For Sarah Cobb, music was always there but the permission wasn’t.
This week we spoke with our longtime friend Sarah Cobb. Sarah went from growing up in Arkansas to become a successful graphic designer in D.C. and New York City, and then…she started over. Sarah became a full time musician in her 30s, named ESS SEE.
I think one of the most interesting aspects of our conversation with Sarah was how music was always calling her, and how different voices in her life moved her closer or farther from that call. And then one day, Sarah was told:
“Money will grow back; but time won’t.”
She experienced so many little moments of mentorship, rebellion, freedom, support, risk and – of course – burlesque. Even though we’ve known Sarah for over seven years, we never connected all the dots of her story and it was so fun and beautiful to do that in one sitting – which is probably one of the greatest gifts of this podcast. Enjoy!

I listened to this on a plane to Savannah, GA and I think it has been my favorite one so far. I liked the realness that I found in the voice of Ess See. I also liked to find new music and so that was an unexpected bonus (yet I feel like I have heard her music before, anyway it is good). I felt like she was very authentic and straight forward, while showing such a humility and understanding that she doesn’t have it all put together. I think that is what I might have connected most with, it was a discussion in the talk about how newer generations don’t feel like we have all the answers and that we are barely getting by – because someone will stop us and ask us if we even know what we are doing – and then we will have to say NO. But at the same time, that I feel is a better place to be and be authentic and learning to do it the best we can rather then when I see older generations not knowing what they are doing but not able to admit that it is a scary, unknown, but beautiful place to be in. I connected to that. Great podcast.
