My Brightest Diamond is spearheaded by Shara Worden, granddaughter of an Epiphone-playing traveling evangelist, fathered by a National Accordion Champion, and mothered by a classical organist. Having a family of musical wanderers who migrated across the US every few years, the landscape and the musical influences were constantly changing. Spanish tangos, Sunday morning gospel, classical and jazz were the accompaniment to her home life. Her first song was recorded at age three and by age eight she was studying piano and performing in community musical productions. In August ‘06, My Brightest Diamond released their debut, Bring Me The Workhorse, on Asthmatic Kitty Records with songs which distil stories to their most distressing points of contact: a phone call, an injured horse, a dragonfly caught in a spider's web. 2008 saw a second album, A Thousand Shark’s Teeth influenced by artists such as Tricky, composer Maurice Ravel and Tom Waits, in addition to the star exploration themes of Anslem Kiefer’s paintings, the imaginary landscapes of photographer Robert Parke Harrison, films by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and Alice in Wonderland. The songs, whose themes broach intimacy, kisses by moonlight, laundry, lost friendship and more, marry vast instrumentation – marimbas, harps, clarinets, French horns, rabid guitars, vibraphones – to create an unequalled amalgamation of style and colour. The remixers for A Thousand Shark's Teeth - Alfred Brown, DM Stith, Son Lux and Roberto Carlos Lange were each commissioned to create a separate EP of material. Disc 1 Volume 1: Alfred Brown 1.
