Allen Stone has shot up the R&B/Soul charts on iTunes, peaking at the number 2 spot, and hit #9 and #62 on the Billboard Heatseekers and R&B/Hip Hop Album charts, respectively, and has garnered national praise – USA Today called him a “pitch-perfect powerhouse”. He has sold-out tour dates in numerous markets under his belt including Seattle, San Francisco, Washington DC, New York, and Los Angeles. A performance on Conan on October 26 along with his emphasis on live performances has landed nods from the Washington Post, New York Times, Grantland, and others – all without any support of a label, publisher, or publicist. He is playing The Loft, Oct. 4th.
