Joss Stone Comes to Liverpool

February 11, 2009

We’re very proud to announce an intimate show with one of the world’s true superstars Joss Stone. The 20 year old funk soul sensation from Devon has already achieved so much in life and last year was asked to write the campaign song for President Barack Obama.

Joss Stone (born Jocelyn Eve Stoker on 11 April 1987) is an English soul and R&B singer-songwriter and actress. Stone emerged to fame in late 2003 with her multi-platinum debut album, The Soul Sessions, which made the 2004 Mercury Prize shortlist. Her second album, the equally multi-platinum Mind, Body & Soul, topped the UK Albums Chart for one week and spawned the top ten hit “You Had Me”, Stone’s most successful single on the UK Singles Chart to date. Both album and single each received one nomination at the 2005 Grammy Awards, while Stone herself was nominated for Best New Artist. Stone’s latest album, Introducing Joss Stone, released in March 2007, has achieved gold status by the RIAA.

Throughout her career, Stone has sold over ten million albums worldwide, and has won two BRIT Awards and one Grammy Award. She also made her acting debut in late 2006 with the fantasy adventure film Eragon, as the witch Angela, and she will make her television debut portraying Anne of Cleves in the Showtime series The Tudors in 2009.

She’s in Liverpool and playing it old school with an 11 piece band for one evening only at The Picket.

Tickets go one sale at 9am Monday 16th February.
