T Bone Burnett's Favorite New Discovery Sahara Smith Finishes Album, Announces Tour Dates

Sahara [Smith] is the best young artist I have heard in many years," says T Bone Burnett. Got your interest? Read on: Located 28 miles southwest of Austin, Wimberley, TX, boasts natural springs and gravesites of early pioneers. It's also the hometown of Sahara Smith - a stunning, young singer-songwriter who started performing at age 12, and first garnered national attention at age 15 when she placed second in a contest for young songwriters on A Prairie Home Companion.

Now 21, Sahara is poised for a breakout with June tour dates supporting Mason Jennings, and a just-completed album of original songs overseen by T Bone Burnett and producer Emile Kelman.

The album is called 'Myth of the Heart' and features many of Burnett's first-call session players, including drummer Jay Bellerose, guitarist Marc Ribot, and bassist Dennis Crouch. More details on the album will be revealed soon.
