When viral hit maker Stephen Sanchez was growing up and visiting his grandparents, they would send him out to the barn. Luckily for us, the barn was full of old vinyl – records from Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, The Platters, and Roy Orbison. Touching the needle to the groove opened up a world of croon that would set Sanchez in a different musical direction than most of his peers.

While he’s already had several hit songs, Angel Face is Sanchez’s debut record. It continues to solidify his old soul style and keen ability to write relatable tunes about giving someone your heart and having that heart ache.

Listen along to Angel Face from Stephen Sanchez as your album of the week.
