To add to the uniqueness of my artist, I wanted to use an original font for my digipak. So instead of using default fonts on Photoshop, I decided to look online for some fonts. Websites like Dafont are excellent for situations like this as they have an abundance of unique fonts added almost every day.
The font I chose for my digipak is called "Glass Houses", I found this under the "Funky" tab of their website. I like this font as it is similar to the effect I added previously onto my digipak with the wind effect - it's disrupted.
Here's what my artist's name looks like in the typography chosen. It's really similar to fonts of the 80's which is another reason why I chose this font.

When you double click the text layer, a pop-up with a variety of manipulating tools appears. When you click gradient overlay, you're able to select either default gradient settings of create a new one. I went through and really liked the blue, red yellow default preset.
Here's the final look after the gradient tool.
This is the finished product.
