The Soul’d Out Music Festival is proud to present a night of forward looking Soul music, featuring two of the hottest up and coming acts in the country. Hailing from Washington state, Allen Stone has taken the inter-webs by storm with instant-viral videos, turning everyone who hears him into immediate fans. His unbelievable voice and incredible backing band have garnered serious buzz in an industry often cynical with its Soul; having already appeared on national television and being added to the national Sharon Jones & Daryl Hall tour, has Allen Stone and crew poised to be the break-out band of 2012.
Snarky Puppy is a who’s who of industry heavyweights and major players. The core of the group features Grammy Award-winners Robert “Sput” Searight on drums (God’s Property, Snoop Dogg) and Shaun Martin on keys (Kirk Franklin, Erykah Badu). Led by award-winning bassist/composer Michael League, Snarky Puppydelivers raw funk and sensitive dynamics, relentless pocket and lyrical melodicism, lush harmony and soulful simplicity, and most importantly, a delicate mixture of composition and improvisation.
Worth has quickly established himself as a leader in the Portland neo-soul movement. As a member of local luminaries NIAYH, he toured the country gaining national recognition —- now with his much-anticipated solo release pending, Worth looks to take things to the next level.
