Biography

Colbie Caillat welcomes change. Being a Gemini might have something to do with it, or it could just be her innate predilection for progression. Either way, the Grammy Award-winning, multiplatinum songstress’s fourth album, Gypsy Heart, and EP Gypsy Heart Side A, see her artistically evolve yet again.

“I like change,” she affirms. “I have a hard time picking one ... Read more in Amazon's Colbie Caillat Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat is one of the most celebrated artists to emerge from the growing talent pool of digitally-savvy self-launched artists, whose rise to prominence as the #1 unsigned artist on the popular myspace site has been largely due to her refreshing sense of understatement.

With no marketing push and only the power of the music behind her, Caillat became a sensation on the social networking site. Rolling Stone highlighted her as one of the top female artists on myspace. Ultimately, her number of friends swelled to more than 100,000. Her profile has been visited over 3 million times, and she has more than l0 million plays. She's currently averaging 50,000 + a day.

The songs on Caillat's debut album COCO mirror the Malibu-born Caillat's low-key, refreshing style. Armed with her acoustic guitar and her dusky vocals, she evokes the same gentle, yet spirited style of her musical influences John Mayer, Bob Marley, Lauryn Hill and The Weepies. The laid-back tempo of Hawaii, where she spent twice annual family vacations, is echoed in the music.

"She's the real thing," stated Monte Lipman, President of Universal Republic Records. "From her unique songwriting skills to her powerful but understated presence, Colbie has connected to millions of music lovers simply through the power of her music.

Amazon.com

Even without MySpace, singer/songwriter Colbie Caillat is sure to have found an audience, but her oft-accessed page accelerated the process, mostly on the strength of the effervescent "Bubbly." On her first full-length album, the California native conjures up clear skies and warm breezes. Not that the lyrics revolve around her stomping grounds of Malibu and Ventura County, but her mellow melodies sound like products of those places (co-writer Jason Reeves' ukulele playing reinforces the beach music impression). Instead, Caillat sings about love in all its guises, as on "Capri," a tribute to a mother-to-be. The daughter of audio engineer Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac's Rumours), who provides production assistance, Colbie combines acoustic pop, light jazz, and blue-eyed soul on Coco. Despite her young age--22 at the time of its release--the record seems likely to attract an older audience, although her sunny singing manages to sound centered and spirited at the same time. Coco doesn't offer anything startlingly new, but its relaxing vibe is hard to resist. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

5.0 out of 5 stars The Girl From Malibu August 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Who is Colbie Caillat? From the CD pix, she looks like a real pretty version of Jennifer Aniston, wholesome, all American girl. There's a mention of her being from MySpaceMalibu, so you expect light and breezy, but it's actually pretty mature and well thought out lyrics that gets your attention, even with the soothing acoustic guitar, the lyrics are pretty serious like "Midnight Bottle" about subduing one's loneliness with a drink(she was 22 at the recording of this CD) or moving away from a bad relationship in "Battle."
The first track "Oxygen" sets the tone of this album with her deep, smokey Rickie Lee Jones voice. With modest beginings, Colbie can be the next big thing, her understated grace and inate talent as a musician might be key to her success. She kinda reminds one of a female version of Jack Johnson or Donovan Frankenritter. So folks looking for something alternative to listen to, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing and consistently good July 27, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I listened to the free single of the week, Bubbly I received through iTunes and liked it. Went and listened to samples of the other songs on the album and immediately knew I had to have the entire album.

Saw reviews that called her the female Jack Johnson. I find I like Coco better than any Johnson album I've heard. While he as a few strong hits, he has a lot of songs I find myself bored with and forwarding through. I don't have the desire to forward through any of the songs on Coco. Consistenly good and very listenable. Give this one a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Album of the Summer!! July 21, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Finally...a listenable CD!! After wasting a ton of money on other summer releases only to be miserably disappointed, I stumbled upon this CD at Target and blindly took a leap of faith. I'm really glad I did. This is the perfect summer album. A mix of semi-tropical sounding, pleasantly lyrical songs that work on a number of different levels. I'm not one to sit and listen to all the words of songs to detect their meanings, I just know what sounds good to me, so I can't comment on the "depth" of Colbie's musicality. But I do know that I had a summer seafood dinner party at my house on the Oregon Coast last night and had this album playing in the background and it set the mood perfectly. Almost everyone there wanted to know who it was and where I got it. That alone is proof that we have finally discovered the ultimate CD for the Summer of 2007.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anti-climax, but not bad. July 24, 2007
By Sugar
Format:Audio CD
I've followed Colbie's budding career via MySpace this past year, watching with great interest how she became the # 1 unsigned artist on that site, was put under pro management, then was signed to a major label, and now sees her debut record launch, complete with offical website where one can buy Colbie T-shirts, stickers, etc. It's a study in how you can make the public believe that an artist has come from virtually nowhere when in fact her rise has been pretty carefully planned out. Nothing wrong with career planning, but please, marketing/PR people, don't make it look like something it's not.

Her dad Ken Caillat helped produce this CD - he just happens to be the guy who helped produce one of the alltime bestselling albums: Fleetwood Mac's classic "Rumours" as well as other F. Mac albums. So I'm guessing he's got a pretty neat Rolodex of friends in the record biz if ya get my drift.

Having said that - before I get accused of being utterly unfair: Colbie does have talent - she has a sweet mellow voice, albeit not one that stands out from many other female singers in the acoustic folk/soul vein. She does seem genuinely nice and unpretentious - big bonus points for that in a biz where there are far too many divas.

For the past year, several songs from what is now her debut album "Coco" (her nickname) could be heard on her My Space page. "Bubbly" became the big hit - "the single" as it is known in the industry. "Battle" was always my personal favorite and I still think it's by far the stand-out in the batch of 12 tracks. "The Little Things" and "Magic" have been big faves with her My Space fans as well and they are sweet tunes which wisely put Colbie's sunny voice in the spotlight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colbie is a Sweetheart.............. November 12, 2008
Format:Audio CD
...but I have to admit to some mixed feelings. Don't get me wrong; it's a great album, and one that makes us feel good...some singers uplift, some depress, and some merely inspire respect...any of those can get five stars, but I prefer to be happy, and Colbie can always supply that. She makes us feel good even when she has to touch feel bad subjects like "Midnight Bottle". What's more, she not only has a sexy voice, but you can actually understand the lyrics...You Go, Girl!!

As to specifics...the first 12 cuts need no comment...we've heard them for the past year...they've built Colbie's fan following, and they're great. The final 8 tracks give us some welcome new material, and, though she didn't write it all herself, it has a bit more of a personal touch, with Colbie's heart a bit more exposed [though nothing even approaching Carly Simon's heart-on sleeve]. Listen to #13 "Tell Him" and the following "Brand New Me"--she's opening herself just a bit, and her music rocks [just a touch] harder than the previous offering. "Somethin' Special", made for the Olympics, is indeed. Bob Marley's "Turn Your Lights Down Low" is a live performance, and it quite well done..I don't care for much of Marley's work, but I like this. The record closes with alternative versions of "Magic" and the BIG HIT "Bubbly"...I really like what she did with "Magic", but will confess to a preference for the original on "Bubbly". "Tell Him", and the Marley number are listed as "live", but no obtrusive audience noise. Thank you.

Colbie is pretty girl with a fine voice; she's still a work in progress, still spreading her wings ["Hoy Me Voy" and "Turn..."]. She should only get better. Beautifully presented album...great pictures...great sound and instrumental support. Five Stars. OK.
