Allen Stone

Allen Stone’s father was a pastor, and it was in his choir that the now-25-year-old learned how to stomp his feet, clap his hands and, more importantly, hone his high-flying falsetto. Growing up, Stone discovered classic soul from Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin, which is noticeable in his socially conscious, heartfelt music; it’s the music of yesteryear, today. With an R&B band full of hard-hitters, Stone performed a late-night set at SXSW, which I caught this year, and his gut-wrenching, soul-soaked jams had me floored, even with the glut of music I had already seen. The kid’s music has grip.
