Joss Stone the Steamroller

 

Joss Stone, “The High Road”

The Soul Sessions Vol 2

 

When the 16 year old Joss Stone blazed onto the the scene 10 years ago, her irrepressible blues growl seemed to steamroll everything in sight. It’s a big voice that nowadays is totally under her control, ready to be deployed at the sweetest moment.

Covering Broken Bells’ “The High Road”, Stone gives it a soul rough up, with tangy guitars melting beneath big vocal harmonies. As always, it’s Stone’s pipes that are on display, and they ring with a new maturity.
