The Artists of Lilith Fair Series: Colbie Caillat Exclusive
Are there three items you can’t leave home without when you go out on the road?
My camera, my laptop and my water color paint set!
So many amazing things have happened to you since your break-out hit song, “Bubbly." Tell us one of your favorites!
Wow, there are so many things! Well...I got to meet the President of the United States which is pretty amazing! There was an incredible show in Berlin, Germany on the 4th of July and the stage we played on was floating on water in the middle of a lake. It was a festival show in the day time and the audience was watching us play while they were swimming in the water. It was so cool! Also, touring with John Mayer, writing with Jason Mraz, Taylor Swift, Kara Dioguardi, recording a song with The Wailers and winning a Grammy Award!
How have you been affected by Proposition 8 in your state of California? Do you agree or disagree?
I think that it is a shame not to acknowledge the love two people share who want to spend the rest of their lives together. They should be granted all the rights that married couples have.
You will be playing at Lilith Fair 2010 this summer. How did the coveted invitation make you feel?
It is exciting to be part of a great day of music, but even more gratifying is to have my music acknowledged and included in a historical event. It’s been several years since there has been a Lilith Fair and this is history in the making. I was lucky enough to have been able to see the last Lilith tour when I was younger. I also really appreciate that the sale of tickets benefits women’s causes in every market, and that they are both local and national charities.
