The latest edition of the SPIN Presents Lipps Service podcast features singer/songwriter Stephen Sanchez. In the episode, Sanchez spoke with host Scott Lipps about his breakout hit “Until I Found You,” how he found success on TikTok with a Cage the Elephant cover, and receiving a phone call from Sir Elton John, who has since become a “friend” and “mentor.”

The 20-year-old Sanchez also discussed his life-changing decision to drop out of high school during his senior year in order to pursue music full-time, and how his career was inspired by growing up on a farm listening to vinyl records with his grandparents.

On the previous Lipps Service episode, Rival Sons singer Jay Buchanan shared his blues influences, talked about what it was like growing up around religious fanatics, and revealed he once worked in a mortuary.

Since it began in 2018, the acclaimed podcast has featured many of the biggest voices and personalities in music, including exclusive interviews with Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis, David Lee Roth, Shepard Fairey, Courtney Love, Dove Cameron, Mick Fleetwood, Nikki Sixx, Perry Farrell, and many more. Every few weeks, a new episode of SPIN Presents Lipps Service is available wherever you listen to podcasts.
