19 AUGUST 2022 (TORONTO, ON) – Emerging as one of the year’s fastest-rising breakthrough talents, buzzing Nashville-based singer and songwriter Stephen Sanchez debuts his highly-anticipated new EP, Easy On My Eyes, today via Mercury Records/Republic Records/Universal Music Canada, the country's leading music company. Listen to Easy On My Eyes HERE.
In addition to Stephen’s global smash “Until I Found You,” the seven track EP includes his luminous new single “See The Light.” On the song, acoustic guitar brushes up against his swooning vocals. A gorgeous hook takes flight above handclaps highlighted by a powerful crescendo with timeless grace and palpable energy.
Across Easy On My Eyes, Stephen recounts an unbelievable year since his emergence. He wrote nearly all of the songs on the EP himself and teamed up with Jamie Hartman [James Bay, Lewis Capaldi] and Jon Green [Lady A, Little Big Town] on “Hey Girl.” He then worked with producers Ian Fitchuk [Kacey Musgraves, James Bay] and Konrad Snyder [Madi Diaz, Rainbow Kitten Surprise] in Nashville to bring the EP to life in one-take performances. The project illuminates his talent both as a vocalist and a songwriter.
Regarding Easy On My Eyes, Stephen commented, “Love is a scary thing. On the EP, the themes are cohesive. Giving attention to the sides of those afraid to fall in love, those learning to trust in love, and those reflecting on what could’ve been done to change the ending. Love is human and as humans, we’ll never be perfect, even though it’s something we all strive for. For me, all of the pain humanizes love. There’s a balance in the music because of that.”
Stirring up excitement for the project’s arrival, Stephen continued to reach new career highs throughout the summer. “Until I Found You” has amassed nearly 640 million global streams to date across all platforms, is RIAA Certified Gold, just hit #5 at AAA Radio this week, and continues to climb up the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Recently, he shared the 1950’s-inspired music video for the single (watch it HERE), which Rolling Stone exclusively gave a first look to and has collected over 20 million views since its release. He also delivered show-stopping performances of the song on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers, and meanwhile, sold out headline shows in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC, Nashville, and more.
Next up, Stephen will hit the road with Vermont singer/songwriter Noah Kahan on his “Stick Season” North American Tour. The tour kicks off on October 12th in Charleston, SC and runs through the end of November. Tickets are on-sale now, see the full list of tour dates below and at www.stephensanchezofficial.com/tour.

ABOUT STEPHEN SANCHEZ:
With a dusty baritone as bright as an eternally lit jukebox and tattooed fingers around the fretboard of a rare guitar, Stephen Sanchez tunes into longing and love with the acuity of a tried-and-tested troubadour—yet he’s only 19-years-old. Transcending eras, he writes the kind of songs that can play just as well from your parent’s vintage record player as they could from the main stages of festivals a la Bonnaroo. If somebody told you he just pulled up from the fifties in a gorgeous Caddy, you’d have a hard time disputing it. As the story goes, he initially stirred up early buzz with his very first upload “Lady By The Sea,” going viral on social media and establishing rapport with audiences. Not long after, his original breakout “Until I Found You” properly introduced a spirited signature style. Anchored by a dreamy croon and breezy guitar wrapped in silky harmonies, it tallied over 235 million Spotify streams between the original, piano version, and duet with gold-certified pop singer and songwriter Em Beihold. Meanwhile, it cracked the Billboard Hot 100 chart as his monthly listenership on Spotify exploded to the tune of 17 million. He also delivered jaw-dropping renditions of “Until I Found You” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers. Finding his way into the hearts of countless fans worldwide, he continues to captivate on his 2022 EP, Easy On My Eyes [Mercury Records/Republic Records] and more to come.
