An electrifying mix of warm vintage soul, ’70s-style R&B, Motown girl-group harmonies, and hip-hop grooves, the album is the one that Stone describes as “truly me. That’s why I’m calling it Introducing Joss Stone,” she says. “These are my words, and this is who I am as an artist.”
Stone first emerged on the music scene as a preternaturally gifted 16-year-old with a “rich, deep, soulful belt,” as the New York Post put it, calling her “unlike any singer of her generation.” In 2003, she released The Soul Sessions, an album of covers of obscure soul tracks, hit the road for a year, then recorded Mind, Body & Soul, her first album of original material. Stone was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2005, including Best New Artist, and performed a tribute to Janis Joplin with Melissa Etheridge at the ceremony.
Over the course of her career, Stone has also appeared onstage with James Brown, The Rolling Stones, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Mavis Staples, Donna Summer, Smokey Robinson, Rob Thomas, John Mayer, and John Legend. She has performed for more than 200,000 people at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London and most recently wowed the crowd with her rendition of Dusty Springfield’s “Son of a Preacher Man” at the UK Music Hall of Fame Awards in November. Now 19, Stone has sold over 7.5 million albums worldwide.
