Unfold is the debut solo album by singer/songwriter Marié Digby. The album features the singles "Umbrella" (a cover of the Rihanna hit), "Say It Again" and "Stupid for You", and was released on April 8, 2008 in the United States via Hollywood Records. The album debuted at #29 on the Billboard 200 with 18,000 copies sold in its first week.

Album information[edit]

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.
