Joss Stone Reminds us of her Awesomness @ Hootenanny 2014

Joss Stone is a singer that I love, so it's always great to see her featured on primetime television.

News Spam: Joss Stone, Mariah Carey and Madonna

I was a little miffed when during the talks about who would sit on The Voice (UK) judging panel, that there was no mention of one of Britain's best young singers, Joss Stone. Well though there was no mention of her name, it turns out that the singer was in fact asked, and guess what, she turned it down! Her reason:
"The thing is I love music and I love singing with other people and I don't see it as a competition at all. I feel that those things are really good to get exposure but they kind of make it into a competition and that is just sad.

"Other than that it is great because they get to be heard by millions and they never would have been before."

Could Aretha Franklin Be Joining American Idol?

Don't mess with my awesome Photoshop skills.

With the current line-up of judges on American Idol falling faster than the chances of me magically receiving tickets for the opening ceremony of the Olympics, it looks like an unlikely candidate has stepped up to the mark and stated their desire to claim one of the coveted (now empty) seats. Enter, Aretha Franklin!

Joss Stone "While You're Out Looking For Sugar" [New Music]

Joss Stone's debut, The Soul Sessions, is still one of my favourite albums by the singer. Released in 2003, the set was a collection of expertly crafted cover songs, all with a soul infusion.

Duelling Divas: Who sang "You've got the Love" better, Florence Welch or Joss Stone?

You've got the love is a song with so many twist and turns in its development, not to mention all its subsequent remixes, that I'm not even going to attempt to cover its inception and evolution in this post, because quite frankly I can't even make sense of it.

Joss Stone- Vocal range/profile

Vocal Type: Mezzo-Soprano
Vocal Range: 2 Octaves  4 notes C3-G5
Whistle Register:  No
Vocal Pluses: Expressive, soulful voice that manages to maintain these qualities throughout the registers.The lower range has a beautiful cool, smoky tone to it whereas the belted voice is warmer with a gutsy, passion to it. Her head voice is also full, and bright.
Vocal Negatives:  The technique she employs to generate grunts and growls, though sounding good and in keeping with her vocal style, can cause problems to the voice if used extensively.

Prepare yourselves for the return of British soul singer Joss Stone

Having been seen stretching her acting chops of late I was worried singing sensation Joss Stone had ditched singing for good. However, news has reached me that the British soul singer is gearing up to release her first album in 2 years, entitled LP1, on her own Label.

I'm genuinely excited to see how this project- which hardly anything about has been revealed- will sound. Especially now that she has full artistic control over her material. All I know of the project is that it was recorded in Nashvile in only 6 days(!) with Eurythmics legend David A. Stewart. This is bound to be something special. Roll on release date 26th of July!

In honour of this news I thought it was time to showcase some of the singers best live performances. Though Joss lacks the wide vocal range or bombastic belting voice of other Divas, the earthy character of her voice and the power of her delivery more than makes up for it. Her skill and technique is something many a singer would trade a couple of octaves, if not their right arm, for.
