Abstract

My Brightest Diamond is the project of singer–songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Shara Nova. The band has released four studio albums, 2006’s Bring Me the Workhorse, 2008’s A Thousand Shark’s Teeth, 2011’s All Things Will Unwind, and 2014’s This Is My Hand, along with remix albums Tear It Down and Shark Remixes, Volumes 1-4. Nova has also recorded and performed with The Decemberists (as “The Queen” on their album Hazards of Love) and Sufjan Stevens’ albums Illinois (Sufjan Stevens album) and The Age of Adz.

My Brightest Diamond mixes elements of chamber music and rock. While living in New York City, Nova began writing her own material, which had one foot in her classical training and the other in the avant rock she was discovering. She became as involved in the world of underground rock as she was in the realms of classical music, becoming inspired by the likes of Antony and the Johnsons and Nina Nastasia and their intimate performances at venues such as Tonic, The Living Room, and the Knitting Factory.[1] (read the complete article at Wikipedia)
