If pixels could talk, they would speak of her beauty. How her mixture of Japanese, Irish and American heritage merged to create an angelic, almost perfectly symmetrical image embodied by her face, internet viewers could not resist. Yet, her beauty becomes secondary with the enormous talent that she possesses. The hit songs of top –selling artists way ahead of her time were brought to life in ways that were never reached before because of her renditions.
Her road to fame started with winning a contest for Pantene’s Pro-voice competition in the year 2004 where she sang one of her many compositions, Miss Invisible. Included in the prize was being able to work with a professional album producer and performing on – stage alongside top performers. Like any other budding artist, she decided to drop college and pursue her passion for music. Digby started playing at night clubs across her hometown in L.A.. She was later on discovered which made her land a record deal with Disney’s Hollywood Records.
It was during this time that Digby started posting videos of her covers of popular hits from Maroon 5, The Game, Nelly Furtado and even Linkin Park. Yet, much recognition was given to her cover of Rihanna’s phenomenal hit, Umbrella that currently has more than 13 million views to date. She also has more than 160, 000 subscribers on her official Youtube page where she fondly holds contests and continuously does covers of recent hits like that of Ne-Yo’s “Part of the List” from his album, Year of the Gentleman.
Her debut album under Hollywood records, Unfold includes the hits “Say It Again” and “Stupid For You”. Both songs became a favorite of radio stations and her lighter than bright videos flooded music channels and online video streaming sites. Billboard dubs Marie as “…a voice worthy of a solo-pop-acoustic act” upon reviewing her debut album Unfold.
In time for her visit to Philippine shores, Marie Digby releases her second album entitled Breathing Underwater that features the single “Avalanche”. Marie sticks to themes of love and lost and she successfully brings a sentimental mood whilst infusing more upbeat melodies and beats. Her single has also been noticed by popular sitcoms on TV like “The Hills”.
