Allen Stone was raised in the small town of Chewelah, Washington. He grew up on gospel music, spending much of his childhood as a pastor’s son watching his parents lead their congregation in song. By the time he was 11, he’d picked up a guitar, wrote his first song and soon began self-recording demo tapes to pass along to classmates. After dropping out of college, he moved to Seattle to kickstart his music career, often driving up and down the west coast in his ’87 Buick to play any and all gigs he could. He quickly developed a reputation for powerful live shows, playing up to 200 dates a year. And, in the years since, Allen has built a devoted following on the strength of his near-magical ability to channel a weight-of-the-world sensitivity into his songs while still radiating hope and promise. His easy grace in blending everything from edgy soul-pop and earthy folk-rock to throwback R&B and Parliament-inspired funk is reflected in his five full length albums–from his 2010 self-released debut album Last To Speak to 2021’s APART, an intimate album recorded in a converted cabin during the pandemic. Stone has continued to keep a constant touring schedule and has appeared numerous times on national television including performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Today Show, and is the mentor on this season of American Idol. You can expect to hear new music from Stone later this year and 2023.

With Dakota Jones

Dakota Jones is a New York based band that’s been stomping around and making noise for nearly 8 years now. Featuring Tristan Carter-Jones on vocals, Scott Jet Kramp on bass, Steve Ross on the drums, and Eddy Marshall on the guitar, Dakota Jones have molded their sound into something at once commanding and vulnerable, spontaneous and deliberate, familiar and refreshing. The groove erupted in 2015, and they haven’t looked back since, following that gritty funky sound wherever it would take them – through some of NYC’s most respected venues, on tours exploring America’s coasts, and well beyond. Press play on Dakota Jones, and follow the dripping honey through the sights and sounds that they’re serving.
