Rock,Classical,Indie,Pop

My Brightest Diamond is a chamber pop band spearheaded by singer/songwriter Shara Worden. After earning an opera degree at the University of North Texas, she moved to New York City to simultaneously continue her opera studies and pursue her songwriting ambitions, releasing two albums with her band Awry. After the breakup of Awry, Shara assembled a coterie of musicians to accompany her with bass and drums, strings, wine glasses and wind chimes, and thus the sound of My Brightest Diamond was formed. Shara’s Mancini-esque string arrangements laced with dramatic guitars and punk rock drums define the Diamond sound. On stage she channels the vocal theatrics of Jeff Buckley, the soulful seductiveness of Nina Simone, and the gothic pop of Portishead. The band's second album is 'A Thousand Shark's Teeth,' released on Asthmatic Kitty Records.
