Joss Stone concert review!

Last night I went to "The House of Blues" in New Orleans to see Joss Stone in concert. A lot of people don't know who she is but they soon will. I've seen a few articles posted on here in here so maybe some of you read them.

She was simply amazing. I can not believe this girl is only 16. Or is it 17, now? Either way, she is incredible. She can really perform and dance and is just so comfortable up on stage. She made tons of eye contact throughout her set. She caught my eye quite a few times (It was standing room and I was at the stage), almost turned me straight!!

Her voice is amazing on the CD and I was really curious to see how she held up live. Well let me tell you, she may be the first person to sound better in person than on their CD. She was just simply amazing. She is so good in person that during her first song I seriously wondered if she was lipsynching! (and no, she wasnt!)

She sang most of the songs from her "Soul Sessions" album plus about 4 songs from her upcoming album. I really liked what I heard from the new album and can not wait to get it for myself. Unfortunately she never mentioned when it might be due out.

If anyone here has a chance to go see her then please do. You will NOT regret it. My friend that went with me has been to more concerts than she can count and she says this is one of the best concerts she ever attended.

Glad you got it and liked it so much. I am so mad because she is doing another show today in New Orleans at 3pm but I don't get off work until 2 or later so I won't be able to go.

Could you please tell me what her 4 new songs sounded like??? is it soul??? I read in her interview that her new album would be quite different, I just hope she doesn't go bubble gum pop on me!!! or worst R&B ''à la Mariah Carey''.

It aint "soul?" What is "soul" then? I would LOVE to hear your answer. What she does on "Soul Sessions" is definitely soul music, from back in the day. It isn't any of this new crap you might call soul.

Her new album stuff was great! I really liked it. To me it is similar to "Soul Sessions" in the overall sound of everything. It certainly is NOT bubble gum pop or anything like that! Don't worry, if you like Joss Stone now, you will still like her after the release of her new CD.

Thanx man good to hear that she's sticking to her roots!!! And yes, obviously, G Slammed knowledge of soul music seems quite limited.

Like "back in the day" ..eh?

Case closed. Can't take you seriously.
You don't have a clue whereas soul music is concerned.

Soul Sessions is nothing remotely like "back in the day" soul music, neither is it on level with even alot of the sorriest neo-soul/R&B stuff out there now. Don't worry though. She'll gain as much ground as the equally "melodious" (lol) voiced Anastascia did.

What exactly is the bare-naked truth?- Joss stone has a great voice for the type of soul songs she sings, end of storey. Yeah she isnt black, but so what, she has the voice, let it go

If you want to think she "has the voice".. that's your choice. Think it.

I say she's nothing out of the ordinary. I say she's more hyped up and psyched-out than gifted.
And she isn't impressing the masses as you may be lead to believe.

That's the buttass-naked truth.

She has only just come on the scene so no she isnt a world-wide star yet, but she is certianly talented and has a great voice, only a handful of ppl would agree with yu that she is overhyped and psyched-out.

Only time will tell how well she does, so lets just see

I'm interested to know what you are comparing it to? What is the new crap that you're referring to?

Just wondering what your definition of new soul is so I can understand your position and what her album might sound like. I've still only heard one song and saw her perform on some late night show that I can't remember which. She was good. She sounded good. The song she sang I don't remember it sounding like a back in the day, Aretha, Sam Cooke, etc..."Soul" song. That's why I'm curious as to what contemporary artist are you comparing her to?

For the record I think she's talented. I think she sounded good.
