Allen Stone Plans Tour, Letterman Appearance and Album Release

Allen Stone plans a busy summer with a Letterman appearance, an extensive North American tour and a wide release of his debut album.

Stone has dates all summer long and will also embark on a fall tour which will feature special guests Tingsek, Sister Sparrow, Yuna, and Selah Sue on select dates.

The 25-year-old soul singer from Chewelah, WA recently signed to ATO Records, which will give his self-titled album its wide release on July 31.Stone will perform on "Late Show with David Letterman" on August 14.
Stone has been on tour ever since he released his album digitally via his own stickystones label last fall. It quickly entered the Top 10 of Billboard's Heatseekers chart and the Top 5 of iTunes' R&B/Soul charts. Performances on "Conan," "Jimmy Kimmel Live," "Last Call with Carson Daly" and "Live from Daryl's House" followed and Esquire, CNN and Billboard named Stone as an artist to watch - all before he had signed with a label.

"With his tangle of blond locks and lumberjack sweater, he looks less like a soul singer and more like someone you'd find selling hemp necklaces in Big Sur," said Forbes.com in a feature exploring his success as an independent artist. "But soon hundreds of slack-jawed hipsters have sheathed their smartphones to listen as he belts out the words to his song 'Unaware,' sounding something like the love child of Stevie Wonder and a resurrected Amy Winehouse, if not better."
