Colbie Caillat

A great song, says Colbie Caillat, should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good. Taking her own sound advice, “Coco”, the debut album by the 22 year-old Californian singer-songwriter is simply crammed full of them. In an age when marketing has been elevated above content and so many songs are written and produced to a pre-ordained formula, Caillat comes as a welcome breath of fresh air.

A great song, says Colbie Caillat, should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good. Taking her own sound advice, “Coco”, the debut album by the 22 year-old Californian singer-songwriter is simply crammed full of them. In an age when marketing has been elevated above content and so many songs are written and produced to a pre-ordained formula, Caillat comes as a welcome breath of fresh air. Records these days seem to fall into two categories. The vast majority tend to contain one or two good tracks which you download to your computer so that you never have to listen to the rest of the album again. Far more rare are those that demand to be listened to from start to finish, with every song in perfect symmetry. Think of the kind of vintage, organically-crafted albums that Carole King or Joni Mitchell used to make. Thankfully, it’s a tradition that is being kept alive today by the likes of Norah Jones, Jack Johnson - and now Colbie Caillat. “If you listen to an album like Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, every song has its place,” she says. “If you took one away you’d spoil the balance of the entire record. That’s the kind of album I wanted to make. It wouldn’t feel right to have my name on a record that was just a few good tracks and then lots of filler.. The reference to Fleetwood Mac is revealing. Caillat grew up in the idyllic clime of Malibu, California with music all around her. Her father, Ken Caillat, co-produced Fleetwood Mac’s “Rumours” and “Tusk” albums and later ran his own record label. As a child she recalls the likes of Mick Fleetwood and John McVie being around. “Of course I’ve learned a lot from them. You’d be a fool not to,” she says. Yet she is totally her own woman.
