My Brightest Diamond

Rock, Classical, Indie, Pop
My Brightest Diamond is a chamber pop band spearheaded by singer/songwriter Shara Worden. After earning an opera degree at the University of North Texas, she moved to New York City to simultaneously continue her opera studies and pursue her songwriting ambitions, releasing two albums with her band Awry. After the breakup of Awry, Shara assembled a coterie of musicians to accompany her with bass and drums, strings, wine glasses and wind chimes, and thus the sound of My Brightest Diamond was formed. Shara’s Mancini-esque string arrangements laced with dramatic guitars and punk rock drums define the Diamond sound. On stage she channels the vocal theatrics of Jeff Buckley, the soulful seductiveness of Nina Simone, and the gothic pop of Portishead. The band's second album is 'A Thousand Shark's Teeth,' released on Asthmatic Kitty Records.

Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds

Rock, R&B/Soul, Funk
Sister Sparrow and The Dirty Birds is a nine-piece powerhouse from Brooklyn, formed in 2008, that delivers a blend of gut-busting soul, earthy rock, and New Orleans-inspired beats. Their newest effort is 'Pound of Dirt,' an album title taken from an old American proverb, "You gotta eat a pound of dirt before you die," which exemplifies their gritty philosophy. Says frontwoman Arleigh Kincheloe, "That lyric sums up our new record...which is how we’ve always wanted to present ourselves to the world.”

The Suffers

Rock, R&B/Soul
The Suffers are an 8-piece band from Houston who are redefining the sound of Gulf Coast soul, intertwining elements of classic American soul with rock'n'roll. Both sonically and visually arresting, the large ensemble packs each position of the rhythm section and horn section with a level of talent and taste that provides the perfect foundation for singer Kam Franklin’s massive voice. The band’s sincerity and emotion are laid bare in their music, which has garnered an audience so broad and varied that they may prove to be the panacea for a jaded and stratified live music scene.
