Melbourne band Seagull have been announced as the main supports for My Brightest Diamond’s imminent Australian tour. My Brightest Diamond (Shara Worden) return to Australia this May as part of Vivid LIVE, and will also perform a sideshow in Melbourne.
As impressive as her list of recent collaborators, Shara Worden’s voice and arresting live performances have left audiences thunderstruck from the Sydney Opera House to Lincoln Center to the House of Blues. She’s performed under the experimental-pop moniker My Brightest Diamond for the last seven years, and counts Bryce Dessner (The National), Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and each of The Decemberists among friends and fans. After moving to New York by way of Moscow, Worden recorded three albums before joining the ranks of Sufjan Stevens ‘Illinoisemakers’.
Worden’s latest offering, ‘All Things Will Unwind’, draws inspiration from the motor city itself – her current home, Detroit. More folk inspired than much of her recent work the new album addresses the juxtaposition of life and death, class and race, pantries and politics—as heard through the mesmerizing lullaby of a new mother. A re-issue of ‘All Things Will Unwind’ is available now in celebration of the tour.
