Allen Stone
Allen Stone
From backwoods barbecues and community gatherings; Allen Stone emerges to share personal
melodies, telling his tales of life after just 24 years. Getting his start singing at his father's church in
small-town America; it wasn't until later when introduced to the greats of soul music (Marvin Gaye,
Aretha Franklin) and then to the confessional lyrical fashion of the 60's -70's singer/ songwriters, did
music begin to ignite intense passion, eventually carrying this boy to a musical home.
On his self-titled sophomore album - an independent self-release which hit digital shelves October 4,
Allen has pushed his sound and lyricism to a greater level of noted individuality. It touches upon a
range of styles and themes. Integrating classic soul, catchy pop hooks, r&b beats and folk roots with
lyrical matters of testimonial broken relationships, poisonous politics and the age-old topic of simple,
pure celebration. Stone's music is notable for his finely crafted evocative songs and a fresh, smooth,
soul-filled voice-one that certainly belies his age.
Allen Stone has shot up the R&B/Soul charts on iTunes, peaking at the number 2 spot, and hit #9 and
#62 on the Billboard Heatseekers and R&B/Hip Hop Album charts, respectively, and has garnered
national praise - USA Today called him a "pitch-perfect powerhouse". He has sold-out tour dates in
numerous markets under his belt including Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, and
Los Angeles. A performance on Conan on October 26 along with his emphasis on live performances
has landed nods from the Washington Post, New York Times, Grantland, and others - all without any
support of a label, publisher, or publicist.
