Radius may be Allen Stone's third album, but for many listeners, the Capitol Records debut is their first introduction to the singer. Critics and audiences alike have taken to the new album thanks to songs like "Upside" and "Freedom." But as our Senior Editor D-Money recently opined, "...if you really want to get to feel the singer's power, you have got to see him do his thing live." We've been fans for the past five years and have caught quite a few of his shows, so trust us on this one. Luckily, Mr. Stone is giving fans several chances to catch him in concert this fall.
Stone and his crew got warmed up with a mini spring tour leading up to the album's late-May release. Gearing up for a more extensive tour this time around, he's bringing along some SoulBounce faves that have got us screaming, "Shut up and take my money!" Alt-R&B artist and lo-fi auteur JMSN will join him for an unforgettable set of shows during October. GRAMMY-nominated Scandinavian one-man band Bernhoft will tap in for the second leg of the tour to captivate audiences with his unique brand of soul. As an added bonus for Northwestern fans, up-and-coming Portland outfit My Brothers & I will open the last two shows with a lively infusion of soul-tinged indie-pop.
Check out the flyer below for a full list of Radius Tour dates, and head over to Stone's website to purchase tickets. He will also appear as a featured artist at the SoundHarvest Music Festival in Nashville, TN on October 17th (use code "Freedom" for a discount on tickets). If you need further convincing (as if!), scroll down to peep his earlier performance of "Freezer Burn" on top of the Capitol Records Tower. Stone's Radius, Bernhoft's Islander, JMSN's JMSN (Blue Album) and My Brothers & I's Don't Dream Alone are all currently available for purchase.
