Allen Stone ~ “Sleep”
(((folkYEAH!))) Presents is pleased to present Allen Stone in concert at the Miners Foundry on Thursday, June 25, 2015. Allen Stone exhibits an easy grace in blending everything from edgy-soul-pop and earth folk-rock to throwback R&B and Parliament-inspired funk. Dancing concert with limited seating. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. and the show starts at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $22 in Advance and $25 at the Door. Tickets are available online, by phone, or in person at the Miners Foundry, or in person at Briar Patch Co-Op. Ticketing fees may apply.
Like many of his own musical heroes (Stevie Wonder chief among them), Allen Stone pulls off the near-magical feat of channeling a weight-of-the-world sensitivity into his songs while still radiating hope and promise. Stone’s breezily poetic lyrics touch on topics ranging from rampant materialism to the toxic takeover of technology in art. Allen Stone’s newest release Radius features a lush yet raw sonic landscape staying true to his pledge to rely entirely on live instrumentation.
Jon Pareles, chief popular music critic for the New York Times praised Stone for possessing “a tenor voice with the eagerness and frisky syncopation of [Stevie] Wonder.”
