Biography

Dover, United Kingdom (2003 – present)

Joss Stone (born Joscelyn Eve Stoker in Dover, United Kingdom on April 11, 1987) is an English singer whose throaty style of singing was influenced by early singers.

Her debut album, The Soul Sessions, consists of classic tracks by Betty Wright, Aretha Franklin, Laura Lee and Bettye Swann and was released in late 2003. It reached the top 5 in the UKalbums chart, and also made the top forty of the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart.

Joss Stone was nominated for “British Breakthrough Act”, and won “British Female Solo Artist” and “British Urban Act”, entering the Guinness World Records for being the youngest BRIT Award solo winner at age seventeen.

After achieving critical acclaim for The Soul Sessions, Stone recorded an album full of original songs in 2004 titled Mind, Body & Soul.
It proved to be an even bigger success than her first album, as it debuted at #1 in the UK (breaking the record for the youngest female ever to top the albums charts there, a record previously held by Avril Lavigne).

Stone began working on her third studio album, Introducing Joss Stone, at Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas, in May 2006.
It was released on 12 March 2007 in the UK on Virgin Records, involving production by Raphael Saadiq and collaborations with Lauryn Hill, Common and Joi.
