Album information

Digby started the recording process in early 2006. She worked with important producers, Dave Bassett (Idina Menzel), Mike Daly (Kid Rock), and Tom Rothrock (James Blunt).

Digby rode the internet video channel to a hit iTunes single, a Gap ad, and a song on Smallville. Digby's homemade videos feature her acoustic interpretations of hits by Rihanna, Linkin Park, and others - "Umbrella" being the most popular - and her debut includes more fully realized versions of those songs alongside Digby's originals.
