Portland, OR | More Info:

Joss Stone has been obsessed with soul music since she was a little girl. By the time she was in her early teens she had begun to intuitively hone her now trademark gravely-but-lustrous vocals by singing along to Aretha’s Franklin’s Greatest Hits. She began pursuing a singing career at thirteen, securing a record deal at 15, and recording her star-making debut album, The Soul Sessions, which was released in 2003.

Ten years on from those stunning sessions, Joss has decided to bring things full circle and revisit where it all began – with her follow up to that multi million-selling debut, The Soul Sessions Vol 2, a stunning exercise in vocal poise, passion and power, showcasing some great songs and an artist at the peak of her vocal powers.

Following her critically acclaimed arrival on the music scene (which preceded the plethora of soul-inspired female artists that came along in her wake) things took off for Joss in an enormous way. Her second record, 2004’s Mind Body & Soul capitalized on ‘The Soul Sessions’ commercial momentum and critical adoration and earned Stone three Grammy nominations, including one for Best New Artist.

It also spawned a self-penned UK Top 10 single, “You Had Me”, and earned her two Brit Awards that same year. Her third album, 2007’s Introducing Joss Stone, was a more independent, less packaged effort, on which Joss further showcased her songwriting abilities, and revealed the singer had truly been embraced by the American audience when it debuted on the Billboard Top 100 at No.2, marking the highest debut ever for a female British solo artist. With over 11 million album sales to date and a wealth of experience under her belt, 2012 seemed like the right time to return to the Soul Sessions model from a new perspective.

    Would love to make this concert – we’ve both come full circle –


  50. Skip Stone September 27, 2012 at 3:15 pm #

  55. Jaimee September 27, 2012 at 3:45 pm #

    My best friend is a bartender and they have an old school CD player jukebox- we loaded it with Joss Stone and play it constantly, even the grumpy 80 year old regulars during the day have started to like her! I would love to take my friend and go see her live!!

  56. andrew September 27, 2012 at 3:50 pm #

    No plans for a Friday night yet, this would definitely solve that!

  57. Elizabeth Martin September 27, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

    What a shame it would be to have Joss a stone’s throw from me, without the ability to hear her soulful voice.

  58. Andrea September 27, 2012 at 3:58 pm #

    Oh, please oh please! I could really use the feminine healing soulfulness of Joss right now. She moves me like no other currently and I would be ever so grateful!! :) There’s a first time for everything right–winning for me!

  59. Dave September 27, 2012 at 4:14 pm #

    Joss Stone and Vintage trouble in the Crystal Ballroom. The place may never be the same!

  60. Scott Weber September 27, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    My introduction to Joss (and the last time I saw her live) was at Voodoo Fest 2008 and I’ve been under her spell ever since. So, oh, please, stick a pin in my heart!

  61. Cassie September 27, 2012 at 4:51 pm #

    What an awesome show this will be! I hope whoever goes appreciates her originality and beautiful presence!

  62. Kenneth Schmidt September 27, 2012 at 5:09 pm #

    She’s beautiful.

  63. ElizD September 27, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    Joss Stone is coming to Portland!!! How did I not know about this sooner?! I would LOVE to go see her. I need some deep, sweet soul music in my life! Sadly, can’t afford ticket price. Winning would make my month!

  64. Cory September 27, 2012 at 5:34 pm #

    Sweet Soul Sister!!!!

  65. mary b September 27, 2012 at 6:24 pm #

    seriously?? hell yes!

  66. fatina santiago September 27, 2012 at 6:36 pm #

    Music now has lost its soul , joss stone keeps it real and captivates you with her voice and style enjoying her soul through song. Ive never had the opportunity to see her live, and unlike other artists im sure her voice is naturally beautiful in person without all the technology that makes artists popular now. I would love to attend this event to have a wonderful evening out with my partner, especially because we just started our jobs and most of our nights are spent at home. This performance would recharge all those good vibes ! Hope you pick me :) Thanks !

  67. Scott September 27, 2012 at 6:43 pm #

    My daughter and I would love to see her.

  68. scissordub September 27, 2012 at 6:44 pm #

    I’m free tomorrow night

  69. Lynette September 27, 2012 at 7:08 pm #

    I’d like to see if I can get there early enough to get my ol’self a seat in the balcony, front row, so that I can partake of some sweet soul music, in my old age. I’ll tell the truth, I’m happily 64 and 3/4.

  70. caprice September 27, 2012 at 7:25 pm #

    I am a big fan!!!

  71. Jenean September 27, 2012 at 7:33 pm #

  72. Melissa Pisias September 27, 2012 at 8:04 pm #

    I would love to win tickets for my husband and me. I introduced him to Joss’s music and he had my CDs in his car for months. We got married on August 11th! It’d be nice to win something since we haven’t taken a honeymoon. xo

  73. Laurie September 27, 2012 at 8:48 pm #

    Wow this would be amazing, I was just brought out an old CD of her’s last week.. DIdn’t know she was in town but would love to see her!!!

  80. Jacqueline September 27, 2012 at 10:56 pm #

    Wow – Joss Stone! I am so enamored with her. I gave up a lover in 2009 when he stated “Joss Stone doesn’t keep my penis hard”. He so had to go!

  81. keely colling September 27, 2012 at 11:13 pm #

  84. Karen Hotchkiss September 28, 2012 at 9:28 am #

    I’d love to win the tickets because every time I listen to Joss Stone makes me think of my friends back in Connecticut. I’ve lived here a month already, and I think they’re still upset with me for moving. Winning these tickets might make it all make sense for them… And it’d be a nice “welcome to your REAL home” gift for me! ;)

  85. Gayleen Williams September 28, 2012 at 9:44 am #

    OK. I’m putting it all on the line for these tickets. I LOVE good music and Joss Stone’s vibe is definitely up there with good music. I’ve been entering to win something for months and still waiting!! I NEED a night out!! MUSIC would def be the best price right about now in my pre-divorce life!

  86. Gayleen Williams September 28, 2012 at 9:45 am #

    I meant …best GIFT right about now

  87. Andrea September 28, 2012 at 9:55 am #

    This would be perfect to be able to take my girlfriend to for her first day without kids in a long time. Plus I love to watch singer/songwriters who perform barefoot.

  94. Andrea September 28, 2012 at 11:47 am #

    I BELIEVE IT TO MY SOUL that I’ll finally be chosen:)

  95. Jamileeé September 28, 2012 at 1:20 pm #
