A silky smooth voice and easy going songs have been the cornerstones of Colbie Caillat's success.

From the time she burst onto the scene with 2007's 'Bubbly,' the Malibu, California girl smiles and sings like it's effortless. Hit's like 'Realize,' 'Fallin For You,' and 'Brighter Than The Sun' offer infectious grooves and sound like a person who's very content with how things are going for her.

On her newest single, 'Hold On,' Colbie picks up the beat a little but still sounds as comfortable as a cat lying in the sun.
