I accepted a MySpace friend request from Colbie Caillat about three & a half years ago. I promote my chords and lyrics website on my MySpace account, so I get a lot of friend requests from bands and artists.
She was an unsigned artist then, but had already had a huge number of listeners to the songs featured on her MySpace page. She has a great voice, and the songs even back then were polished and professional, so I was telling anyone who would listen that she was going to be 'BIG!'.
I've posted chords and lyrics for the brilliant "Bubbly", which had over 22 million plays on her MySpace page before taking the US charts by storm and hitting the #1 single spot in May 2007, and also chords and lyrics for "Realize", which was also a top 20 hit from the debut album "Coco".
I have now worked out my interpretation of her latest single "Fallin' for You", released in June 2009, and which went straight into the US charts at #12. Still puzzling as to why this success isn't mirrored in the UK and Europe, maybe it's just a matter of time.
For those who are familiar with these songs, and would like to attempt playing them, I have worked out fairly easy to play versions which you can reach at the links below:
Colbie Caillat - "Bubbly" chords and lyrics.
Colbie Caillat - "Realize" chords and lyrics.
Colbie Caillat - "Fallin' For You" chords and lyrics.
If you're not familiar with the songs, you can check them out at these links:

You can buy her great new album "Breakthrough", or her brilliant first album "Coco", featuring "Bubbly" and her other singles at CD Universe - Colbie Caillat music page
Colbie's official website is at http://www.colbiecaillatmusic.com/ Her world renowned MySpace page is at http://www.myspace.com/colbiecaillat - this is a 'must visit' page!!!
P.S. - In case you're wondering, my latest tip for the next band to make it big via MySpace is a Canadian rock band recently re-invented as "Moeraes Fate" and previously known as "Dame", now gigging and recording as "Moeraes Fate" - check out their new & old MySpace pages at http://www.myspace.com/moeraesfateband and http://www.myspace.com/dameband Moeraes Fate are a fantastic 3 piece all-girl rock band who are destined for greatness. You heard it here first!
Enjoy your music!
