Six days/five nights might sound like a vacation package, but soul man Allen Stone won’t be kicking back. He will be performing in Seattle all next week during his ambitious and unprecedented five-show run, part of the promotion of his long-awaited Capitol Records debut album, Radius.
Stone’s evolution began in the small town of Chewelah, Washington where the church and his parent’s living room served as his stage. But Stone has said he thinks of Seattle as his second home, and the city happily lays claim to him as well, having supported and watched him move from the living room to worldwide stages.
As part of the launch of Greenlight Media and Marketing’s Evolution of an Artist series, the five-concert series will preview and celebrate Stone’s signing and debut of Radius on May 26. This concert series will feature different artists in cities near and dear to their development. Stone was selected to kick off the series, which traces his rise to national status.
Radius, has been a long time coming. Stone picked the title, explaining that “the radius is that line extending from the center of the circle to its exterior. In a lot of ways, this album is about getting out things deep inside – whether it’s love or insecurity, joy or frustration about things going on today.”
Stone has selected a different local up-and-coming artist as an opener each night. As of this writing, there are limited tickets available.
April 13: It seems fitting that the first show is at The Triple Door, a venue that embraced him in his early years with his first appearance there in 2008. The bewitching pop singer/songwriter Maiah Manser will open. This show will also be filmed and streamed LIVE to seriously ill kids and teens in collaboration with The Melodic Caring Project. The live stream will be hosted by SMI Founder and Creative Director, Greg Roth and MCP Co-Founder and artist Levi Ware.
Seattle Music Insider will be exclusively covering all of the shows this week and will provide a written and photo wrap up next week.
