Submitted by press on Wed, 09/29/2010 - 10:29 pm

T Bone Burnett went on record to say 22-year-old "Sahara [Smith] is the best young artist I have heard in many years." Of her last show in Hollywood, the LA Times raved, "her voice hits angelic highs reminiscent of Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris."

Her debut 'Myth of the Heart,' overseen by T Bone Burnett and producer Emile Kelman, features many of Burnett's first-call session players, including guitarist Marc Ribot, drummer Jay Bellerose, and bassist Dennis Crouch. It's earned a mass of rave reviews (see below) and available now via Playing in Traffic Records.
