The Hapa Tour ft. Meiko & Marie Digby

Buzzworthy singer-songwriter Meiko, who is one-quarter Japanese on her maternal grandmother’s side, was born and raised in rural Georgia. She got her start in 2007 at the venerable Los Angeles venue The Hotel Café (where she also worked as a bartender). Since then she’s released three critically-acclaimed albums and numerous EPs through MySpace/DGC, Concord Records and Universal Japan. Meiko has built a massive tour following in the U.S. performing as a headliner and also as support for artists including Jewel, KT Tunstall, Eric Hutchinson, Mat Kearney and others, and she’s also toured Europe and Asia multiple times. Live performances on late night TV shows including Conan, Jay Leno and Carson Daly further fanned the flames, and her hit song “Stuck On You” was played on radio across the U.S. and even reached #1 on the radio charts in Japan.

Born to a Japanese mother and an Irish-American father, Marié Digby gained international notoriety in 2007 when her cover video of Rhianna’s “Umbrella” went viral on YouTube - it has amassed over 22 million plays to date. Her 2008 debut album Unfold, produced by Tom Rothrock (James Blunt, Elliott Smith, Beck) was released through Hollywood Records and has sold over 400,000 copies worldwide. Marié has spent an extensive amount of time promoting her music and touring throughout Asia. In 2009 she released a collection of Japanese cover songs (recorded completely in Japanese), and her 2011 Your Love album has reached Gold status in Korea. Marié is in the process of recording new material in Los Angeles – her legion of super-fans, calling themselves “Digbyholics”, can’t wait for the new music!
