First album: "Van Sanchez"

New album (in the works): "High Class Dirt Bag"



Van Sanchez (pr. Vän Sänchez) is a charming deviant with a melancholic streak, a facial tic, and a tendency to bite the people he likes. He hails from San Marcos, Texas where he attempts to write and make music that puts pictures into everyone’s “pretty little heads”. Initially his musical attempts resulted in instrumental “images” that incorporated neo-romantic/minimalist styles and rock/industrial/electronic sounds filtered through cinematic imagination and a slight southwestern bravado. They were images of murder and frenzy, of old men staggering through woods, of caviar parties with candelabras. But he grew tired of purely instrumental music, and so he began to sing. And his songs became even more vivid and evocative. He wrote about a pretty girl with unfortunate bacteria, about being hunted down by the cops, about a drug-addled drooler in way-too-tight of jeans. As he has continued to refine his ability to musically articulate the different emotions and experiences that trouble and tease him, he has created a body of work that defies immediate categorization. It is music of elegance and violence, indignation and guilt, obsession and whimsy, humor and suicide, lechery and innocence.

Van Sanchez released his debut, full-length, and self-titled album (available for sale at Waterloo Records, Sundance Records, and CD Baby) in July of 2009. He is currently writing, recording, and performing material from his newest work entitled “High Class Dirt Bag”.
