Myth of the Heart is the debut recording from Austin, Texas, singer-songwriter Sahara Smith. She brought her band to Mountain Stage for a live preview of the forthcoming album. Here, she's joined by Will Sexton on guitar and bass, Jake Owen on guitar and Mike Meadows on a "Black Swan drum" (a percussion invention of his own).
World-renowned producer T-Bone Burnett took notice of Smith and brought her into the studio to record Myth of the Heart. Even though he didn't produce her album (Emile Kelman did) Burnett's minimalist style pervades this live performance.
This Mountain Stage performance was originally published July 8, 2010.
