Behind the Scenes with Singer-Songwriter Allen Stone

It turns out, Interior Design Editor in Chief Cindy Allen’s eye for design talent extends to an ear for soulful musicians. She recently had a private powwow with R&B singer-songwriter Allen Stone, who was in town during the East Coast portion of his tour for his latest album, Building Balance. The two congregated in the penthouse of Fotografiska New York, the former church-cum-new photography museum featured on page 160, for singing and scintillating conversation. That duet has inaugurated Creative Voices, our video series exploring the 
intersection of design with various artistic 
mediums. Next up is…stay tuned.
