Joss Stone was born in Dover, Kent, England, and spent her teenage years in Ashill, Devon. She grew up listening to a wide variety of music including R&B and soul music performed by such artists as Dusty Springfield and Aretha Franklin; as a result, she developed a soulful style of singing like her idols. In 2001, at the age of fourteen, she appeared on the BBC Television's talent show Star for a Night singing Donna Summer's 1979 "On the Radio". Soon after, she was signed by S-Curve Records, and flown to Miami, Florida to start working on her debut album, The Soul Sessions, released in September 2003.
After achieving critical acclaim for The Soul Sessions, Joss Stone recorded her second album Mind, Body & Soul (2004). It proved to be an even bigger success than her first album, as it debuted at number one in the UK and just missed the top ten of the U.S. Billboard 200, after peaking at number eleven. The lead single, "You Had Me", became her first top ten hit in the UK. Follow-up singles "Right to Be Wrong" and "Spoiled" both made the top forty, and "Don't Cha Wanna Ride" the top twenty. "Spoiled" landed just outside the top fifty of U.S. Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, peaking at number fifty-four.
In February 2005, Joss Stone was nominated for three Brit Awards, of which she won two - "British Female Solo Artist" and "British Urban Act". She performed "Angels" with Robbie Williams during the ceremony. She also received three nominations at the 2005 Grammy Awards, where she sang barefoot on stage with rock performer Melissa Etheridge, in tribute to the late blues-rock singer Janis Joplin.
Joss Stone began working on her third studio album, Introducing Joss Stone, in Barbados, in May 2006. It features collaborations with Lauryn Hill, Novel, and Common. Confirmed songs are "Head Turner", "Tell Me What We're Gonna Do Now" (featuring Common), "Music" (featuring Lauryn Hill), "Tell Me 'Bout It" (the first single), "Girls, You Won't Believe It", "Baby Baby Baby", and "I Wish".
