Joss Stone


Making her debut with the multi-platinum selling The Soul Sessions, Joss Stone has developed into one of the leading soul singers of our time. With an earthy voice and signature barefoot performances, the British crooner has found major success on both the U.S. and UK charts, selling over 13 million records worldwide. An occasional actress, she’s also part of the cross-genre group SuperHeavy alongside Damian Marley, Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart and Indian musician A.R. Rahman. Despite having her life threatened (two men are currently on trial for allegedly plotting to rob and murder Stone), the Grammy-winning singer continues to thrive in the entertainment world, ranking as the fifth richest British musician under 30.
