While on tour with Daryl Hall & John Oates and Tears For Fears, Allen Stone will make an exclusive solo stop in Clearwater, headlining the Capitol Theatre on Thursday, June 8 at 8 pm in support of his latest album release, Radius Deluxe. For a complete list of tour dates, please visit www.allenstone.com. On his third full-length album, soul artist Allen Stone proves himself deeply devoted to making uncompromisingly soulful music that transcends all pop convention.
Made in collaboration with Swedish soul singer/songwriter/phenom Magnus Tingsek, Radius captures the warm energy of that creative connection and transports the listener to a higher and more exalted plane. Just last year, ATO Records released Radius Deluxe, which includes a second disc of 7 bonus tracks that didn’t make the original record release.
Radius marks the follow-up to the Chewelah, Washington-bred 28-year-old’s self-released and self-titled 2011 sophomore effort that climbed to the top 10 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart. As 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.”
Culled from several dozen songs penned through a year and a half of constant writing and refining, Radius Deluxe bears a title that reflects both its scope and intimacy. When it comes to the new bonus tracks Stone added, “I am very excited for Bed I Made to finally be released to the public. It’s a song that has long been a favorite of my audience and I’m glad that they will finally have a studio version.”
“I think you really grow as a musician when you’re playing right in front of people, and for me constantly growing and progressing and getting better is really the most important thing,” Stone says.
