Paste's Poolside Sessions in Los Angeles: Allen Stone

Music  |  Video

Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival is one of the biggest live music events in the country, growing so large that in recent years the festival has expanded to two weekends of genre-crossing musical innovation and constant surprises.

While Paste was out in California for the festival, we were able to catch some relaxing sessions by the pool with some of our favorite festival artists. We had the privilege of meeting up with Allen Stone, the soulful singer-songwriter who last graced us with a few songs at Hangout 2012. Accompanied by a guitarist and keeping time with soft hand claps, Stone’s vocals were on-point amidst the sunny Hollywood Hills backdrop.

Watch Allen Stone perform “Contact High” for Paste’s Poolside Sessions in Los Angeles.
