Joss Stone's Early Embarrassment
Joss Stone - who shot to fame aged 16 - admits she is embarrassed about the sound of her voice on her previous albums and can't bring herself to listen to her old recordings.
Joss Stone hates her old albums.
The 'Fell In Love With A Boy' singer - who shot to fame in 2003 aged 16 with her debut album 'Introducing Joss Stone' - dislikes the way her voice sounds on her earlier work and admits that once she has finished recording an LP, she scarcely goes back to listen again.
She said: "I don't really listen to my own music that often, unless while I'm making it. And then once it's out I don't listen to it. I really liked 'Introducing Joss Stone', I really enjoyed that because it was, y'know, my little baby.
"I don't really like listening to 'The Soul Sessions' because my voice was so young and wasn't confident at all. If you compare the voice... For me to listen to it it's not fun. And I think my2004 album 'Mind, Body & Soul' was like, okayish, I was figuring things out, but it was like, meh. "
The 22-year-old singer also admits she will only continue making music while she finds the process fun.
She added: "To be honest, my life is not to be taken seriously. Everything I do I just do it because it's fun and if I stop enjoying it I stop doing it. You've just got to enjoy each day. And God, when you make things serious it's your fault, you're doing it."
