With a voice that belies his young age, Allen Stone is a “pitch-perfect powerhouse” (USA Today). The smooth falsetto vocals on his wildly successful sophomore album integrate classic soul, catchy pop hooks, R & B beats, and folk roots with lyrical matters of broken relationships, poisonous politics, and the age-old topic of simple, pure celebration. Stone got his start singing at his father’s church in small-town America, but it wasn’t until he was introduced to the greats of soul music—Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, and the confessional lyrics of singer/songwriters of the 1960s and 1970s—that he found the passion that would eventually carry him to a musical home.
