Wednesday Rewind
Sahara Smith's late night debut and the Sword's odyssey
DAILY Music  December 1, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...As the host points out, Sahara Smith made her network television debut last Wednesday on the Late Show with David Letterman. On this take of “The Real Thing,” the Wimberley songstress sounds like a Texas version of Jewel, with a dress so tight it appears to prevent her from moving (or maybe she's just trying to hide that tattoo on her right shoulder)...."

The Real Thing
Sahara Smith's smoke signals
DAILY Music  November 22, 2010, by Audra Schroeder
"...Wimberley songbird Sahara Smith's T Bone Burnett-produced debut, Myth of the Heart, came out this past summer, but it's also the perfect fall soundtrack. Isn't that what makes a good album - that it can change with the seasons? This week, you've got two chances to catch her...."

No matter if it's an unknown young singer like 17-year-old Sahara Smith in a little club on South Lamar (the "unknown" part won't last long in her case), no matter if it's in the room of an unknown poet destined to remain unknown, no matter – there are acts of creation, however desperate, that cannot be stopped.

Guitar mercenaries Marc Ribot and Greg Leisz rode in for the Myth after o' brother T Bone Burnett, but Smith's gifts are made in Austin..."

Music Story  March 19, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Sahara Smith could share a dorm room with Jarosz were she also enrolled at New England Conservatory. Instead, the equally young and roots-prescient Smith has been at the T Bone camp in Los Angeles, preparing a parallel song up in her head space..."

Letters at 3AM: Who's That Girl?
Singer-songwriter Joanna Newsom is an inimitable genius
Columns  November 5, 2010, by Michael Ventura
"...So when a male friend raves of a female singer, one is wary of what psychology calls "projection." But when a female friend says, "You gotta listen to this gal," revelation may be at hand. A friend in her 60s insisted I hear Sahara Smith, a friend in her 20s burned me a Jolie Holland disc, a friend in her 40s sent me Eilen Jewell's CD, a friend in her 50s raved of Elizabeth Cook, and a friend in her 20s indicated, charmingly, that if I didn't listen hard to Joanna Newsom I was but a likable, aging fool, slipping daily beneath her level of consciousness...."

"...11pm, Ale House It's been a busy year for San Francisco's Chuck Prophet. He released the fabulous Soap and Water, his first for Yep Roc; made a boisterous appearance on Late Night With David Letterman; co-wrote songs for Alejandro Escovedo's upcoming album; and raised a ruckus on the Internet with a download-only re-creation of Waylon Jennings' "Dreaming My Dreams." – Jim Caligiuri Sahara Smith..."

The 2010-11 Austin Music Awards crown South by Southwest's Saturday night
Music Story  March 25, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Whereas last year's launching pad for Mother Falcon occurred in the gloom of a wintery final Festival night, a balmy Saturday evening this SXSW was met inside the Austin Music Hall with a tropically blue stage set, burgeoning audience, and the sanctuary of homegrown bonhomie. Sahara Smith, a Southwestern warming trend at the 2010 AMAs, poured even thicker folk honey this time around, taking to her now Central Austin home a trio of plaques (Best Female Vocals, Best Folk, and Best Songwriter) and talking about being shy while performing with all the poise of Emmylou Harris at the Austin Convention Center's Radio Day Stage on Thursday..."

A Thanksgiving feast with Speak, A Welch Family Affair, and Ornette Coleman
Music Column  November 26, 2010, by Austin Powell
"...Acorns might not fall far from his family tree, but that doesn't necessarily mean that country-beat songsmith Kevin Welch pushed his son Dustin and daughter Savannah down Music Row. "That really wasn't my idea," laughs Welch (see "C&W Maverick Kevin Welch: Square Peg Escapes Round Hole," Aug..."

Putting on the gloves for round three of Fun Fun Fun Fest, Dangerous Toys go platinum, and Okkervil River stands for a fire demon
Music Column  November 7, 2008, by Austin Powell
"...Austin's Sahara Smith is about halfway through the recording of her debut album with T Bone Burnett at his Santa Monica, Calif., studio. The 20-year-old songstress caught the famed Fort Worth native/producer's attention earlier this year with a batch of demos and is currently looking for a record label to underwrite the remainder of the sessions..."

Mom Jeans, Sailor Poon, Calliope Musicals, Zettajoule, Sahara Smith, Falcon
Music Review  January 7, 2016, by Libby Webster
"...Falcon's sweet, sleepy acoustic set opened, featuring truly excellent whistling and vocals that would make Karen O look up from the bar. Also wielding only an acoustic guitar, Sahara Smith followed with a stark set of folk, her voice balancing warble and tenacity – an arresting belt calling to mind Presley and Orbison..."

The Sound of the City
Celebrating the release of 'Austin Music Vol. 10'
DAILY Music  February 23, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...Pressed for the first time on vinyl (how progressive is that?!), Volume 10 could pass as a sampler of last year's Austin Music Awards, featuring contributions from Sahara Smith, Bright Light Social Hour, the Marshall Ford Swing Band, and Mother Falcon. Even more impressive is the nabbing of Afrobeat combo Ocote Soul Sounds and our rarest export, Bill Callahan (view full tracklist below)...."
