One to Watch: Allen Stone, Singer, 25
Friday 01 February 2013
Could he be the real deal? The curly-haired US soul singer has been likened to Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye for his high falsetto voice.
The son of a preacher man, he grew up in Washington singing in his local church. Having toured the US in a van, he now releases his debut album in the UK on 25 February. He released it digitally in the US on his own label in 2011 before he was signed to Universal; even then it entered the Top 5 of iTunes R&B/soul charts.
