She belongs to the nationality American, and her ethnicity is mixed as she is of French, English and German descent.

Breakthrough, the title of Colbie Caillat's sophomore release (set for August), could just as aptly describe her 2007 debut, Coco, which featured the fresh-faced singer's smash hit "Bubbly," went platinum, and garnered attention from the likes of John Mayer (who invited her on his 2008 summer tour) and Taylor Swift (with whom she cowrote "Breathe").
We caught up with Caillat to chat about the new record, pulling pranks on Mayer, and the benefits of dating friends. I was going through a really rough time for a while—being in the spotlight was strange for me.
Now looking back, I think it's the coolest thing ever, but at the time, they were just my parents' friends. I love reggae music, but I also love the purpose of the songs he writes and the style of the music—it takes your worries away and makes you feel good, and I think that's what music is about. I fell in love with her voice and have tried to sound like her my whole life. We didn't do pranks like that, but at the end of our show at the end of our tour, he came out and surprised me and sang on "Realize," and the whole crowd went nuts!
We would go see their concerts and go out on their boat in Malibu and meet them in Hawaii and it was just a normal thing with family friends. So when I write songs, I want them to make people feel that same way. I was shaking because I couldn't believe that was happening. I grew up watching SNL, and I always was a fan of Jason Mraz, and then I became friends with him when we wrote a song.
We went out on a date and I realized that there was no one else in the room.
And then we're going to go surfing and he almost hits me over the head with the surfboard.
And he also has this really funny fantasy dream where he's dressed all "Guido" in white shoes and his chest is showing and I'm in this ridiculous bathing suit with huge hair and we're dancing at a DJ party on the beach. Your father, Ken Caillat, coproduced the seminal Fleetwood Mac albums Rumours and Tusk.
So then I surprised him and went out and sang "Gravity" with him at the end of his show. When we got a chance to perform it on SNL, it was just an unreal moment in my lifetime.
