Sahara Smith
    Friday March 16, 2012 9:00pm - 9:40pm @ Maggie Mae's Gibson Room (512 Trinity St)

    Sahara Smith is a natural. Or as the Austin Chronicle observes, “She's the real deal all

    Don’t take our word for it. Listen to her debut album on Playing in Traffic Records, Myth
    of the Heart, and you’re bound to agree with the Dallas Morning News that “Smith is a
    revelation.” The disc is hailed as “a gorgeous album for all lovers of carefully chosen words,
    rich imagery and ethereal vocals” by Texas Music magazine and “a richly impressive,
    intensely soulful debut album,” by the Los Angeles Times. All that and more is to be
    savored on Myth of the Heart.

    It bows with the alluring “Thousand Secrets,” which opens a window on the vulnerable
    places we all have, as Smith writes, “For every broken branch there is a mile of fallen
    leaves/But no one knows the river flows a thousand miles deep.” Propulsive churning
    tracks like “Are You Lonely,” “The Real Thing” and “All I Need” make feelings of
    longing and desire palpable, while the up-tempo title song sings about resisting the urge to
    love. Meditative yet kinetic auras grace Smith’s reflections on being lost within love (“Tin
    Man Town”), empathy (“Angel”), mortality (“The World’s On Fire”) and life’s travails
    (the closing cut “Twilight Red,” which Smith wrote at age 13). And such songs as “Train
    Man,” “Midnight Plane” and “Mermaid” embody the notion of poetry in motion with their
    evocative images of travel and places near and far.
