Spotted on a BBC talent show when she was just 13-years-old, Joss was snapped up by New York label S-Curve, going on to notch up record sales of over 10 million and become one of Britain's biggest female stars. Recorded with legendary blues and jazz session musicians, debut album The Soul Sessions (2003) showcased a remarkable new voice that drew on her heroes Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield and Angie Stone. The album of cover versions received a hugely positive critical response, being nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and producing the hits Fell In Love With A Boy and Super Duper Love. Turning her hand to songwriting for the first time, follow-up Mind, Body And Soul (2004) became a big success, topping the UK charts and winning three BRIT Awards, as Stone went on to perform at the Grammy Awards with Melissa Etheridge. Further collaborations with Lauryn Hill and Wyclef Jean followed on the US Number 2 album Introducing Joss Stone (2005) and she won a Grammy Award after duetting with John Legend on Sly & the Family Stone's Family Affair. Away from music Stone played Anne of Cleves in BBC drama The Tudors, campaigned for PETA and was the youngest woman named in the Sunday Times 2006 Rich List.
