Joss Stone Coming to PDX
Playing Crystal Ballroom with Vintage Trouble
Following release-week performances on Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, Live with Kelly, and more, Joss Stone returns to the states for her first U.S. tour behind her new album The Soul Sessions Vol. 2. She plays Portland's Crystal Ballroom on 9/28.
Joss Ston 19f5 e has been obsessed with soul music since she was a little girl. By the time she was in her early teens she had begun to intuitively hone her now trademark gravely-but-lustrous vocals by singing along to Aretha’s Franklin’s Greatest Hits. She began pursuing a singing career at thirteen, securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making debut album, The Soul Sessions, which was released in 2003. Ten years on from those stunning sessions, Joss has decided to bring things full circle and revisit where it all began - with her follow up to that multi million-selling debut, a stunning exercise in vocal poise, passion and power, showcasing some great songs and an artist at the peak of her vocal powers.
Earlier this summer, the Wall Street Journal hailed Joss' "soulful return" and "powerhouse vocals" and Rolling Stone praised the "trademark soul" of the album's lead single, a smoking cover of Broken Bells' "The High Road."
