"Allow me to be blunt: Allen Stone has the best effing voice I’ve ever heard, and there’s no two ways about it. Perhaps it’s because Allen is literally the son of a preacher man or because he was raised on gospel music, but Stone seems to possess one of the most powerful set of pipes we’ve heard in a hot sec. And the public agrees: Allen’s new self-titled album hasn’t even been out a measly 48 hours, and it’s already No. 2 on iTunes’ R&B/Soul Charts. Oh, and did we mention he’s still unsigned? Baller status." – MTV

"Allen Stone, a 24-year-old Seattle songwriter, was an unabashed throwback when he performed at a packed S.O.B.’s on Wednesday night. He talked about cellphones and social networks and sang about, among other things, the clout of the Christian right and a culture of greed. But his music reached back four decades to the late 1960s and early ’70s, when songwriters like Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Bill Withers brought introspection and social commentary to soul music." – New York Post

"The 24-year-old former church boy from tiny Chewelah, Wash. has just self-released his third album on iTunes, and it’s meant for those of us who like our R&B slightly unkempt and exceedingly feelingful. Stone’s earning attention partly because his blond hippie-coder visage (he freely admits to being "kind of a peculiar looking human being") so drastically contrasts with his charged, virile vocalisms."-NPR
