In 2003, British soul singer Joss Stone stunned the music world with her much-talked-about debut album of covers. The fact that she was just fifteen when she recorded The Soul Sessions seemed incredible: Stone’s voice sounded nothing like a teenager’s but was reminiscent of a seasoned singer who has spent years in smoky nightclubs. It’s no wonder that The Soul Sessions has become a modern classic. Eleven years and a handful of albums on, the count is eleven million albums sold and the soul singer is still performing and producing new material. In 2015 her latest album Water For The Soul was released. The year before saw the start of her ambitious Total World Tour: her aim is to play a concert in every country on the planet. This is her fourth appearance at North Sea Jazz; she made her Dutch festival debut there when she was eighteen.
