TEEF and Soul
Take a good look at this man.
Look at that grin. The flow. Those spectacles.
This man is Allen Stone. Deep inside this man, who describes himself as, “A hippie with a soul,” is indeed, something powerful. He sounds like he should look like Aretha Franklin. I’d love to see someone’s face who’s only heard him, go see him in concert. HUH! This Washington-state-white-boy with crazy teef has more soul than chicken noodle soup. Listen, hear. Listen here. (right after the 4-minute mark, it gets loco (Spanish for crazy))
GOODNESS! Don’t say I didn’t warn you! It’s hard to believe. I guess that’s a bit racist in a way, but it’s honest. Homie is currently working on his major record debut for Capitol, which should be out this summer. And it will be tasty.
Mister Stone is also on the move, letting that soulful bird of a voice fly all over the world.
