Water for Joss Stone's Soul

David Burke, R2/Rock'n'Reel, July 2015

"PEOPLE WOULD SAY, 'So, who do you think you are singing these soul music songs when you are 16 and you're white and you're from Devon?' That came up in my life for about five years, every interview I did. Now they've stopped doing that, which is great, because I guess more soul music has come out of different types of people. But at the time it was like, God they give me some shit for that. I got really bored of it."
