Joss Stone booking

Category / genre:

Joss Stone has been obsessed with soul music since she was a little girl. By the time she was in her
early teens she had begun to intuitively hone her now trademark gravelly-but-lustrous vocals by
singing along to Aretha’s Franklin’s Greatest Hits. She began pursuing a singing career at thirteen,
securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making debut album, The Soul Sessions, which
was released in 2003. 10 years on from those stunning debut sessions, Joss has decided to bring
things full circle and revisit where it all began – with her follow up to that multi million selling debut; The
Soul Sessions Volume 2 is a stunning exercise in vocal poise, passion and power, showcasing some
great songs and an artist at the peak of her vocal powers.
Following her critically acclaimed arrival on the music scene (which preceded the plethora of soulinspired female artists that came along in her wake) things took off for Joss in an enormous way. Her
second record, 2004’s Mind Body & Soul capitalized on The Soul Sessions’ commercial momentum
and critical adoration and earned Stone three Grammy nominations, including one for Best New Artist.
It also spawned a self-penned UK Top 10 single, “You Had Me”, and earned her Two Brit Awards that
same year. Her third album, 2007’s Introducing Joss Stone, was a more independent, less packaged
effort, on which Joss further showcased her songwriting abilities, and revealed the singer had truly
been embraced by the American audience when it crashed into the US charts at No.2, marking the
highest debut ever for a female British solo artist on the Billboard charts. With over 11 million album
sales to date and a wealth of experience under her belt, including recent collaborations on record with
the likes of Dave Stewart and Mick Jagger (her latest musical adventures), 2012 seemed like the right
time to return to The Soul Sessions model from a new perspective. In her short young life and already
long career, Joss has performed onstage with the likes of James Brown, Gladys Knight, Solomon
Burke, Blondie, Smokey Robinson and Melissa Etheridge among many others. She’s contributed to
albums by Jeff Beck and Ringo Starr, played the Super Bowl pre-game show, performed on the
Grammy’s, – and indeed won a Grammy herself! In her twenty-five years she’s participated in more
moments of absolute musical wonder than most people can hope for in an entire lifetime. And she’s
approached it all with a sense of independence and joie de vivre. Stone has always been a bit of a
rebel, whether she’s dancing barefoot onstage or dyeing her hair various colors or speaking out on
issues she’s passionate about, part of what her fans love about her is that she’s a free- spirit, following
her own instincts at all times.
The past few years have seen further albums: 2009’s ‘Color Me Free’ and 2011 saw two releases –
Joss’ own debut album release on her label Stone’d Records, ‘LP1’, (written and recorded with Dave
Stewart) and a collaboration project, ‘Superheavy’, with Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart, Damien Marley
and AR Rahman. Despite some of the dramas that have followed or beset Stone in her short life so
far, it is her approach to music – intuitive and freeform – merged with the backdrop of nearly a decade
of hard-earned experience in the industry – that characterises the Stone mindset. If she wants to do
something badly enough she gets it done, no matter what the obstacles – but only if she’s having fun
along the way. And she had been thinking for a while that it would be a LOT of fun to revisit where it all
began and re explore the vibe of the first Soul Sessions album – this time as a fully formed artist, just
turned 25, with the life experience now behind her that was, by definition, somewhat limited first time
around at 15 years of age. A phone call with the man who signed her as a teenager, Steve Greenberg
at S-Curve Records, and as is often the case with Stone, an idea quickly became a reality – The Soul
Session Volume 2 – this time as a joint venture between the two. A stellar cast of musicians, including
Ernie Isley on guitar, Delbert McClinton and original Muscle Shoals Swamper Clayton Ivey was
gathered together for an electrifying session in Nashville.

Stone commented: “I really had fun revisiting The Soul Sessions idea and I’m really pleased with the
results. I’ve committed long term to my label Stone’d Records, but it felt right to team up with Steve
and S-Curve again for this release. I think there are some great songs on the album and I loved
performing them with such brilliant musicians – so I hope people enjoy it.”
‘The Soul Sessions Volume 2’ includes versions of classic tracks such as ‘(For God’s Sake) Give More
Power To The People’ (originally recorded by the Chi Lites) and ‘The Love We Had (Stays on my
Mind)’ by the Dells, as well as stunning future single ‘The High Road’ – a stone-cold soul makeover of
Broken Bells’ cult hit. Other stand- outs include a classy version of Womack & Womack’s ‘Teardrops’
and a laid back take Sylvia’s ‘Pillow Talk’. The first single from the album will be the uptempo summer
sound of ‘While You’re Out Looking For Sugar’, originally recorded by The Honey Cone. It all adds up
to a stunning album that showcases an assured artist, comfortable in her skin, and a timely reminder
of why we fell in love with Joss Stone in the first place.
