“a tenor voice with the eagerness and frisky syncopations of [Stevie] Wonder” – New York Times
Bluesfest Touring welcomes blue-eyed soul master, Allen Stone back to Australia.
With 3 albums under his belt, singer/songwriter Allen Stone proves himself deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends all pop convention.
Iluka - Support for Sydney Show.
WILSN - Support for Melbourne Show.
Drawing inspiration from musical heroes including Stevie Wonder, Stone gracefully blends everything from edgy soul-pop and earthy folk-rock to throwback R&B and Parliament-inspired funk.
He has performed on the likes of The Late Show with David Letterman, graced the pages of the New York Times, performed with Macklemore, and even landed a gig as the opening act for soul legend Al Green.
The Chewelah, Washington-bred 28-year-old’s 2011 album climbed to the top 10 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart, along with entering the top five on iTunes’ R&B/Soul chart and gained acclaim from renowned rock critic Ann Powers.
Made in collaboration with Swedish soul singer/songwriter/phenom Magnus Tingsek, and producer Benny Cassette (Kanye West, Frank Ocean), Stone’s latest album Radius captures the warm energy of that creative connection and transports the listener to a higher and more exalted plane.
Allen’s star continues to rise. He’s one of the most breathtaking soul artists in the world today, emanating joy and astute soul sensibility in his live shows; Australian audiences are going to absolutely love him.
