The award winning singer songwriter, whose refreshing style and mesmerizing vocals captured a global following the past two years thanks to her breakout Universal Republic debut album COCO, is working with an impressive array of producers, songwriters, and artists on the new album, Grammy winning songsmiths such as Rick Nowels (Madonna, Nelly Furtado, Dido and others), Shanks (Michelle Branch, Celine Dion and others), and acclaimed songwriter and 2009 American Idol judge, Kara DioGuardi (Celine Dion, Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood). The charismatic artist even set up a hi-octane 'writing camp' in Hawaii last year, inviting familiar collaborators Jason Reeves and Mikal Blue (who co-produced?co-wrote her debut smash) and Kara DioGuardi to the creative free-for-all. Caillat and her team wrote 50 songs for the album and recorded 20. She played the music for a small group of fans to help her determine the final 12-15 that will make the album.
Billboard named Colbie their "Rising Star" and she was nominated for a host of honors, including an American Music Award and Teen Choice Awards, winning 6 coveted 2008 WORF Awards (handed out by a survey of online critics and bloggers), including Female Icon Of The Year, and selected for VH1's "You Oughta Know."
