Digney Fignus is a Boston based singer/songwriter. He's back with his latest CD "Last Planet on the Left."

Radio stations all across the US have been spining tracks from the CD, which is also picking up airplay in Europe, and on a number of stations throughout Australia.
Digney arrived on the music scene playing guitar and singing in a three-piece Boston punk band called the SPIKES. Scoring on local radio with songs like "Air Raid" and "Summer Vacation." THE SPIKES performed for underground loft shows that eventually led Digney to run one of the first "Punk" night clubs in Boston, ("Streets" voted Boston's #1 nightclub by the Boston Phoenix). Digney's big break came in when he won the MTV basement tapes with his hit song and video "THE GIRL WITH THE CURIOUS HAND". This led to a follow up release on COLUMBIA RECORDS that Digney co-produced with former CHARTBUSTER and MODERN LOVER, Leroy Radcliffe.
More success came when Digney won the WZLX Boston Anthem contest with his song "BOSTON TOWN". The song is featured on the four-song CD “BOSTON TOWN" which received critical acclaim and was nominated for RECORD OF THE YEAR, by the Mass Country Music Awards Association.

Both "TALK OF THE TOWN" and "TROUBLE ON THE LEVEE" feature performances by legendary drummer Dave Mattacks, (Fairport Convention, Jethro Tull, etc.) The CDs infectious melodies and unique story line have garnered rave reviews all across the country.
