The hippyish soul singer Allen Stone is an intense performer. His energetic shows, plus his warm and evocative albums, explain why Stone has such a solid fan base. His recording career has had its ups and downs, though: After the success of his self-titled 2011 album, he was signed by Capitol Records but felt he received little institutional support. This year, ATO reissued Stone's 2015 album Radius with additional tracks.

In a conversation with David Dye, Stone discusses both the business and the art of making music. Hear the session at the audio link above.
