I would be so quick to go to a church if a pastor was like,
man, I’ve got no idea what happens after death.”
– Allen Stone
Allen Stone joins award-winning guitarist/producer Eric Krasno on his special new podcast series. Presented by Osiris Media, ERIC KRASNO PLUS ONE sees the renowned musician hosting a one-of-a-kind interview series exploring the lives and work of some of his closest friends and musical collaborators.
In Episode 17 of Plus One, Krasno talks with soul singer and bandleader Allen Stone. The son of a preacher, Stone describes how singing in church from the age of three built his musical chops for years before he was exposed to secular music. Once he heard Stevie Wonder’s InnerVisions as a teenager, Stone had found the sound he wanted to emulate. Echoes of Wonder’s and other R&B legends can be heard in each of Stone’s four records.
Krasno and Stone also discuss fatherhood, the lifelong search for contentment with the touring life, and what they tell up-and-coming artists when they’re asked for advice.
Eric Krasno Plus One is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or wherever you get your podcasts. And check out the podcast Festival Circuit: New Orleans, a new podcast about the music of New Orleans and the Jazz Fest from Osiris Media.
Upcoming episodes of Plus One include Phil Lesh, Dominic Lalli (Big Gigantic), Nigel Hall, and more.
