SOPHISTICATED SOUL-POP PEARLS
The run on the club shows of Grammy winner Joss Stone in Zurich and Bern was great. Those who were unable to get a ticket for the spring shows now have another opportunity to experience the British soul-pop queen live in Switzerland this year. And this in a very special setting. Joss Stone in the old walls of the Roman Theater of Augusta Raurica, with her well-known hits and songs from the new album "Never Forget My Love", promises to be one of the most impressive events of the concert summer 2022. With Sam Himself as well as Caroline Alves, two of Switzerland's hottest and most excellent young talents will be there as supports.
As far as new music is concerned, the British singer Joss Stone has made herself quite scarce in recent years. Yet she is considered one of the greatest soul-pop voices of the 20th century. Her last album "Water For Your Soul" was released in 2015, but the singer with the distinctive voice could still be heard - all over the world. From 2014 to 2020, she traveled to over 200 countries to give concerts. Even countries like Iraq, Syria, Turkmenistan and North Korea were visited by Joss Stone. On the ground, she worked with charities that are directly involved in the environment, the locals or animal welfare. Joss Stone reduced the CO2 emissions of her tour through targeted climate investments, slim luggage and a greatly reduced crew. A commitment for which she was recently awarded the honorary prize of the German Sustainability Award.
Despite the Corona crisis, 2021 also became a Joss Stone year. In January, her first daughter was born, and just two weeks later she won the final of the British version of "The Masked Singer." And just by the way, a musical baby was born, with which the singer will go on tour again this year. On February 11, 2022 the album "Never Forget My Love" was released. Produced by Dave Stewart (Eurythmics), with whom she last collaborated on the 2011 disc "LP1": "Dave and I have been good friends for a long time and have worked together on various projects. He has this calm, relaxed way that encourages me to tell very personal stories. He's like a breath of fresh air, very young at heart," says Joss Stone, describing the songs on her latest release: "Think Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach, Dionne Warwick - those kind of classic, timeless songs." Joss Stone's eighth album is also a total work of art, which, with its consistently sophisticated sound, is not aimed at the hit lists, but whose magic is hard to resist.
