Dobson comes from a musical family. Her father, Smith Dobson (Smith Weed Dobson IV, 1947–2001) was a pianist who recorded with Mark Murphy and played regularly with vibist Bobby Hutcherson. Her mother Gail is also a singer, and her brother Smith (Smith Weed Dobson V) is a drummer and vibraphonist. The entire family performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 1991, when Sasha was twelve.
