The multi-talented Shara Worden, aka My Brightest Diamond, has led a bright and varied career since releasing her debut record in 2006. Not everyone 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 the space of a month, but Worden’s endless creativity seemingly knows no bounds.
Alongside these albums, Shara has found the time to collaborate with the likes of David Byrne, Bon Iver and Laurie Anderson, as well as touring with the Decemberists and a whole lot more. It’s difficult to comprehend how she has managed to fit it all in as well as release 4 albums in this time, but they are testament to her awesome talent.
If you didn’t know her already, it’s quite possible you are already of aware of her work without even knowing it. Either way, make yourself acquainted with My Brightest Diamond at Field Day Sunday.Listen
