On Wednesday February 27th, Allen Stone brought his Building Balance tour to Asbury Lanes for some inspiration, peace, and love all wrapped up in his amazing catalog of soul music. The intimate bowling alley was the perfect setting allowing Allen to do what he does best, connect with his audience and fans. Also, like so many artists who make yearly stops in Asbury Park, the great music fans of this city came out to connect with him. The history and perseverance of this great little music town, shows many artists why it's such a great place to make stops year after year, tour after tour.

Allen Stone burst on to the music scene in 2011 gaining popularity from his self-entitled album Allen Stone. His fan base grew on tracks like “Unaware,” and collaborations with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The Sophomore album climbed to the top 10 on billboard’s heat seekers chart and the music community was beginning to realize the power, connection, and energy that was radiating from his music. During this time, Allen played 600 shows over two years and really learned that connecting with the people you were performing in front of every night was the biggest way to grow as a musician.

This show was no different. The intimate nature of Asbury Lanes and the amazing showmanship of Allen and his band allowed for another classic night of music down the shore. The band focused on material from the new album like tracks “Consider Me” and “Sunny Days,” but also stuck in those fan favorites and back catalog gems like “Unaware” and “Where You're At.” With his amazing band and absolutely beautiful voice, Allen Stone is a must see live act in today's music scene. He seems to approach every show with this goal of making every single person in the venue happy. Allen Stone and the Building Balance tour will continue for the rest of this week with multiple shows throughout the tristate area. Be sure to check out the new album Building Balance.
