- GRAMMY Live
Colbie Caillat grew up in Malibu, Calif., watching her dad, GRAMMY-winning producer Ken Caillat (Fleetwood Mac, Rumours), turn the knobs on rock hits while also soaking up the folk, R&B and pop grooves that would eventually define her own work. In 2006 Caillat took advantage of the growing popularity of Myspace to promote some of her unfinished songs, including the hook-laden "Bubbly." The track created buzz among pop fans and record labels and in 2007 Universal Republic signed Caillat. "Bubbly" peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and propelled Caillat's debut album, 2007's Coco, to No. 5 on the Billboard 200. Caillat co-wrote or wrote every track on the album and repeated this effort on her sophomore release, 2009's Breakthrough, which peaked at No. 1 on the strength of the hits "Fallin' For You" and "I Never Told You." That same year she garnered her first GRAMMY nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album for Breakthrough and won two GRAMMYs, including Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals for "Lucky," a duet with Jason Mraz, and as a co-writer and background vocalist on "Breathe," a track featured on Taylor Swift's Album Of The Year Fearless.
Caillat's subsequent projects include 2011's All Of You (No. 6) and a holiday album, 2012's Christmas In The Sand (No. 41).
