“I’ve always wanted to play an acoustic tour, showing the rawness of the songs I wrote in their natural state,” Caillat said in a statement. “The best part about this tour is that my band and openers are the people I wrote and recorded this record with, my best friends & my fiancé. Justin Young and High Dive Heart will be trading off 1st & 2nd opening slots each night, and they will also be my band members. We’re playing my new album and songs from previous albums, along with a Q&A.”

The Malibu Sessions – the follow-up to 2014’s Gypsy Heart – is due out in October. The LP marks the singer/songwriter’s first release via her own PlummyLou Records. An announcement posted on Kalamazoo State Theatre’s website notes that she launched the label “in an effort to continue creating music that is in line with her vision and under her complete creative control.”

Caillat says she’s inspired by classic rock from the ‘70s and that The Malibu Sessions includes “a lot of Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac and Tom Petty influences.”
