DeGraw & Caillat to hit Massachusetts together

, Staff

Gavin DeGraw and Colbie Caillat have announced plans to collaborate for a summer tour. The pair will hit Boston for a co-headlining performance at the Bank of America Pavilion on Wednesday, July 25. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $20 to $45, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

Following their show in Boston, DeGraw and Caillat will travel south to Hyannis for a performance at the Cape Cod Melody Tent on Thursday, July 26. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $45.75 to $64.75.

DeGraw will be touring in support of his third album, Sweeter, which he released last year. Fans can expect to hear his latest hit singles “Not Over You” and “Sweeter”, both of which were co-written by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic.

“I was happy with the way the writing was going; I just felt like I needed someone to rattle my cage and try different things,” DeGraw told Blogcritics Music last fall. “That’s why I reached out and got together with other writers, guys like Ryan Tedder.. who I knew were really talented and work [hard]. They are kind of some of the elite as far as songwriters go in these genres that I’m affiliated with.”

The New York native and one-time Berklee College of Music student recently stared on ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars”.

Caillat intends to showcase material off last year’s All of You. The California’s third album has been powered by singles “I Do” and “Brighter Than the Sun”, the latter of which was co-written and produced by Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic. “Brighter Than the Sun” has also been featured in more than 21 films, television shows and commercials, making it the most licensed new song of the decade. Caillat also collaborated with rapper Common who lends his rhymes to “Favorite Song”. Other songwriting partners on All of You include Toby Gad, Jason Reeves, Rick Nowels, Kara DioGuardi and boyfriend Justin Young.

“It’s just who I am,” said Caillat of her songwriting in an interview with Boston Music Spotlight last summer. “I don’t feel like I have to write a certain way. I write from my experiences; I write whatever I’m going through.”
