Welcome to COSIGN, where I’ll present a group of fresh and invigorating talent that does more than just add to the conversation of who’s next, they advance it! There’s something intangible they possess. It’s more than just hustle. This collective group simmer on the edge of fame and notoriety not only because of their skill and ambition, but because they did more than just wish on a star.
In a business where so much weight is placed on the image of an up and coming artist, it’s rather refreshing to see an artist make moves solely based on his talent. Allen Stone is such an artist. People never quite connect Stone’s look to his voice. When he walked into the GIANTlife offices for our interview, he definitely had people looking at us like we were crazy for bringing a random white guy with thick hipster glasses into the studio to sing some soul music. However, for days after the interview was complete, Stone’s name seemed to roll of the lips of almost all of the head scratching employees in an astonished manner. more than a few colleagues said, “That boy can really sing! I never knew white boys had it like that!” Allen Stone does have it like that. He’s all talent, drive, and ambition. Find out why the GIANTlife writers went crazy over the blue-eyed soul singer. In doing so, you’ll realize you haven’t listened to contemporary soul with a retro spin until you’ve heard the Seattle, Washington native.
