Colbie Caillat (born May 28, 1985) is an American pop folk singer and acoustic guitarist from Newbury Park, California, U.S.

Born in Malibu but raised in Newbury Park, California, Caillat had a music producing father growing up but wasn’t inspired to be musical until hearing Lauryn Hill’s performance in the film “Sister Act 2”. Caillat began taking singing lessons and teaching herself how to play the guitar before meeting Mikal Blue who asked Caillat to sing on Techno songs for use a fashion shows through which the pair developed a professional relationship.

Caillat and Blue began collaborating and before long Jason Reeves joined the mix adding his artistic expertise. Caillat posted a number of her recorded songs onto the social media site MySpace but had a very limited response until posting the song “Bubbly”. The song became a hit, pulling in thousands of listens a day and the singer accumulated thousands of followers in no time at all. With over 14 million plays in total with a highly accessible and marketable sound, records labels began courting the singer and she signed to Universal Republic in 2006.

The singer’s debut album “Coco” was released in 2007 and was led by the singles “Bubbly”, “Realize” and “The Little Things”. Caillat supported the release with a tour alongside The Goo Goo Dolls and Lighthouse, before becoming the support act for John Mayer’s 2008 Summer Tour. In addition to these high-profile support slots, Caillat recorded a duet with Jason Mraz entitled “Lucky” and provided back-up vocals and co-wrote on Taylor Swift’s album “Fearless”, which swelled the singer’s fan base in a short space of time.

In 2009 Caillat released her sophomore album entitled “Breakthrough” featured the production and songwriting skills of Jason Reeves and Kara DioGuardi along with guitarist David Becker. The album produced the two singles “Fallin’ for You” and “I Never Told You” and the singer followed the release with a couple of Christmas songs “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” and the Beach Boys song “Merry Christmas, Baby”.

Caillat has subsequently released her third album “All of You” in 2011 and a Christmas album “Christmas in the Sand” featuring collaboration with Brad Paisley, Gavin DeGraw and Justin Young in October 2012. In 2013 the singer announced a new album and released the single “Hold On” and an EP entitled “Gypsy Heart (Side A) appeared in 2014 with the new single “Try”.

The singer has won two Grammy Awards the first as a featured artist on Taylor Swift’s 2010 album “Fearless” and another for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for the song with Jason Mraz “Lucky”.
