First you guys submitted your questions for BJ Penn...

Then we collected um for Shane Victorino...

So... like before, gah-on and post any questions you may have for the beautiful songbird in the comment area below and I'll try to get them answered for ya!

    Good morning everyone! Congrats, Ed, on landing the interview! You going be able for concentrate during the interview, or what?! Nah, j/k.

    Here's my questions:

  7. hemajang:

    Colbie Caillat? who dat? Out of my element here with current singers but she does look like a cross between Jennifer Aniston and Cat Toth. Part-time Kauai native? Ask her to explain dat...grew up in Kauai for part of the time?


  8. rayboyjr:

    ... hmmm ... I enjoy Colbie Caillat music ... but had no idea it was her ... definitely my type of music ... and part-time Kaui native ... another thing I did not realize ...

    ... here's my questions ...

    ... Where did she grow up, and who were her musical influences? ...

    ... Her music has a laid-back feel like music from Hawaii. Does she know of or ever heard the local Hawaii music? Any influences from Hawaii? ...

    ... Local musician, Jack Johnson's musical style seems to be in sync with her style. Any thoughts on a collaboration with him? ...


  9. frankie:

    I love the harmonies in "Magic." Does she have any more collaborations planned?

    I looooove the color matty! You one uke/guitar playa?


  15. mcat:

    aww... lucky! :) love colbie caillat!

    my favorite song is "magic" & the duet she did w/ jason mraz "lucky". i got her new album & her songs are just as good as the first cd. love her latest single - "falling for you"...

    i'm curious on how much she visits HI & if she'll ever do a concert here? what other musician would she love to work with?


  16. snow:

    eh, ed... congrats on scoring an interview with colbie callet! i really like "bubbly" - it's so light - and "lucky."

    my question for her would be: how does (spending time in) hawaii influence her music?


  17. tita leerz:

    I don't know who she is! What can I ask? Ask her to pose for a photo for one of your Where in the World Wednesdays....

    HIJACK....can I take this opportunity to make you feel old? UH IT announces last week that they will be retiring UHUNIX2 soon. LOL...RIP UNIX2!


  18. NEO:

    Wow, Colbie Caillat, first off, you're beautiful... I love your voice... secondly, where do you find most of the inspiration for your songs? Now on to Ed's questions...

    Haven't yet DL'ed all of Breakthrough.
    Fallin' For You is probably my favorite from Breakthrough, and Bubbly from Coco.
    Overall I like Fallin' For You best... because it's about that feeling you get when you know that you're with the right person, no matter what others think or say... But you question whether that person really is the right one... and try to play it cool by "hidin' what I'm feelin'...

    NEO


  19. skycastles:

    @Ed - Thanks! Should I also send over the bebs question too? Nah, I'll refrain this one time. :lol:


  20. World Wide Ed:

    * 15.mcat:
    i'm curious on how much she visits HI & if she'll ever do a concert here?

    Oooh, that would be of interest to me too! Actually, she came a few times, but not really for an official concert. Hopefully, she'll sell out the Blaisdell (or Aloha Stadium?> :) ) one day...

    * 16.snow:
    my question for her would be: how does (spending time in) hawaii influence her music?

    Watching/Reading some of her other interviews, it seems to have a pretty good influence. Would be interested to see what she has to say to us about that one Informer! :)

  24. matt:

    yeah, brah...just wait for them...they coming...I promise...if you no get them, must be your computer is broke. =)


  25. kuya.d:

    What "dream venue" does she want to perform at?

    My fave song has to be "Tell Him" from the Summer Sessions CD.

    Tell her to keep putting out the sweeeeet music.


  26. matt:

    does she have any aspirations to transition to different media types or does she strictly see herself as a musician?


  27. YN:

    so i mentioned to peeps in singapore that you're gonna interview colbie and their question is "when is she coming to singapore to perform?" looks like she's got a fan base here in singapore.. worth it for you to mention to her!! :)


  28. YN:

    oh yeah - that conversation happened over asahi beers and sushi... :)
