Colbie Caillat

I am going to add a new category, since I already have a separate category for Elvis, and dedicate it to songs by Colbie Caillat.

This is a singer/songwriter from Malibu, California. Her first hit was Bubbly in 2007 at the tender age of 21. Her duet with Jason Mraz, Lucky, earned her a Grammy award. According to her website bio, her father Ken Caillat was a sound engineer who had helped produce two Fleetwood Mac albums: Rumours and Tusk. So it’s safe to say that her family’s involvement in the music industry influenced her early on. It’s no surprise to learn that she often performs Fleetwood Mac’s Go Your Own Way during her concerts.

Recently, Colbie has been romantically linked to Hawaiian musician Jason Kawika Young, the lead guitarist in her band. She is a self-professed sufferer of stage fright. And she appeared in her video for her newest released hit song, Try, completely stripped of make-up. Since the video has gone “viral” as they say, she has become the unofficial spokesperson for inner beauty.

On Friday, May 8 Colbie Caillat will be playing in Toronto at the Sherton Center Toronto Hotel – Grand Ballroom. You can order tickets from here: MTV Artists.

Here are the words to the song Try:
