Watch Allen Stone performing the hit single “Unaware” from his self-titled new LP on Conan. Stone got his start singing at his father’s church but really got into music ‘later in life’ (he’s only 24!) after being introduced to the music of Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin. He also just launched his new “Way Better” website yesterday too, where he’s streaming the new album.
Big day. Big glasses. Big sweater. Big smile.
From Stone’s Bio:
His debut album “Last To Speak” 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 an intimate challenge to religion. 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.
Allen’s a hell of a performer to catch live, as you’ll figure out pretty quick from this vid of “Satisfaction” from Stone’s sold-out show last summer at Seattle’s Crocodile Cafe.
