My Brightest Diamond
Not many people can front a rock band, sing Górecki’s Third Symphony, lead a marching band processional down the streets of the Sundance film festival and perform in a baroque opera of their own composing all in a month’s time. But Shara Worden can. Her multi-faceted career as My Brightest Diamond, which began with an acclaimed independent rock record, has reflected her journey into the world of performing arts. She has collaborated with a variety of artists, including David Byrne, Sufjan Stevens, Laurie Anderson, Fat Boy Slim, Bon Iver and The Blind Boys of Alabama. My Brightest Diamond has been praised by NPR Music as “one of the most powerful and dramatic voices of the past decade.” This is her SMF debut.
