On Wednesday, November 24, one of America’s most talented emerging artists, Sahara Smith, will make her late night TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman (11:35pm/10:35c). Smith, whose breakthrough debut album ‘Myth of the Heart’ was overseen by T Bone Burnett and producer Emile Kelman, will perform her sultry, smoky first single, “The Real Thing.”

At just 22-years-old, the now Austin-based “rising talent” (LA Times) has already generated incredible buzz around country. This performance marks her first national appearance after two successful tours. Watch the music video for “The Real Thing”:


‘Myth of the Heart’ features many of Burnett’s first-call session players, including guitarist Marc Ribot, drummer Jay Bellerose, and bassist Dennis Crouch.

In January, Smith will release her second single “Are You Lonely” and announce her third national tour. Stay tuned for updates.

“Her voice hits angelic highs reminiscent of Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris.” – LA Times

“Smith’s voice [has] the finesse of a mythical creature.” – Venus Zine

“The 21-year-old Austin, Texas-based singer-songwriter’s debut album invokes lazy summer nights and sweaty slow dancing. A must!” – Glamour

“Smith’s ethereal pipes pull you in, and her way with words keeps you there.” – American Songwriter

“The striking, lanky redhead exudes confidence and grace before she even opens her mouth, but the real allure comes from her vocals.” – Seventeen

  1. Saw Sahara and her band on Letterman and was completely blown away. I’d never heard of her until until her Leterman appearence. Ran right out and bought the CD. Train Man makes me think she should duet with Chris Issak.
