Joss Stone Returns to Her Roots at Oracle OpenWorld Music Festival

Fans crowded Oracle Square in the heart of San Francisco on Tuesday night for the soulful R&B sounds of Joss Stone. Another stellar night of entertainment in the Oracle OpenWorld Music Festival lineup, Stone’s concert was just one of the attractions around town. Attendees also packed venues to see BluesMix and Afrofunk Experience at Slim’s; The English Beat at Minna Alley; Golden State, Low Fying Owls, and Death Valley High at Mezzanine; Those Darlins and Old 97’s at Yerba Buena Gardens; and DJ John Lynch at John Colins.

In addition to new material from Soul Sessions Volume 2, Stone also performed crowd favorites from her first album. But whether she was singing old or new songs made no difference to the fans, who seemed to love them all, along with the singer herself. The British neosoul singer began pursuing a singing career at 13 and had a record deal by the time she was 15. She rose to fame a year later with her multiplatinum, star-making debut album, The Soul Sessions, which made the 2004 Mercury Prize shortlist. Ten years later, Stone has come full circle with the release of her latest album, The Soul Sessions Volume 2.
