My Brightest Diamond at Rock & Roll Hotel | Saturday September 27


“Along with her often-gorgeous singing, Ms. Worden presents an ambitious series of arrangements…the songs glow with rumination…”

The New York Times

My Brightest Diamond’s new EP, None More Than You, was released July 15 on Asthmatic Kitty Recordsand can now be heard in full exclusively at Consequence of Sound. Already receiving widespread acclaim, The New York Times praises, “Shara Worden, the operatically trained singer at the core of My Brightest Diamond, has a feeling for both the grandeur and the grain, building every sweeping gesture in her music out of a swarm of small details,” while Consequence of Sound asserts, “…the music is as always funneled into the ambitious, layered arrangements of My Brightest Diamond.” 

Following the EP release, Worden’s forthcoming full-length album, This is My Hand, was released September 16 on Asthmatic Kitty Records. The album features ten new songs, including the first single “Pressure,” which recently premiered at NPR Music and can now be heard/shared here. Of the song, NPR Music praises, “…a stirring song powered by an incredible drumline…one of the most powerful and dramatic voices of the past decade,” while Stereogum proclaims, “…‘Pressure’ is something to be reckoned with. Filled with an army of percussive sounds from big drums to twinkling bells along with shrieking brass and crushing synths, it’s a huge production, but it all sounds small compared to Worden’s operatic voice.”

In celebration of the release, Worden will embark on a worldwide tour this fall, including her show at Rock & Roll Hotel this Saturday, September 27. See below for details.

This Is My Hand was recorded in Berlin, New York, L.A. and Worden’s re-adopted hometown of Detroit with producer Zac Rae. Of her inspiration behind the album, Worden comments, “The genesis of the new album was looking at the changes that have happened in music over my career, and trying to reevaluate what it meant to me in the first place: ‘what is the value of music’ is essentially the question. In the States, the marching band is something that is done in school, so it still represents something inclusive, something that anyone can learn. I loved the communal quality and the way that drums and horns travel in large three-dimensional spaces.”
