Philip Glass tour dates
Classically-trained singer from My Brightest Diamond whose vocal style falls somewhere between Kate Bush and Bjork.
'My Brightest Diamond front-woman Shara Worden has the classically trained vocal equipment for the opera but chooses to mix ambient indie-rock and Cocteau Twins-style goth' (Isthmus)
'Guitarist and acclaimed composer Shara Worden blends striking, quasi-classical sounds with a love of lo-fi rock (PJ Harvey, Breeders). Here she plays a one-off special with a string quartet.' (Time Out London)
'Enigmatic songs from My Brightest Diamond; its leader, Shara Worden, sang with velvety richness as she dispensed stark riffs and elusive memories' (The New York Times).
