Jocelyn Eve Stoker, aka Joss Stone’s voice fills the next Tuesday night, as the young British singer, who has achieved amazing success in early age enchants the Hungarian audience on July 29.
Only very few people manage to become a star at the age of sixteen, but Joss Stone undoubtedly belongs to this category. In 2004, with the “You Had Me” hit single and the subsequent million-selling disc she has immediately became one of the leading singers of the decade. The English-born artist's success was not a surprise: Stone easily impressed the audience with her charismatic songwriting ability, the overwhelming stage presence and her elemental voice, that recalls the best traditions of the genre of soul. Due to this unique sound, Joss receives requests, like the “Keira Knightley for CHANEL” Coco Mademoiselle fragrance advertisement, in which she sings the theme song.
Stone’s popularity is unbroken since the inception: she still delivers more and more successful studio albums, which are almost always able to get in the forefront of the U.S. and UK album lists. Based on her skills it’s not at all surprising, that despite her young age she is Grammy and double Brit Awards-winner. Her position as one of the most respected singers in the world will probably only solidify, based on the million album sales, the tilted records and the awards lining up on her shelves.
Joss Stone is perhaps even more relevant today than in the past few years. Her latest album, “The Soul Sessions Volume 2” is a matching celebration of the singer's former career, which was launched ten years ago by a nearly same titled debut album, The Soul Sessions. Thus, a great opportunity arises on July 29 in Budapest Park to show our love and respect to the artist, who has long been charming us with her strong and powerful, yet feminine mode of presentation, which had a great impact on the music of posterity. Moreover, all this could be done in a hot atmosphered concert in a few days. Don’t miss it!
