Colbie Caillat is admired for her dusky vocals and acoustic guitar. The release of her newest album, All of You, hit stores on May 24, 2011. Caillat is recognized for her homespun music and continues to resonate with listeners and win new fans. Little more than a year after the release of her nearly double platinum debut album, CoCo, Caillat has quickly made an enduring impact. USA Today declared the California girl a vital part of “a new wave of troubadours luring fans of all ages into a peaceful, easy feeling.” The national newspaper puts her in the company of other platinum plus artists such as Sara Bareilles, Jack Johnson and duet partner Jason Mraz.
Caillat is a constant fixture on the road touring the U.S., Europe, Australia and Asia. She has alternated between headlining her own sold-out concerts and opening for artists such as John Mayer, one of her major influences. Caillat’s newest album promises to reflect the amazing journey she continues to take as a young woman and an increasingly accomplished artist.
