This week on SMI Radio, I am pleased to bring you a very interesting conversation with one of Seattle’s hottest artists, the silky smooth and soulful Allen Stone. I caught up with the pitch perfect crooner via telephone while he was out on the east coast doing his thing, barnstorming across the US of A bringing his brand of blue-eyed soul to the masses.
We spoke about his music, the music business, his influences and what it was like to sing with one of his musical heroes, Daryl Hall and his upcoming appearance this week on Live From Daryl’s House.
In addition I will also feature selected cuts off of his newest release.
Allen will return to the Northwest this spring to play more shows on both sides of the mountains including an appearance at Sasquatch 2012. Here is Allen’s complete tour schedule.
Allen is a very cool and articulate cat. If you like good music, sweet soul music, this is one episode that you will not want to miss.
You can read SMI featured contributor Timmy Held’s review for Allen’s show at Rawspace this past January right here.
In the second half of the show, Sean Hensley and Gabe Mira come into the studio to talk about their company Setlist Music Solutions.
We talk about the services their company offers to artists and folks in the music business, some exciting ventures they are involved in and their mission to bring the community and scene together with a pro-artists and pro-community philosophy.
SMI Radio can be heard each week…
