Let's Ride

Now you already have a reason to love My Brightest Diamond. Singer Shara Worden is Sufjan Stevens and the Illinoisemakers' head cheerleader. Not reason enough? Well how about her music is AMAZING. Worden, a University of North Texas graduate, has been through several incarnations in the forms of bands, solo efforts, etc. Her newest band, My Brightest Diamond, is working on finishing an album called Bring Me the Workhorse!This first track here is featured on the new Asthmatic Kitty compilation Mews Too which you can purchase here.
This song really reminds me of early Tori Amos, think Little Earthquakes, except a lot more powerful and awing.

If you're gonna be in Austin Wednesday March 15, My Brightest Diamond will be playing Emo's Annex with Page France, Castanets, Wooden Wand, and Why? (really great line-up! Don't miss it)

Great stuff, she reminds me a little of Regina Spektor. I hadn't heard of the band before, so thanks!
