Malibu native Colbie Calliat's style is thoughful, engaging acoustic pop in tune with Jack Johnson, Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac circa 'Rumours,' which coincindentally, her father, Ken Calliat, co-produced. "A great song," says Caillat, "should lift your heart, warm the soul and make you feel good." Taking her own sound advice, Calliat's debut album 'Coco' is simply crammed full of them. The Kooks (named for the song appearing on David Bowie's 'Hunky Dory') met while attending Brighton Music College in the mid-2000s. Each shared a liking for the Police, the Strokes, the Everly Brothers, and Funkadelic, thus forming the sweet and precocious sounds they have made. Before the end of 2005, the band's 'You Don't Love Me' gave the band its first ever Top 20 hit. Their debut full-length is 'Inside In/Inside Out.'
