There is quite a stir surrounding America’s latest soul sensation, Allen Stone. Perhaps it’s because the 25-year-old has drawn comparisons to Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers (The New York Times). Or that he has been selling out shows from coast to coast. Allen’s first national TV appearance on Conan came after the music booker saw a YouTube video of Allen performing in his mother’s living room. Since then, he has appeared on Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly to name just a few. Allen’s debut album was the self-released ‘Last To Speak’ (2010), followed by his second, self-titled album in 2012. That album, set for release in Australia this March, features some of the darker topics of Allen’s era, including the toll technology has taken on relationships and the current economic crisis. One thing for sure is that Allen Stone can sing, and the raw, soulful power of his voice is winning him an adoring fan base world-wide, as USA Today puts it, he is the “pitch perfect powerhouse.”
