Young R&B powerhouse Allen Stone is a self-described "hippie with soul," marrying social consciousness with pitch-perfect vocals reminiscent of soul greats like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye. A gifted performer, Stone radiates charisma on stage, bringing expertly crafted songs like "Unaware" to life with an infectious, danceable energy amplified by his razor-sharp backing band. With a highly anticipated new album due out in 2014, Stone and company will treat fans to new material alongside fan favorites on their upcoming tour dates.
Hailing from small-town Washington, Stone began singing in his father's church at age three, leading worship services with his rapturous voice and trusty guitar by age 14. After discovering soul music in his teens, he distanced himself from religious music , moving to Seattle to pursue a more socially conscious sound in the vein of his soul icons like Bill Withers and Stevie Wonder. After self-releasing Last to Speak in 2010 and Allen Stone in 2011, he found himself climbing the iTunes and Billboard charts and performing on high-profile talk shows ranging from Conan to Ellen. With his highly anticipated third album due out in 2014, Stone will treat fans to his acclaimed live show on a series of tour dates.
