Lionel Richie, an American Idol judge, was sincerely inspired by Allen Stone. When Stone and participant Dennis Lorenzo sang “Unaware” as a duet, he stood up. Stone, one of our favorite up-and-coming musicians, entered the stage wearing a unique orange hat, a pair of spectacles with a black rim, and a folky blues sound that was flawless.

Who is Allen Stone?
This young R&B singer/songwriter is 31 years old and is from Chewelah, Washington. He begged at the age of three. Early in his adolescence, he began playing the guitar and conducting worship. He developed a love for classic songs from the 1960s and 1970s, and Stevie Wonder’s music completely blew him away.
Stone made the decision to pursue a career in music after being inspired by a friend who started a career in music at a young age. He relocated to Seattle, Washington, and has since established a reputation for himself.
Stone enjoys speaking his mind and having others listen. His silky, soulful music is influenced by greats like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, and Aretha Franklin. He self-released his debut record in 2010 under the name “Last to Speak.” ATO Records signed him, and in 2012 he issued “Unaware – Allen Stone – Live From His Mother’s Living Room.” The songs on this CD were written in collaboration with Andy Grammer. Nearly 7 million people have watched a live music performance of “Unaware” on YouTube. Stone’s third album, “Radius,” was released in 2015 via Capitol Records.
Stone started his national promotional tour. He participated in the Hall & Oates “Tears for Fears” tour last summer. He has appeared on talk shows like The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Conan. The song “Neon Cathedral” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis includes a verse by Stone.
Stone’s most recent single to be released is “Brown Eyed Lover.” It is accessible worldwide, including on Apple and Spotify. On May 20 at the Bing Crosby Theater, Allen Stone will perform as Andrew McMahon’s opener for The Wilderness. In Portland, Oregon, on October 11, 2018, he kicks off his headline autumn tour.
On April 16, Stone sang Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” with participant Marcio Donaldson on the American Idol stage. Check out Allen Stone’s TEDx lecture if you enjoyed his American Idol performance.
