This Australian singer-songwriter Angus Stone is one-half of the Julia Stone duo. But in Utah he’s on his own. During a recent interview, Stone says he lives a "yin-and-yang" life. When not on tour, he lives on a farm where he raises cattle and bees. His new album, "Broken Brights," was released in July, and it represents a way to express who he really is. "Now, it’s just me behind the wheel," he said. "There’s a bit more spontaneity. There’s almost no filter. It’s actually quite liberating." While Stone likes to surround himself with nature, he said the writing process involves a set pattern that is quite unlike his normal life. "I definitely lock myself and fall down the rabbit hole," he said. But now that he is in "hyperdrive" on tour, he enjoys driving around the West, especially Utah. "Every time we roll in, it’s cinematic scenery," he said. And finally, this piece of trivia: When Stone signs his contracts, he includes a rider requesting footwear. "All I ask for is for some clean socks." Bring some to the show and toss them onstage.
