Biography

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 ... Read more in Amazon's Joss Stone Store

I first read about Joss Stone from the pages of MOJO a few months ago and took a note of her name making sure i would check her out, but it wasn't until a couple of weeks ago that I came across this glorious album. From the very first listen i fell in love with her voice and kept thinking to myself over and over, 16? Devon? No way.
There is not one bad song on Soul Sessions and not being a massive fan of Soul I can't compare most of these to the originals, so I can't really say whether they are as good or not. One of the highlights for me(being a massive White Stripes fan) is her cover of 'Fell In Love With A Girl' but sung from a female perspective making it 'Fell In Love With A Boy'.
This album is an excellent debut and shows even better things to come from Joss Stone. I can't wait for an album of original songs from her this year it should be a treat to any music lover.
I'll say it again: What a voice!

I read newspaper articles about Joss Stone and decided to track this album down on import........and it was well worth it. Forget the fact that Joss is a really young girl from Devon, because when she sings she sounds like a Soul Legend...Aretha Franklin in her prime. There is a really interesting selection of tracks on the album, including a fab cover of the classic Isley Brothers "For the love of you", and Joss got to work with an enviable array of artists, including Angie Stone and Latimore.So what does it sound like? It sounds truly truly beautiful....it has an amazingly soulful sound to it and theres not a bad track on it....my faves would have to be "The chokin' kind" "Dirty man" and the aforementioned Isleys cover...........but discover one of this countries most incredible undiscovered talents and BUY THIS ALBUM so you can make your own decision! You wont regret it...if you've an ounce of soul in you, you'll love it!Who needs Pop Idol, with voices like this emerging?

Although we are still waiting for our CD from Amazon.co.uk, we have managed to hear the album through some friends from America. This young girl from Devon has a fantastic voice, sings the Blues with real Soul - not corny in this instance as it's nothing but the truth - and is taking America by storm. She has also had reviews in the Sunday times, the Metro and the Daily Mail in the UK, as well as being played by top UK DJ's - and she hasn't even been released here yet. Rumour has it she has landed a guest spot on tour with Simply Red in the states - buy the CD, it's gotta be worth it.

Firstly, her voice. This girl can sing! Clear, pure, strong notes. If like me you hate warblers, then Joss Stone is well worth a listen. She has superb control too, and a fantastic range. I really didn't think a slim person could create such aural wonderment (small diaphragm). I was wrong.
Secondly, soul. If you're stuck in classic 70s Miami then you may not appreciate it. But if you open your musical horizons you may find it rewarding. Her first album was an Aretha, and while she's no direct replacement (who is? And to be honest, we don't need another Aretha - we have one already!) she has her own sound and it's really rather good. Lie back and close your eyes, it's the real thing. The girl really does have soul.
Thirdly, the album itself. Bringing together some seriously talented players, then throwing a young white Brit girl in the studio with them must have been rather strange for them. But listening to it they must have been impressed by her vocal talents too. The result is not background music for lounge lizard bars, although it'll be featured heavily in such places, it's an album that deserves to be listened to regularly and will be treasured by listeners.
Look, I can gush on about Joss Stone for ages. She could be the lead in a girl group if she liked, and she has the looks too so she wouldn't have to be "the ugly one that can sing but the camera hates". But she's chosen her own path and she obviously loves it. Good for her. And it works! But sadly some people will always hold her most obvious failing against her: she's a pretty white slim teen Brit rather than a big, black momma from the YouEssOfA. But if you're not prejudiced against the concept, you've a treat in store when you listen to this album. It proves music industry hype isn't needed when there is such depth of talent. Did you see her at Glasto? Marvellous!

This is a fantastic album sung by a 16 year old girl from Devon with an incredible voice. She is making it big in America and we are just starting to hear about her in England. I believe she is due to release another album early 2004 and I for one can't wait. Definately worth buying.

What a voice.
What expression.
It's said that to sing like this you've had to experience hurt, suffering and pain. I don't know how much Joss Stone (not her real name) has been through in her 16 year life so far but it must be harder growing up in Dover & Devon than anyone has ever thought.
This album has it all; it's as easy to listen to as a pop album but sung with the emotion of blues singer from the American south.
I'm resisting the urge to draw comparisons with other artists because she's good enough to stand on her own. However, for me, it's a little like when I heard JK from Jamiroquai for the first time. I couldn't believe he was a white kid from west London and, you'll never believe this voice comes from this girl.
Joss won 'Star for a Night' when she was 13 but she no Lame Academy or Flop Idol. She's the real deal.
If you're looking for something new this is it. Honestly you won't regret it. This is an album of covers and it's great. However she can do more than just sing. I've heard a song she co wrote on the radio called 'Jet Lagged' and I'm telling you this girl is going to be big.
Get this album. Be the first. You will be telling your friends about her. You know what they say, some lead and some follow.
