From backwoods barbecues and community gatherings; Allen Stone emerges to share personal melodies, telling his tales of life after just 23 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 '60s -'70s singer/ songwriters, did music begin to ignite intense passion, eventually carrying this boy to a musical home
His self-titled sophomore album touches upon a range of styles and themes. Integrating classic soul, catchy pop hooks, R&B beats and folk roots. Stone's music is notable for his finely crafted evocative songs and a fresh, smooth, soul-filled voice --one that certainly belies his age.
In a generation of over-saturation, it's Allen Stone's strong musical talents and honest messages of progression that shall keep this blue-eyed soul continuing to create what only comes best naturally.
