Though only 19, Joss Stone has already had an enviable career. She’s sold 7.5 million records, been nominated for Grammy Awards, and appeared onstage with James Brown, the Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, and Donna Summer. Her 2003 debut The Soul Sessions and 2004’s Mind, Body, Soul established her as one of the most promising singers of her generation. An interview with Oprah Winfrey, the cover of Elle and performing at the Superbowl pre-game show in 2006 capped a spectacular few years. Yet Introducing Joss Stone shows a whole new dimension to the young soul belter. It’s the first record to reveal Joss’s full potential, and the creative artist she is capable of being. With the aid of neo-soul stalwart Raphael Saadiq (Common, the Roots), Introducing Joss Stone blends the digital crispness of modern R&B with the singer’s agile, husky tone and her preferred flavours of retro—swooping Motown-style strings, girl-group background vocals, gutbucket soul guitar. Songs like the summery “Girl They Won’t Believe It” and the first single “Tell Me ’Bout It” hover magnificently between eras on an album where the sonic textures are compelling, the melodies stick, and the grooves are irresistible.

With appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman, The Today Show, and The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Joss is getting the word out about the album, and the accompanying tour that’s sure to be one of the hottest tickets of the year.
