Joss Stone has an irresistible groan, a catch in her throat that lends bluesy vulnerability to the self-confidence in her fully open voice. Utterly British, she was Anne of Cleves in The Tudors on TV, she sings with the worldly aches and glories of her twin influences, Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin. The Soul Sessions, Stone’s 2003 debut, sold multi-platinum, as did her follow-up, Mind Body & Soul. Ever since she’s aggressively regenerated the art of belting and wheedling a melody, surpassing competition and collaborating with the likes of Mick Jagger, Ricky Martin, Common, Lauryn Hill and Herbie Hancock.
