"Joss Stone

From the time the Devon, England-bred Joss Stone emerged on the music scene at age 16, she has always displayed a strength and intensity, despite insisting that back then, being so young, she didn't know what she was doing. Critics disagreed, calling her a singer who possesses a ""rich, deep, soulful belt,"" as the New York Post put it, and ""unlike any singer of her generation."" In 2003, Stone released The Soul Sessions, an album of covers of obscure soul tracks, hit the road for a year, then recorded 2004's Mind, Body & Soul, her first album of original material. Of that album, Newsweek noted: ""Stone can croon it sad, deep, and throaty, belt it out juke-joint style, or get down and funky for the bump-and-grind crowd,"" while Interview heralded her ""gutsy voice, which can sting like aged bourbon, or melt like strap molasses.""

Stone was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2005, including Best New Artist, and performed a memorable tribute to Janis Joplin with Melissa Etheridge at the ceremony. Their rendition of ""Cry Baby""/""Piece of My Heart"" was released as a single, and became Stone's first Top 40 hit in the U.S. That same year, Stone appeared on every American late-night and morning talk show, and scored magazine features everywhere from Rolling Stone to Vanity Fair as well as the cover of fashion bible Elle.

In February 2006, she joined Stevie Wonder, John Legend, and India.Arie for the Super Bowl XL pre-game show, while on the night of the 2006 Grammy Awards, she appeared with Legend and Van Hunt singing a medley of hits by soul star Sly Stone. Their cover of ""Family Affair,"" which appears on the Sly Stone tribute album Different Strokes By Different Folks, has been nominated this year for a Grammy Award for ""Best R&B Performance By A Duo or Group."" Always game to honor the legends who came before her, Stone brought down the house with her rendition of Dusty Springfield

Joss Stone has sold more than 7.5 million albums worldwide; been nominated for four Grammy Awards; appeared onstage with James Brown, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Patti Labelle, Mavis Staples, Donna Summer, and Smokey Robinson; sat for an interview with Oprah Winfrey; starred in two major ad campaigns for the Gap; and performed for more than 200,000 people at the 2005 Live 8 Concert in London - all before reaching the ripe old age of 19.

And yet, only now, on her third album, Introducing Joss Stone, does the British soul singer and songwriter feel she is expressing her true musical vision. "This is the first album I've made that is truly me," she says. "That's why I'm calling it Introducing Joss Stone. These are my words, and this is who I am as an artist."

Muze PNote British soul-pop singer Joss Stone was originally marketed as the teenage second coming of 1970s soul stars like Betty Everett and Ann Peebles. After two albums in that style (one consisting entirely of obscure soul covers) and a U.S. marketing push including several commercials for the Gap, Stone withdrew for a couple of years. INTRODUCING JOSS STONE, from the title onward, is an attempt to completely reinvent Stone's public persona, from a retro-soul blonde to a hip, happening redhead with her finger directly on the pulse of 2007 chart pop.
Muze PNote INTRODUCING JOSS STONE is produced by a bevy of contemporary hitmakers, though primarily Raphael Saadiq, and features cameo appearances by everyone from Lauryn Hill to ex-soccer star Vinnie Jones. But in the center of the drum loops, string sections, and slick electronics stands Stone's commanding voice. Opening track "Girl They Won't Believe It" sets the scene for the album as a whole, with Stone delivering a defiant vocal pitched midway between the appealing brattiness of Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse's full-throated R&B roar. No longer a retro favorite for the old-school R&B crowd, Joss Stone presents herself as a neo-soul diva for her times.

Expert Review Joss Stone - Introducing Joss Stone - CD
By: Brian Williams Cinema Blend CD Reviews
Published on: 3/22/2007 9:33 AM
Joss, she-of-stellar-pipes-and-gams possession, shoots back on the radar with her third album (and second real studio effort) since 2004's well-received Mind, Body, & Soul. On Introducing Joss Stone, written and recorded entirely in the Bahamas by Joss and her musical director/bassist Raphael Saadiq, the girl proves she can bring a whole lot of meat 'n' potatoes to the table. ...read the full review

Always game to honor the legends who came before her, Stone brought down the house with her rendition of Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacher Man" at the UK Music Hall of Fame Awards in November.

Stone will be no less busy in 2007, when Virgin Records releases Introducing Joss Stone.
