Downtown Music Publishing (DMP) today announces a global music publishing agreement with multi-platinum, GRAMMY-winning US singer-songwriter, Colbie Caillat.

Caillat shot to fame in 2007 with her 3x Platinum debut album ‘Coco’,  which hit #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart upon release and included hit singles ‘Bubbly’ – which is certified 6x platinum – and 2x platinum ‘Realize’.  Over the course of her exceptional career, the acclaimed singer-songwriter has been the recipient of two GRAMMY Awards and five GRAMMY nominations, boasting over 15 billion streams worldwide and eight number-one/Top Ten singles across her lauded catalog.

Caillat has collaborated with some of the industry’s biggest heavyweights, including Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow, Jason Mraz, Brad Paisley and Gavin DeGraw to name only a few. Following her GRAMMY-winning duet with Jason Mraz, ‘Lucky’, in 2008, Caillat’ released her second studio album Breakthrough, which became the singer’s first album to debut at #1 on the Billboard album chart.

Caillat will benefit from Downtown Music Publishing’s global administration service as well as creative sync services, whose recent high-profile placements include Bruce Hornsby’s 1988 track ‘The Show Goes On’ on Netflix’s The Bear, Air’s ‘Kelly Watch The Stars’ on Chanel’s Christmas advert and Doja Cat’s ‘Boss Bitch’ synced during 2023’s Super Bowl. The deal will cover Caillat’s full catalog and all future releases, including debut album, ‘Coco’, multi-platinum singles, ‘Bubbly’, ‘Realize’ and ‘Lucky’ and her debut country solo album ‘Along The Way’ featuring collaboration “I’ll Be Here” with Sheryl Crow.

“My experience working with Downtown over the past year has been amazing and I’m grateful it will now also include their publishing team,” said Caillat‘Their creativity and passion for artists and songwriters goes above and beyond. I look forward to this exciting new chapter of working alongside the best in the business.” 

Colbie Caillat’s latest album ‘Along The Way’ – released in October 2023 via her own imprint Blue Jean Baby Records – was distributed via Downtown Artist & Label Services who, alongside Caillat’s publishing deal with Downtown Music Publishing, will continue to work with Caillat and her team across distribution on future releases. Downtown Artist & Label Services has had a significant stream of recent success across its distribution and marketing offering, including seeing client, Luis R Conriquez hitting the number one spot on Spotify’s debut global album chart with ‘Corridos Bélicos, Vol IV’.

Since the launch of Downtown Music in August 2022, the group’s expanded service offering across publishing, distribution, marketing services, UGC and neighbouring rights has unified considerably, with a series of clients electing to partner with multiple Downtown divisions.

In June 2023, Downtown Neighbouring Rights signed an international deal with the Estate of Miles Davis, which followed a longstanding partnership with Downtown Music Publishing who has represented Davis’ coveted works since 2019.
