Sahara Smith opened for Los Lonely Boys at Antone’s this past Thursday.  Smart, talented, beautiful… what more could you ask for?  Sahara is a refreshing presence on stage, her sophisticated songwriting abilities belie her young age, and it sure doesn’t hurt that she has an all star team behind her, too.  She is backed by some of Austin’s finest musicians – Jake Owen on guitar, Will Sexton on bass and guitar, and Mike Meadows on drums and percussion.  She is managed by Kevin Wommack, was just signed to High Road Touring, and to top it off T. Bone Burnett is producing her debut album which will be released in August.  She’ll be opening for Mason Jennings on some select nationwide dates this summer and fall, so be sure and go check her out when she passes through your town.
