Angie Stone

Thursday 16th March 2023

Neo-soul icon Angie Stone will be performing at the De La Warr Pavilion in 2023!


Stone rose to prominence as the lead singer and rapper of hip-hop trio The Sequence. After working with both Lenny Kravitz and D’Angelo in the 1990s, Angie Stone released her solo debut album Black Diamond in 1999. The album yielded one of her best known songs, ‘No More Rain (In This Cloud)’ – which paid homage to Stone’s soulful influences by sampling Gladys Knight & The Pips’ aching ‘Neither One of Us (Wants To Say Goodbye)’.

After moving to Clive Davis’ J Records label, Stone released her seminal album Mahogany Soul in 2001. The album featured Wish I Didn’t Miss You which sampled the evergreen classic by The O’Jays’ Backstabbers. The song has become the signature tune for Angie Stone being streamed 100M times on Spotify.

More albums have followed such as Stone Love (2004), The Art of Love & War (2007), Unexpected (2009), Dream (2015) and Full Circle (2019).

Angie Stone has worked with artists such as Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, Musiq Soulchild, Eve, Anthony Hamilton, Floetry, Calvin Richardson, Betty Wright, D’Angelo, The Neptunes, Guru, James Ingram, Dave Hollister, Jaheim, Omar, Candy Dulfer, Joe, Stevie Wonder, Groove Armada, Reel People, Lenny Kravitz and many more.

Singer, MC, self-taught keyboardist, and prolific songwriter, Stone’s first claim to fame was her membership in the Sequence; a pioneering hip-hop trio who arrived with “Funk You Up” (1979), the second release on Sugar Hill Records and the first rap single by an all-female group.
