She debuted in 2007 with her album Coco, which included hit singles “Bubbly”, “Realize”, and “The Little Things”. In 2008, she recorded a duet with Jason Mraz, “Lucky”, which won a Grammy.

Caillat started her singing debut at an early age (11) with special performances around her house. Within weeks she ventured out to talent shows and school performances. Her parents, who would call her “little bird,” would wake up in the early morning to find her singing her heart out. With the help of her parents, she was charmed into the idea that she had singing potential and began lessons with a vocal coach.

Caillat grew up in Malibu, California, United States and other cities in Ventura County. As a child, she was surrounded by music. Her father, Ken Caillat, is most notably remembered for Co-Production and Engineer credits on Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours,” among others. Every sound of Colbie’s soulful style unfolds a story of her many travels through life.
