The lyrics bring two words to mind: Paradise, Freedom. Joss’ vocals describe a place where peace is part of the culture and people live high in the sky. If you close your eyes, listen to the bass and hear the influence of Aston “Family Man” Barrett (The Wailer that held down the low end with authority). Lucky for you, she’s thrown in the Bass stem for you.
A singer-songwriter from Devon, UK Joss has been captivated by soul music since she was a little girl. As she moved through her early teens she intuitively honed her now trademark gravely-but-lustrous vocals by singing along to Aretha Franklin’s Greatest Hits. She began pursuing a singing career at thirteen, securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making Critically acclaimed debut album, The Soul Sessions, which was released in 2003. Grammy and Brit award winning Stone has since released 7 studio albums as she has continued in her journey of musical exploration.
