Joss Stone - 20 Years of Soul Tour
After signing her first record deal at the age of 16, UK singer-songwriter Joss Stone has continued to redefine her generation's take on soul music. The Brit and Grammy Award winner became infatuated with soul music at an early age and was influenced by Aretha Franklin and Dusty Springfield. Determined to follow in the footsteps of her idols, she kicked off her career with 2003's The Soul Sessions, achieving triple platinum status in the UK and gold certification by the RIAA. Her current tour marks the 20th anniversary of that album's release.
At just 30 years old Joss has already enjoyed a long career. She has kept the company of musical royalty from the outset, performing alongside many legendary artists such as James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight, Sting, Van Morrison, and Melissa Etheridge amongst many others. She has collaborated with and contributed to albums for many of the world’s finest musicians, including Jeff Beck, Sting, Mick Jagger, and Damien Marley. The list goes on.
Joss’s love of music and fierce independence has led Stone to break away from the constraints of being tied to a label and has enabled her to explore many different genres of music. The joy that she finds in her chosen artistry has helped her to forge ahead, always looking to break new ground both musically and in her life. It is evident that Stone is an independent soul, a true free spirit. Some may call her rebellious, others would say that she is a young woman who is completely confident in her chosen direction and is at peace with all that means.
