ALL PHOTOS BY DUSTIN DOWNING
Allen Stone is incredibly down-to- earth and grateful that he gets to sing for a living – something that was apparent from the minute we met him in the parking lot at 8am for load in until the minute he walked out the door.
The self-described hippie from rural Washington is charming enough before he starts to sing, but once he gets on stage, he wins over anyone within listening distance with his soulful sound.
We were thrilled to get him back in studio around his latest release – the deluxe edition of “Radius” – and he alsotreated us to a brand new song.
His love for Stevie Wonder comes through more than ever on “Naturally”.
Be sure to watch the full session — one of the best endings of any MBE session I’ve witnessed in a decade.
