Soul and R&B artist Allen Stone has proven himself deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends all pop convention. His vocals and melodic style show the clear influence of classic soul and R&B of the 1960s and ’70s, while his lyrics reveal an idealism and passion that recall the folk-inspired singer/songwriters of the same era. The New York Times recently said Stone’s lyrics “promise honest sentiments, grooves built with physical instruments and a gospel-rooted determination to uplift … glimmers of Al Green, Bill Withers, Curtis Mayfield, George Clinton, Prince and a bit of Sting.”
With a reputation for powerful live shows and in support of his latest recording, Radius, Allen Stone will be hitting off his new tour with a date in Portland at The Roseland Theater, 10 NW Sixth Avenue, on Thursday, October 11. Tickets for this performance are sold out, but can still be found through various ticket brokers in town (please be wary of who you purchase tickets through and expect high prices). Show time is 8:00 pm, open to all ages. Nick Waterhouse opens the show.
