Randy Lewis of the LA Times raves about her debut LA performance at the storied Hotel Cafe:

“[Sahara Smith] could hardly have been more effective putting her songs across…She deftly avoids the trap of self-conscious artfulness through her keen eye for self-observation paired with subtle wit: ‘If you forget me in the morning, that’s alright,’ she sang in ‘Are You Lonely,’ adding ’Cause I’ll forget you too.'”

“Warmly framed by atmospheric electric guitar leads, oozing, rumbling bass undercurrents and spare percussion rhythms that illustrated and amplified her evocative scenarios…. her voice hits angelic highs reminiscent of Alison Krauss and Emmylou Harris, and at the lower end, which she tapped only briefly on Tuesday, she brought a rich bluesiness that’s worth further exploration.”
