Despite his quirky style and awkward facial expressions, Allen Stone has a surprisingly smooth RnB-inflected voice. The singer/songwriter grew up in a small American rural town and sang at his father's church regularly, but after discovering soul records by Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin, Stone altered his style of music significantly. Since then, Stone has developed a pop-friendly blue-eyed soul sound akin to Jason Mraz and John Mayer, and has quickly built up a fan base at the young age of 24.
