Watch List: Love Has Allen Stone All Kinds Of Topsy-Turvy In 'Upside'
Washington native Allen Stone has progressed in the last few years from doing the artistic hard yards honing his sound in Seattle to being hailed by the likes of NPR, Rolling Stone and The New York Times as a soul-man extraordinaire and gracing stages the likes of Conan, Letterman and SXSW. With his passionate, soulfully gritty vocals and 'heart-on-the-sleeve' lyrical honesty and insight being fueled by his conviction that 'I absolutely believe that if you’re going to stand at a microphone and say something, you need to recognize that as a privilege. You’ve got to be incredibly careful about it, and really put all your heart into the message that you’re sending out into the world', Stone has proved over his last two albums that his is the kind of talent that is universally resonant in its authenticity and appeal. Gearing up for the release of his third album, 'Radius', via Capitol Records, and while he continues with a relentless tour schedule - in a two year span he once played nearly six hundred live shows - he has just released the aptly illustrated, hybrid lyric/live video for the emotional twists and turns that love's confusing gravity has him feeling on his new single, 'Upside'.
