Last night, MSDTV was on the scene live at the Samsung Center which hosted Allen Stone’s performance on behalf of the MBK Entertainment family.  The crowd was filled with his label mates as well as those wanting to see just what Allen Stone had to offer – and boy, did the crowd get what they were looking for…and then some.

At the tender age of 23, Allen Stone has a sound well beyond his years.  Signed to MBK Entertainment with CEO Jeff Robinson (the visionary who discovered and signed R&B sensation, Alicia Keys) – Allen Stone has a lot of people talking.  From Billboard to HITS magazine, Stone is labeled as the next big artist to keep your eyes on, as he is making a lasting impression amongst audiences everywhere he performs.   Unbeknownst to many, Stone released his debut album, “Last To Speak” back in September 2009 which reflects his eclectic ability to cover genres ranging from classic soul, pop, and most notably – hints of folk tied into pure R&B.   Allen Stone has an incredibly refreshing taste to his music despite his appearance – at first glance, he looks like your typical country boy, however, his voice and talent will convince you of otherwise by the end of his act.  Guaranteed.
