Colbie Marie Caillat is an American guitarist, pop singer and songwriter.  Her father was also in the music business and co-produced “Rumours” (1977) and “Tusk” (1979) albums by Fleetwood Mac.   She has sold over six million albums and over 10 million singles worldwide.

Life and career

Childhood and youth

She was born May 28, 1985 in Malibu, California, and grew up in Newbury Park, California.   As a child Caillat took piano lessons, but lacked considerable inspiration until the age of 11, when she witnessed Lauryn Hill’s performance in Sister Act 2.  She decided to be a singer and began taking vocal lessons; she was in sixth grade when she performed onstage for the first time.

Music producer Mikal Blue hired her to sing on techno songs that were used at fashion shows.  Caillat started playing the acoustic guitar at age 19 and in the same year she recorded her first song.  She auditioned for American Idol twice getting rejected at the pre-audition stage the first time and at her second audition she was rejected once again singing her own original song, “Bubbly.”  Caillat, however, was grateful at the judges’ decision, saying “I was shy.  I was nervous.  I didn’t look the greatest.  I wasn’t ready for it yet.  I was glad, when I auditioned, that they said no.”

2007–2008: Coco

Caillat released her debut album “Coco” in 2007, named after her nick name given to her by her parents. Her debut single “Bubbly” managed to reach at number 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 2 on the Pop 100.  Two other singles followed suit with “Realize” reaching #20 on the Hot 100 and “The Little Things” getting to #94, at Pop 100.

Caillat and Jason Mraz recorded a duet called “Lucky,” in 2008 for his album, “We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things.”   She released a song and video called “Somethin’ Special” for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics in August 2008.  Caillat also sang on “You” by Schiller and appeared in the music video.  Caillat has also been a part of the music tem in the soundtrack of the movie “Imagine That.”

In October 2008 she also played herself in the Brazilian soap opera “Três Irmãs” and her song “Midnight Bottle” was also included in the soundtrack of the soap opera. She also co-wrote and provided background vocals for Taylor Swift’s song “Breathe,” on her album “Fearless” that won Album of the Year.

2009–2010: Breakthrough

Caillat’s second album was released in August 2009.  Most of the album “Breakthrough” was co-written by Jason Reeves and featured guitarist David Becker on two tracks. Becker has also worked previously with Caillat’s father Ken.  Facing a writer’s block during the recording sessions, she sought help from her friends Jason Reeves and Kara DioGuardi.  They rented a beach house in Hawaii for three weeks and wrote songs.  Caillat released “Fallin’ for You,” her first single from the album in June and the second single, “I Never Told You,” in February 2010.  She released two Christmas songs, the Beach Boys song “Merry Christmas, Baby” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” for the 2009 holiday season.

Caillat got recognition from BMI as songwriter of the year.  In December 2010, she had the honor of performing at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo, Norway.

2011–Present: All of You

She released her third album “All of You,” on July 12, 2011.  The first single, “I Do” was released in February. The second single, “Brighter Than the Sun,” was released in June.
