Stephen Sanchez’s December feature in Vestal magazine captures the essence of an artist whose style and substance pay homage to the rich musical traditions of the 1950s and 1960s while forging a contemporary path that’s uniquely his own.

The photographs by Kevin Sinclair, brimming with a retro allure, reflect the timeless aesthetic that Sanchez embodies, with the stylings of Oretta Corbelli amplifying this allure through fashion pieces from brands like Valentino, Tommy Hilfiger, and AMIRI.

Sonia Lee’s grooming of Stephen’s hair tells a story as compelling as his wardrobe. From sculpted waves that hark back to the heartthrobs of yesteryear to a tousled, modern rebel’s mane, every detail is a note in his visual symphony, resonating with his artistic identity.

Exploring the substance behind the style, Stephen Sanchez’s interview with David Gargiulo offers a glimpse into his music’s roots and evolution. His grandfather’s influence, evident in the familial warmth of his melodies, underscores the importance of legacy in his life and work.

Sanchez’s self-taught journey, involving a ukulele, a guitar, and an intuitive sense for music, parallels his approach to fashion—self-assured, authentic, and natural.

The 21-year-old singer’s reflective words in the interview: “The tunes from that era articulate the challenges people faced, delving into prejudices and cultural hardships…The music serves as a unique blueprint, offering insights into various aspects of life.”

These are not just musings but the foundation of his creative philosophy. The way Sanchez connects his music to the societal narratives of the past while addressing the universal themes of love and heartache is reflected in the visual storytelling of his Vestal magazine feature.
