Joss Stone - The Soul Sessions
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Joss Stone - The Soul SessionsPut this on, close your eyes and try to convince yourself that the singer is a 16-year-old blonde English schoolgirl. It’s simply not possible. As Joss Stone herself says: “People always think I’m some 50-year-old black woman.” That’s because Stone sings Aretha Franklin’s “All the King’s Horses” and Laura Lee’s “Dirty Man” with an emotional depth well beyond her years. Throw in an ultra-cool version of the White Stripes’ “Fell in Love with a Boy,” backed by the Roots, and you’ve got a stunning, unforgettable debut.
