Allen Stone playing free Cosmo show

Search around on YouTube and you can find clips of Allen Stone performing with his band from the living room of his mother’s house.

It’s a fitting setting for Stone’s heart-on-the-sleeve soul: intimate and unguarded.

Stone’s got a voice you won’t forget, alternately warm and wounded, stirring and flecked with vulnerability like a spider-cracked windshield.

He’s only 23, but there’s a lifetime of longing distilled in the man’s tunes.
