My Brightest Diamond is the brainchild of captivating singer and guitarist Shara Worden, who “moves effortlessly between the worlds of indie rock and contemporary classical music” (The New York Times). This former child evangelist, operatically-trained singer, and one-time Sufjan Stevens protégé has released five albums in the past decade under the My Brightest Diamond moniker, all the while collaborating on the side with musical pathbreakers like David Byrne, Laurie Anderson, and The Decemberists. My Brightest Diamond builds angular art-rock around Worden’s unmistakable voice, an arresting combination that is even more striking when heard live. For this show, they will take the stage at Motorco, embracing the intimate rock club setting. They’ll perform songs from across their catalog, including brand new material. Pitchfork wrote that their 2014 album This Is My Hand “works on a visceral level, conjuring Worden’s intended image of tribal, fireside collaboration through a rich diversity of texture, detail, and tone.”
