Stephen Sanchez Releases New Song “Evangeline”
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Stephen Sanchez released a new song “Evangeline” on January 25, 2023.
He first performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
The song samples Bobby Goldboro's 1968 single “Honey”.
It ws written by Stephen Sanchez, Bobby Russell, Nick Lobel, and Trent Dabbs. Produced by Nick Lobel.
The accompanying visualizer was directed by Elliot Charoff, Frances O'Sullivan, and Stephen Sanchez.
Stephen Sanchez said of the song, “The song lyrics were written by myself, Trent Dabbs, and Nick Lobel (Sam Smith & Harry Styles). Nick Lobel sampled the 10 second intro of Bobby Goldsboro's song, 'Honey,' and put together a verse and chorus for me to hear in the studio. Once I heard that, I felt immediately inspired. The song came to life in 15 minutes. Sampling is not something I've ever done nor have I felt moved to pursue, but it was honestly a happy accident that day. Even the way I performed it was extremely new for me. This song really made music fun for me again. It's opened a world and lore I'm excited to invite fans into.”
