The future is bright for chamber rock songstress Shara Nova, who after four years, has finally unleashed what she calls a “love letter album to Detroit.”

Last month, the classically trained vocalist and self-taught multi-instrumentalist released A Million and One, her latest project as My Brightest Diamond. The record finds Nova navigating self-love amid loss, as evidenced by the lead track, “It’s Me on the Dance Floor.” The record comes at a turning point for the artist, as it is her first since overcoming a divorce and moving back to Detroit, a city she says has shaped her in many ways. On Thursday, My Brightest Diamond will be supporting Canadian indie pop band Stars.

My Brightest Diamond will perform at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 6 at Saint Andrew's Hall; 431 E. Congress St., Detroit;; 313-961-8961; Tickets are $29.
