Bring Me the Workhorse

Posted on

While many ambitious singer-songwriters try to emulate the operatic thrills of the late Jeff Buckley, very few have the talent to pull off such theatrics. Enter Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond), whose first LP Bring Me the Workhorse teems with the same sort of virtuosic vocals and dreamy dread that made Buckley’s Grace such a masterstroke. From the ghostly chamber horror ”Something of an End” to the mesmerizing finale, ”Workhorse,” Worden employs sinister strings and ravishing rhythms to heady effect.
