My Brightest Diamond is spearheaded by Shara Worden, granddaughter of an Epiphone-playing traveling evangelist and daughter of a national accordion champion father and a classical organist mother. 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.
