Her breakthrough hit “Bubbly” remains "one of the best- selling digital tracks in history" and her multi-platinum debut COCO hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart upon release, while her sophomore set Breakthrough landed at #1.

She?s also played sold out venues everywhere alongside everybody from John Mayer to Sheryl Crow. Beyond music, she?s an avowed spokesperson and supporter for ASPCA, the Surfrider Foundation, Save The Music, Farm Sanctuary, and The Humane Society of the United States.
For the first time in her decade-long career, Colbie Caillat has made an album exactly the way she wanted. It’s also the first for her newly minted label, PlummyLou Records, distributed by RED.
Eschewing traditional recording studios, Caillat recorded The Malibu Sessions, out Oct. 7, over a two-month period in a rented house in Southern California’s beautiful Broad Beach.
The result is a sun-kissed collection of breezy, buoyant, yet often vulnerable, songs, with timeless harmonies, catchy melodies and a harmonious vibe that recalls classic ‘70s rock. For additional information visit www.colbiecaillat.com.
