About Stephen Sanchez
Stephen Sanchez has materialized at the forefront of popular culture with a sound that’s as timeless as it is necessary for the times. It’s easy to sway into the embrace of his breezy baritone stylings, warm guitar phrasing, and untouchable charisma. His music is also an eternal bright spot illuminated by a belief that the kind of romance and love we used to see on the silver screen is still possible. Barely in his twenties, the singer, songwriter, guitarist, and producer has already enchanted audiences everywhere. His breakout single “Until I Found You” went multi-platinum, vaulted into the Top 25 of the Billboard Hot 100, and generated over 2 billion streams powered by the original, piano version, and duet with gold-certified pop singer and songwriter Em Beihold. Most recently, the track became RIAA 3x Platinum Certified. He delivered much talked-about performances on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Late Night with Seth Meyers, and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Meanwhile, he also sold out successive headline tours and earned acclaim from Billboard, Consequence, and more. He was even invited by Sir Elton John to perform “Until I Found You” at Elton’s last show ever headlining Glastonbury. Recently, his performance of the track was nominated for PUSH Performance of the Year at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. Now, he spins a story unlike anything you’ve ever heard (or seen) on his 2023 full-length debut, Angel Face [Mercury Records/Republic Records] introduced by the single “Be More,” out now.
The record tells the tale of “The Troubadour Sanchez” a fictional musician who blew up in 1958 with “Until I Found You,” lit up popular culture, and was tragically gunned down in 1964 after falling in love with a mob boss’s girlfriend, Evangeline. However, his long-lost debut has been unearthed 59 years later in the form of Angel Face.
