Joss Stone Is Here!

Saturday 1 December 2007

After a sold-out Sydney show and a storming headline spot at the East Coast Blues Festival, Joss Stone is back to charm and seduce new audiences with her multitude of talents.

In 2004, Stone's album Mind, Body & Soul, featuring the hit single 'You Had Me,' earned multiple Grammy Awards nominations.

In 2005 Stone won two prestigious BRIT Awards including 'British Female Solo Artist', however it wasn't until this year that she won her first Grammy - 'Best R&B Performance By A Duo or Group' - for her 'Family Affair' collaboration with John Legend and Van Hunt.

And her show is more than likely to wow the crowds as it's the only date she's performing in NZ, it'll surely be a truly memorable experience.

Ever since Joss Stone burst onto the scene back in 2003, she's been showered with awards. Her debut album "The Soul Sessions" was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize in 2003 and went triple platinum in the UK.

She's now sold over 10 million albums worldwide and her star status shows no sign of waning. In fact, as if her talent in the music industry wasn't enough, she's also ventured into the world of cinema making her acting debut as a witch in fantasy flick, "Eragon".

In March this year, Joss released her third album "Introducing Joss Stone" to rapturous reviews - and a change of image. Notorious in the past for her barefoot performances (she'd fit in well over here during the summer months) and neo-hippy fashions, Joss dyed her locks purple to promote the new record.

As there's only one date for the City of Sails at the ASB Theatre, it's sure to be a great gig.
