At age 22, Allen Stone self-released his debut album, but it was his self-titled follow-up with Miles Davis’ keyboardist Deron Johnson that earned him serious recognition. Along with scoring in the top five on iTunes’ R&B/Soul chart, Allen appeared on Conan and David Letterman, graced the pages of publications like the New York Times, and even opened for Al Green. In the midst of all the buzz, he took up a grueling touring schedule, tearing through nearly 600 shows in just two years. His new album, Radius, dropped last spring.
We are so excited to have Allen headline our annual fundraiser on March 19 at the Fillmore!
