Grammy and Brit award-winning artist Jost Stone released her debut album, The Soul Sessions, in 2003, and she’s been touring to celebrate the record’s 20th anniversary!

Joss recently performed at the Warner Theatre in DC, and Steve Satzberg was there to photograph the show.

The following is adopted from marketing copy.

Over the last 20 years, Joss has released nine studio albums which have sold over 15 million copies worldwide. Stone has been known to experiment with different styles in her own work as well, and her albums feature an exciting patchwork of various influences, creating a catalogue characterized by the fusion of her powerhouse soul vocals with reggae, world music, and hip-hop soundscapes.

Early in the Warner Theatre show on August 25, Joss performed “Fell in Love with a Boy” from her debut album, and then she performed singles from across her career as well as covers.

A double Brit Award- and Grammy-winning artist, Joss Stone is without question among the most iconic soul singers of the modern era, a preternaturally gifted vocalist and songwriter whose remarkable career now spans two decades with no sign of slowing down. From 2003’s internationally acclaimed, chart-topping debut album, The Soul Sessions, to making history with 2004’s RIAA platinum certified Mind Body & Soul as the then-youngest-ever female artist to top the UK Albums Chart. The Kent born, Devon based artist has recently split her time between the UK and the USA.

Watch the official music video for “Fell in Love with a Boy” by Joss Stone on YouTube:

In 2011, Joss released her fifth album and first full-length collaboration with Dave Stewart, LP1, which made a Top 10 debut on the overall Billboard 200 upon its release — Stone’s third consecutive Top 10 album on the US charts.

Over the last decade, in addition to writing and recording new music, Stone embarked on her audacious Total World Tour in 2014, performing gigs and collaborating with local artists in over 200 countries. In addition, she also created The Joss Stone Foundation to work alongside a global network of charities and partners to provide solutions and deliver locally in cultures and communities around the world. She completed this mammoth undertaking in 2019.

Following that, Stone has launched a successful podcast “A Cuppa Happy,” along with a her Facebook Live cooking show “Cooking With Joss,” and in February 2021 she won season two of the smash hit competition series The Masked Singer UK, dressed as a sausage!

In January 2022, Joss co-headlined a US tour with fellow Brit Corinne Bailey Rae, leading up to the release of her 8th album in February 2022, the critically acclaimed Never Forget My Love, produced by Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart, and written by Joss and Dave at Bay Street Studios, Bahamas, and recorded at Blackbird Studios, Nashville. At about the two-thirds mark on August 25, Joss performed “When You’re in Love” from that album at the Warner Theatre.

Also in 2022, Joss published her first-ever Xmas album, Merry Xmas, Love, released through Steve Greenberg’s S- Curve/Hollywood Records, reuniting her with the man who signed her for her debut Soul Sessions album.
