Downtown Music Publishing signs singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, whose work includes the 2007 hit ‘Bubbly.’

Downtown Music Publishing has announced a global music publishing agreement with US singer-songwriter, Colbie Caillat, who rose to fame in 2007 with her hit single “Bubbly.” She has received two Grammy Awards and five nominations, with over 15 billion streams worldwide. Her songwriting prowess has seen Caillat collaborate with industry heavyweights such as Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley, Jason Mraz, Sheryl Crow, and Gavin DeGraw.

The deal will see Caillat benefit from Downtown Music Publishing’s global administration service as well as creative sync services, whose recent 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 ad, and Doja Cat’s “Boss Bitch” during the 2023 Super Bowl.

Caillat’s full catalog and all future releases are secured in the deal, including her 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,” says 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, her debut country solo release Along the Way, dropped in October 2023 via her imprint, Blue Jean Baby Records. It was distributed through Downtown Artist & Label Services, who, alongside Caillat’s publishing deal with Downtown Music Publishing, will continue to work with her across distribution on future releases.

“Downtown Music Publishing takes great pride in being able to represent some of the world’s most talented songwriters, with Colbie Caillat one such exceptional talent,” says Jedd Katrancha, CCO of Downtown Music Publishing. “It is an honor to be working alongside Colbie and her team to maximize publishing opportunities across her highly respected and in-demand catalog.”

In August 2023, British pop-rock group The Hoosiers signed a global agreement with Downtown Music Publishing and a distribution deal with Downtown-owned distributor, FUGA, through their imprint, Crab Race Ltd. In June, Downtown Neighbouring Rights signed an international deal with the Miles Davis Estate, which followed a longstanding partnership with Downtown Music Publishing, having represented Davis’ works since 2019.
