Colbie Caillat is known for such hits at “Bubbly,” “Realize,” “The Little Things,” and “Feelings Show.” Her simple soft voice and catchy rhythms transcend what is traditionally classified as pop music. Aside from singing, she also plays acoustic folk guitar.
Caillat won the Grammy Award for best pop collaboration with vocals with Jason Mraz for their collaboration on the song, “Lucky.” Caillat was born in California in 1985 and grew up in Malibu and Ventura County. She grew up surrounded by music with her father, Ken Caillat, who is most notably remembered for co-production and engineer credits on Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” among several other albums.
Last time around, Colbie Caillat was feeling "Bubbly," and the entire pop world seemed to want a sip. But this time, effervescence flirts with explosiveness. For her sophomore album, Breakthrough, Colbie has shaken up her sound, bringing in a wider array of producers and players, and significantly picking up the tempo at times from her debut effort’s signature ballads. So keep an eye on those carbonation levels: champagne corks may fly.
