Perri has spent much of the past year on the road celebrating the release of her acclaimed second album "Head Or Heart." In addition to high-profile TV appearances, festival performances, and treks with OneRepublic and Demi Lovato, Perri recently returned from her biggest worldwide headline tour to date, with sold out shows in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
"Human," the acclaimed first single from "Head Or Heart," was certified RIAA platinum for sales now well in excess of 1 million. Additionally, the album features the singles "Burning Gold" and "The Words," not to mention the upbeat fan favorite "Be My Forever," the duet Christina did with Ed Sheeran.
Named iTunes' "Breakthrough Pop Artist of 2011," Perri earned critical applause and an increasingly fervent fan following with her debut, "lovestrong," which was highlighted by the four-times-platinum certified smash "Jar of Hearts."
Two-time Grammy Award-winning artist Caillat released her fourth full-length album "Gypsy Heart" in September. The album immediately landed in the top 20 of Billboard's Top 200 Chart fueled by the strength of her gold-selling single "Try." Co-written by legendary producer and singer-songwriter Babyface, "Try" became one of the biggest performing songs featured as iTunes "Single Of The Week." Quickly amassing nearly 40 million YouTube/VEVO views, the single's inspirational companion video became a global viral sensation and reached the No. 1 spot on the iTunes Video Chart. At radio, that success continued as the song went top 10 at Hot AC.
To date, Caillat has sold over 6 million albums and 10 million singles worldwide. Her breakthrough hit "Bubbly" remains one of the best-selling digital tracks in history, and her multi-platinum debut "COCO" hit No. 5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. Her gold-selling sophomore set "Breakthrough" landed at No. 1. 2011's "All Of You" yielded the gold "I Do" and platinum "Brighter Than The Sun," which enjoyed more than 20 film and television placements.
After two years of writing, Platten would find her first big spark with "Fight Song." Platten is currently touring the U.S. with Andy Grammer, performing a number of songs from her cache, and planning her major label debut with Columbia Records.
