Biography


Setting out to have collaboration with Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters in August 2005, Joss Stone is going to make a great leap from soul to rock music. The year of 2005 so far has turned out to be a splendid period for this British performer. Not only she's been selected as the spokesperson for The Gap, but also she earned the title of The Sexiest Female Vegetarian Of The Year from People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals (PETA). Having been participated in London's Live 8 Concert and in T in The Park Festival, she plans to exhibit her amazing skills at her U.K. tour in December. It is apparent that her star is indeed shimmering vividly.

Rather than attracted to British music, Joss has been deeply influenced by American music, especially soul and R&B tunes. Spending her early life in Devon, she enjoyed listening to Aretha Franklin's songs which later inspired her to pursue a career in music. Born on April 11, 1987 in the town of Dover in Kent, she went to join an audition at BBC famous TV show, "Star for a Night", at the age of 14. Her performance was so brilliant that it impressed a talent agent who immediately signed her. This was the time when she changed her given name, Joscelyn Eve Stoker, to her current name that the world has recognized of. In order to develop her career, she, accompanied by her mother named Wendy, then decided to enter an audition in New York held by the CEO of S-Curve Records, Steve Greenberg, in 2002.
