Before the holiday season had wrapped up, The Honey POP had a chance to attend Allen Stone’s sold-out dinner and show at City Winery NYC. We wish we could describe just how magical and captivating it was to be around both an energetic crowd and Allen himself. Hearing songs like ‘Consider Me’ and ‘Brown Eyed Lover,’ we got a full idea of just how vast his discography is and how much soul he puts into his career.
The whole night we got to be serenaded by an acoustic set with two backup vocalists. Allen played the electric and acoustic guitar and piano. Just before this show, he had started his winter tour and was making his way down the east coast. He is still on the An Evening with Allen Stone tour until February this year. We highly suggest you don’t miss out and get a ticket to a show near you, here.
Night two of New York was an absolute dream. We got to hear a good set of songs from his latest album, APART. You best believe that Allen absolutely ate his plate and had seconds. With everyone smitten by his vocal range and runs, there wasn’t a single person that left the venue uninspired. We got the chance to hear ‘American Privilege’ which first premiered off his second album, Radius.
As time has passed since Allen has perfected the way that this deeply enriched tune both lyrically and sonically reaches his audience. You can hear in both versions of this song that his message runs deep. Also during the concert, you could just tell how special and important this song truly has been to everyone.
On another note, Allen had told endless stories of writing his songs and their meanings all night. His exuberance and sunny vibes held through as he laughed along with us. As the show ended, he had a standing ovation and we cheered for an encore. He ended the show with ‘I Know I Wasn’t Right’ and ‘Bed I Made.’ Is it possible to go back? Because we’d go in a heartbeat, just to be (a) part of the crowd again.
