Sahara Smith Stops By Folk & Beyond

Thursday, July 7, 2011 5-7 pm (edt)
WTJU 91.1 FM/Streaming at WTJU.net

Tune in this Thursday, when singer/songwriter Sahara Smith, in town for a performance at Cville Coffee, pays a visit to Aer Stephen on Folk & Beyond.  Below is a recent performance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

"Texas singer-songwriter Sahara Smith creates Cinemascope-like wide-screen portraits of romantic passion, loneliness and unrequited love in her richly impressive, intensely soulful debut album." - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"Now 21, her "Myth of the Heart" is getting a royal send-off, shepherded by producer T-Bone Burnett and fed by years of critical rapture." - WALL STREET JOURNAL

"A hybrid of folk, Americana, country and bluegrass, "Myth of the Heart" makes good on Smith's promise. Melodic and often heartbreaking, it's an assured debut, an elaborately painted canvas anchored by Smith's poetic songwriting and otherworldly voice. And all from a 21-year-old" - AUSTIN AMERICAN-STATESMAN
