Stephen Sanchez is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter based in Nashville, TN. Not too long ago, he released a charismatic indie-pop tune, entitled, \u201cUntil I Found You,\u201d via Republic Records.\r\n\r\nStephen Sanchez - \u201cUntil I Found You\u201d single\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cWhen I met my girlfriend, Georgia, I was in the worst place ever. She was so loving and great to me though. I didn\u2019t feel good enough for that, so I pushed her away. We spent some time apart. She was in Virginia. I was in California. A month before I moved to Nashville, we reconnected over the phone. I drove up, took her on a date, and we\u2019ve been together ever since. I wrote \u2018Until I found You\u2019 to let her know how much I love her. And to let her know I knew how much of an idiot I was when I let her go the first time.\u201d \u2013 Stephen Sanchez explained\r\n\r\n\u2018Until I Found You\u2019 blends blissful doo-wop melodies with breezy guitar and delicate tambourine. With enough sweet summer soul to make Roy Orbison smile, the momentum builds towards a swooning refrain as Stephen Sanchez admits, \u201cI used to say I would never fall in love until I found her.\u201d Furthermore, \u201cUntil I Found You\u201d arrives on the heels of Sanchez\u2019s previously released single, \u201cKayla,\u201d a paean to unrequited love.\r\n\r\nStephen Sanchez - \u201cKayla\u201d\r\n https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sS3cRaKi4rM\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cTwo years ago, I had a massive crush on a girl named Kayla. She didn\u2019t like me back, but I was determined to win her over. I wrote her this song, recorded it on GarageBand, sent it to her, but we weren\u2019t destined to be together. Kayla was part of my life over the past year though, so the song had a place in this body of work.\u201d \u2013 Stephen Sanchez explained\r\n\r\nStephen Sanchez wrote \u201cKayla\u201d and recruited Ian Fitchuck (Kacey Musgraves) for production in Nashville. As the story goes, he had just gotten out of a relationship and penned the tune about a female friend, Kayla, who he\u2019d long harbored unspoken feelings for. She loved the song but had moved away. Now, this story of unrequited love paves the way for his upcoming debut EP, \u201cWhat Was, Not Now,\u201d executive produced by Fitchuck, and will be released late in 2021.\r\n\r\nStephen Sanchez\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cI\u2019m just a guy who sits in his bedroom and writes devastatingly heartbreaking songs. My songs have always been written and played in my room. It\u2019s such an intimate place in and of itself. You sleep in there. You spend time with the people you love in there. It\u2019s so inspiring and honest. With this record, I\u2019m inviting people into that space.\u201d \u2013 Stephen Sanchez explained\r\n\r\nSanchez fell in love with music the old-fashioned way. While visiting his maternal grandparents\u2019 house, he spent countless hours rifling through an old barn where he dug up original vinyl from the likes of Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, The Platters, and The Ink Spots. He\u2019d bring those classics home and spin them on his turntable. Meanwhile, his dad\u2019s father played guitar and penned songs.\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cWhen you listen to those old records from the fifties and the sixties, they sound like they\u2019re coming from another dimension. The songs were simple but profound, romantic, and beautiful. It sparked a desire to write what I was hearing. To me, songwriting is like taking a memory and putting it in a projector for everyone to see.\u201d \u2013 Stephen Sanchez explained\r\n\r\nNot long after, Sanchez picked up a guitar and cut his teeth with covers. Eventually, he grabbed a pen.\r\n\r\nStephen Sanchez\r\n Amanda Ruth photos\r\n\r\n\u201cI was going through plenty of life changes, first love, heartbreak, and all of that. I needed to talk about it from my perspective.\u201d \u2013 Stephen Sanchez added\r\n\r\nOldies music may have piped through his home, but Sanchez eventually discovered Foster The People and Cage The Elephant on the radio. In high school, he developed a reputation as \u201cthe kid who played guitar and wrote songs.\u201d During June 2020, he posted a TikTok cover of Cage The Elephant\u2019s \u201cCigarette Day Dreams,\u201d and it exploded with over 161K views. Shortly after, he built an audience through a steady stream of content, attracting over 122K followers on TikTok.\r\nAfter sharing a snippet of \u201cLady By The Sea,\u201d multiplatinum singer and songwriter Jeremy Zucker reached out and offered to produce the official version for Stephen.\r\n\r\nStephen Sanchez \u2013 \u201cLady by the Sea\u201d\r\n https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUZW6J_rGZo\r\nSanchez has created a following for himself after posting \u201cLady By The Sea,\u201d which racked up over five million Spotify streams and over two million views on TikTok. Since then, he has reached over two million likes on the platform, has over 125,000 fans, and has amassed over eight million views across all videos posted. Also, he landed a sweet deal with Republic Records. Furthermore, Sanchez will be playing Bonnaroo - his first time playing and attending a festival.\r\n\r\n\u201cUntil I Found You\u201d single\r\n\r\nWe recommend adding Stephen Sanchez\u2019s \u201cUntil I Found You\u201d single to your favorite indie-pop playlist.
