Colbie Caillat spent her childhood in Newbury Park, California; the daughter of record producer Ken Caillat, known for his work on Fleetwood Mac’s albums “Rumours” (1977) and “Tusk” (1979). Thus, under the influence of her father, she began attending piano lessons as a child. At the age of 11, she realized that she wanted to be a singer, so she began to take vocal lessons too.

Colbie’s first performance was in sixth grade, when she sang on the school stage. Soon after, she met record producer Mikal Blue, and began to work as a singer at fashion shows. When she was 19 years old, Colbie began to play the acoustic guitar, and recorded her first song. Although she was rejected twice at auditions for the talent TV show “American Idol”, she continued to pursue her musical career, but this time with the help of social media platform MySpace, on which she became one of the top unsigned musicians.

However, Colbie’s professional career really began in 2007, with her debut studio album entitled “Coco”, which became a complete success, as her debut single “Bubbly” reached No. 5 at the US Billboard Hot 100, as well as No. 2 at the Pop 100 charts. The single “Realize” peaked No. 20 at the Hot 100, while another single “The Little Things” reached No. 94 at the Pop 100 chart. These successes increased the size of her net worth by a large margin, but also encouraged her to chase further her career in music.

Thus, in the following year, Colbie recorded the duet “Lucky”, with Jason Mraz, which won a Grammy Award. Later that year, she released the song “Somethin’ Special” for the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, and furthermore her song “Midnight Bottle” became the soundtrack of the soap opera “Três Irmãs”, in which she also appeared as a guest, increasing her net worth. Beside that, she collaborated with Taylor Swift, as she provided background vocals for her song “Breathe”.

She then began to work on her second album, and in 2009 it was released under the title “Breakthrough”, which was also successful, peaking at No 13 on the Billboard 200, and achieving great success with such songs as “I Never Told You” and “Fallin’ For You” among others. Colbie’s next album wasn’t released until 2011, entitled “All Of You”, which included such singles as “I Do” and “Brighter Than The Sun”. Her net worth was certainly rising.

Furthermore, she lined up success after success, releasing the album “Christmas In The Sand” (2012), and then began working on her next album “Gypsy Heart”, which was released in 2014, with the song “Try”, which achieved platinum status in the US, as well as peaking at No. 55 on the Billboard Hot 100. Most recently, she released the album “The Malibu Sessions” in 2016, which will also likely increase her net worth.

In 2013, Colbie co-wrote a song named “We Both Know”, together with Gavin DeGraw, which became the soundtrack for the film “Safe Heaven”. The song was enormously popular, and was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award in the category of Best Song Written for Visual Media.

Regarding her personal life, Colbie Caillat has been dating singer Justin Young since 2009, and they became engaged in 2015.
