Get Your Weekend Started with Joss Stone at the Space at Westbury

March 17th, 2016

At just 16, Joss Stone (above, covering Stone Temple Pilots’ “Interstate Love Song”), and her big, soulful voice, first rose to fame with the release of her debut LP, The Soul Sessions (stream it below)—reinterpretations of classic soul songs—in 2003, earning her heady comparisons to Aretha Franklin and Janis Joplin in the process. The award-winning singer has remained in the public eye ever since, appearing in films and TV shows and releasing six more studio albums, three EPs and a host of singles. Her most recent LP, Water for Your Soul (stream it below), came out last summer, impressing the folks at Paste, who call her a “modern queen of the timeless old-school soul,” adding that she “walks a tightrope between real-world consciousness and Hacky Sack hippie oblivious. But throughout, Stone maintains her soulful vocals without resorting to diva histrionics.” A consummate performer, Joss Stone plays the Space at Westbury tomorrow night.
