently residing and performing in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Coffing works as an active vocalist, composer, guitarist and educator. She has worked as a sideman for several diverse projects from singing backup for “Naked Lunch”, a Steely Dan Cover band, to performing with Denton based folk group “Many Voices.”
