SAHARA SMITH at Unplugged at the Grove 9-9-10

Finally got to see Sahara in a full show plus her debut record, "Myth of the Heart" is FINALLY out.  Just released and boy, go get it, really good.  She has it all, voice, melody, words, words, words.  A poet.  And her band, stellar.  Jake Owen on lead guitar, Mike Meadows (Porterdavis) on percussion and Will Sexton on bass.
We heard much from the new album and all I can tell you is the last time I heard someone this young write and sing like she does, her name was Joni.  Not trying to be dramatic but this young singer/songwriter is scary talented.
Got a couple of decent videos and here is the link to one of them:

If that doesn't grab you, nothing will.
By the way, her album was produced by T-Bone Burnett.  No kidding.
