Allen Stone (w/ Guest Elle King) @ SOB’s Summer Splash Concert Cruise
Tickets Available at Ticketweb
On Tuesday, July 30, SOB’s Summer Splash Series is bringing you Allen Stone, the small town, Washington raised soul singer whose eclectic persona and undeniable talent are earning him a cult following across America. Tickets are available through Ticketweb. More information on the Summer Splash Concert Cruise series can be found at summersplashconcertcruises.com
Evidenced in the old school essence of his music, Stone got his start in soul in the most old school fashion: singing in his parent’s church. He digitally released his first album, Last to Sleep, in 2010, but it was his second album, 2011’s Allen Stone, that prompted the buzz escalating around him today. Despite being self-released, the album made it to #2 on iTunes’ R&B/Soul chart, in addition to appearing on two different Billboard charts. Performances on shows like Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live further propelled him, and he is now signed with ATO Records, who re-released Allen Stone in 2012 to a wider audience.
Stone’s thoughtful and conscious lyrics defy his young 25 years, breaching subjects far beyond the expected ones of love and loss. Songs like “Unaware” and “Contact High” delve into the current economical and technological climates, respectively, proving his capabilities in poignant social commentary. Not to worry; though Stone views music as a vehicle to carry messages and spur change, he also wants people to just have a good time, evidenced in tracks like the infectious “Say So.” As part of a national tour that’s quickly selling out, his Summer Splash performance will leave you uplifted, inspired, and, undoubtedly, wanting to hear even more Allen Stone.
