ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Sasha Dobson grew up in Santa Cruz, CA. Her father Smith Dobson was one of the Bay Area’s most influential and in-demand pianists, her mom a well-known singer and her brother an accomplished drummer.
By the time she was 12, Sasha was performing with the entire family at the Monterey Jazz Festival. She moved to Brooklyn at 17 and quickly assimilated into the NYC jazz scene, releasing 2005’s The Darkling Thrush, recorded with The Chris Byars Octet, and Modern Romance (2006). The latter, which won praise from TIME Magazine, was produced by Jesse Harris.
Dobson’s album, Aquarius (2013), was recorded with guitarist/producer Joel Hamilton (Black Keys, Tom Waits, Sparklehorse) and hailed by MAGNET as “raw and compelling.” She and her band performed at Farm Aid 2013 and Dobson opened for Willie Nelson on a series of early 2014 dates after which she released her most recent project Into the Trees (2014) which was a continuation of her work with Joel Hamilton featuring both original songs and covers.
After playing together live since 2008, Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones, and Catherine Popper formed the group Puss n Boots and took their talents to the studio. Their debut album No Fools, No Fun was released July 2014. Not many artists have successfully transitioned from jazz to country as the three artists who made names for themselves solo continued to combine their trio of musical talent.
