“..Allen Stone has the best effing voice I’ve ever heard” MTV
“…his voice and energy reminds listeners of music legends like Stevie Wonder and Prince” CNN

After making such a huge impression on his first – sold out – Australian Tour, Allen Stone is back and ready to captivate once again. At 26 years old, he hypnotized the entire crowd with his heartfelt lyrics and social morals – get set to be blown away by the extra-ordinary raw soulful talent of Allen Stone.

Allen Stone is the son of a preacher man, and like many soul singers, he got his start in church. Surrounded by gospel music, Allen didn’t discover soul music until he was a teenager and started collecting classic albums from the 60’s and 70’s. Allen Stone says of the genre; “Soul music from that time wasn’t just about bumpin’ and grindin’ at the club- it was a huge part of a cultural movement. That’s where my inspiration comes from”. It is no surprise that Allen Stone has drawn comparisons to Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Prince, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers (The New York Times).

Allen Stone will be bringing a new album with him, his debut album was the self released Last To Speak (2010) he was then signed to ATO records who re-released his second, self titled album (2012). Allen Stone jumped into the Top 10 of Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart and entered the Top 5 of iTunes R&B/ Soul Charts.

From the Church to the screen, Allen Stone’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 (The Clip has now been viewed over 2.5 million times and growing) . Since then, he has appeared on Ellen, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly just to name a few.

Allen Stone can sing and, as USA Today puts it, he is the “pitch perfect powerhouse”. The raw, soulful power of his voice is winning him an adoring fan base world-wide. Tickets are expected to sell out fast. Don’t miss out on this chance to see Allen Stone – a true soul performer.
