Description: <p>Allen Stone is an R&amp;B / soul singer from Chewelah, WA. The son of the pastor of the local church, he was immersed in gospel from an early age until he found funk and soul as a teenager through Stevie Wonder&rsquo;s Innversions. Billboard has praised his &ldquo;disarmingly soulful vocals&rdquo; and WXPN says &quot;his energetic shows, plus his warm and evocative albums, explain why Stone has such a solid fan base&quot;. Allen released his 3rd studio album in 2019 called Building Balance that includes hit songs Brown Eyed Lover, Sunny Days, and Consider Me. Building Balance is a textured amalgam of R&amp;B and soul, which saw Stone draw inspiration from &lsquo;70s funk and punctuate his music with modern pop flourishes. His latest release, a cover of Bob Marley&rsquo;s &ldquo;Is This Love&rdquo;, is the first song off his upcoming acoustic album APART, due to releases Nov 12th. &ldquo;This album was a way to pay homage to the songs that have been my foundational support for the last decade, and to also pay homage to all the people who&rsquo;ve loved these songs over the years,&rdquo; says Stone. He has performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, as well as the Special Olympics opening ceremony, NPR&rsquo;s Tiny Desk, and has been a guest mentor on American Idol.</p>
