Colbie Caillat to Play Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 9/26
Caillat released her "Gypsy Heart Side A" EP June 9. The EP features five songs from Caillat's forthcoming fourth full-length studio album "Gypsy Heart" due out later this year, including the new single "Try," a powerful statement about the female body image and the challenges of modern womanhood. In the music video for "Try," Caillat appears sans makeup, along with stars Miranda Lambert, Sheryl Crow, Kelly Osbourne, Sara Bareilles, Natasha Bedingfield and Hayden Panettiere in an act of solidarity.
Raised in Malibu, California, Caillat burst onto the music scene with her hit single "Bubbly." The song generated buzz after Caillat posted it to her MySpace page, garnering thousands of daily hits and attracting a dedicated fan base in the process. Caillat's newfound popularity and wide-ranging appeal promoted Rolling Stone to highlight her as one of the top female artists on the networking site.
Caillat later landed a record deal with Universal Republic, which produced her first multi-platinum selling album, "Coco," in the summer of 2007. She followed the release of "Coco" by touring with music stars like John Mayer, singing alongside Jason Mraz and collaborating with pop star Taylor Swift.
To date, Caillat has been honored with two Grammy Awards and has sold more than six million albums and 10 million singles worldwide. Beyond music, she is spokesperson and supporter for ASPCA, the Surfrider Foundation, Save the Music, Farm Sanctuary, and The Humane Society of the United States.
Caillat will be joined by special guests Alex & Sierra, season 3 winners of Fox's hit show The X Factor.
