MotorCity Casino Hotel to Welcome Joss Stone, 9/11
Joss Stone began pursuing a singing career at 13, securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making debut album, The Soul Sessions, which was released in 2003. Her second record, 2004's Mind Body & Soul capitalized on The Soul Sessions' commercial momentum and critical adoration and earned Stone three Grammy nominations, including one for Best New Artist. It also spawned a self-penned UK Top 10 single, "You Had Me", and earned her Two Brit Awards that same year.
Her third album, Introducing Joss Stone, was a more independent, less packaged effort, on which Stone further showcased her songwriting abilities. Sales revealed she had truly been embraced by the American audience when it crashed onto the US charts at No.2, marking the highest debut ever for a female British solo artist on the Billboard charts. With over 12 million album sales to date and a wealth of experience under her belt, including recent collaborations on record with the likes of Dave Stewart and Mick Jagger, 2012 seemed the right time to return to the Soul Sessions template. Stone decided to bring things full circle and revisit where it all began - with her follow up to that multi-million selling debut The Soul Sessions Volume 2. A stunning exercise in vocal poise, passion and power, the album was well received globally and charted in the Top 20 both in the UK and in the US, garnering some of the best her reviews for many years.
2014 will see her complete work on her seventh studio album and start out on her most ambitious project to date - the Total World Tour.
