He has released three records, Last to Speak (2010, self-released), the self-titled Allen Stone (2011, ATO Records), and Radius (2015, Capitol Records). Radius was also re-released by ATO Records in 2016 as a deluxe edition with seven additional tracks.
Stone had been touring cross-country for a few years and sold a self-released album on the Internet. However, it was not until October 2011, when his second album was released, that his career began to truly kick off. On this album, he was backed by Raphael Saadiq‘s rhythm section and Miles Davis‘ keyboardist Deron Johnson. A few songs on “Allen Stone” were co-written with Andy Grammer.
“Allen Stone” peaked at the number 2 spot on the R&B/Soul charts on iTunes and hit #9 and #35 on the Billboard Heatseekers and R&B/Hip Hop Album charts, respectively. USA Today called Allen Stone a “pitch-perfect powerhouse”
On October 26, 2011, he performed his song “Unaware” on Conan.
Stone was voted one of mtvU’s Freshman 5 in late 2012 and tapped as VH1’s first “You Oughta Know” artist of 2013.
Then on January 3, 2013, he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and sang “Sleep”.
Radius, his first album for Capitol Records, was released on May 26, 2015. It was recorded in collaboration with Magnus Tingsek, and features production from Malay (record producer) and Benny Cassette. Allen Stone said of the album title, “The radius is that line extending from the center of the circle to its exterior, and in a lot of ways this album is about getting out things deep inside—whether it’s love or insecurity or joy or frustration about things going on today.” On March 25, 2016, Radius was released as a deluxe edition by ATO Records with seven additional tracks.
Allen also appeared on American Idol 2018 to sing duets with multiple contestants.
