For the first time in her decade-long career, the Grammy Award-winning, mltiplatinum-selling singer-songwriter, Colbie Caillat, has made an album exactly the way she wanted. Colbie, a renowned beach lover, recorded The Malibu Sessions over a two-month period in a rented house in Southern California’s beautiful Broad Beach.
Caillat recorded The Malibu Sessions in 2013, but her then label, Republic Records, wanted her to go in a different direction. She temporarily shelved The Malibu Sessions and released 2014’s Gypsy Heart, which spawned the hit single, “Try,” and its video which had drawn more than 64 million views.
But Caillat knew that despite appreciating the tremendous success she and Republic had
experienced together since her 2007 debut Coco through massive hits like “Bubbly,” “Realize,” “Fallin’ For You,” and “Brighter Than The Sun,” she was ready to helm her own label, PlummyLou, which takes its name from two beloved family dogs.
She is, in essence, taking the Broad Beach house on the road. As this new chapter begins, Caillat remains grateful for the experiences that have brought her to this place of renewal and a clear vision for what lies ahead for her and her millions of listeners. “I’m not trying to be in competition with whatever the biggest pop song is at the moment,” she says. “I’m just trying to put music out there that my fans like to listen to.”
