The story of Allen Stone’s rise to becoming a successful musician began in the quaint town of Chewelah, Washington. He grew up immersed in the world of gospel music, as the son of a pastor, observing his parents lead their congregation in songs of praise. After a brief stint in college, he decided to chase his musical dreams, relocating to Seattle. He would often crisscross the West Coast in his trusty ’87 Buick to perform at any gig he could find. Stone quickly earned a reputation for his electrifying live performances, and over the years, he’s played up to a staggering 200 dates annually, amassing a dedicated fan base. His remarkable ability to infuse his songs with sensitivity while radiating hope and promise has endeared him to audiences around the globe.

The magic of Allen Stone lies in his ability to seamlessly blend various musical genres, including soul-pop, folk-rock, R&B, and funk. This musical fusion is evident in his five full-length albums, from his 2010 self-released debut album “Last To Speak” to the more recent 2021 release, “APART.”

Aside from his hectic touring schedule, Stone has made several national television appearances, including gracing the stage of Australia’s RocKwiz, NPR’s Tiny Desk, and even guesting on MTV’s Ridiculousness. He’s also lent his expertise as a mentor for two seasons of ABC’s American Idol. Fresh from a tour with Chris Stapleton, Allen is now back in the studio working on new music, set to be unleashed in 2024.
