One of the many things I enjoy about my role as DJ for WLOY, Loyola’s college radio station, is the opportunity to speak with artists about their music, their lives, and their passions, and to share this with our listeners.
Recently, my co-host/roommate/confidant Kat O’Brien and I had opportunity to sit down (virtually first, physically later) with Allen Stone. Allen Stone is a national recording artist from Oregon, who is soulful and sweet and everything you’d expect him to be from his picture—and more.
We had a great phone interview with him a few weeks before his show in Baltimore. We dug down deep and asked him some serious questions, including about his hair and his taste in hats. You can listen to the interview here.
Allen has been on an international tour for his new album, Radius, which came out this summer. He was accompanied in Baltimore by Bernhoft, an internationally renowned musician who has been with him for the Southern and Northeast American leg of the tour.
We went to their show on November 11 at the Baltimore Soundstage, a fantastic local venue for anyone looking for known and unknown musical acts throughout the year.
In a word, the show was unforgettable.
