Victor Sanz

 

Victor Sanz   is an American country music artist. He has released two studio albums, both on independent labels: Destination Unknown on Gramac,

 

and Hey Country on West Coast Independent Records. These albums have produced three chart singles on the Billboard country charts. His highest-

 

peaking single, "Tell Me What You Wanna Do", reached No. 60.

Victor Sanz was born in Wasco, California to parents who had immigrated from Mexico. Sanz began playing local clubs and fairs during his teenage

 

years, usually performing original material. He recorded his first demo tape at age 19, which featured Buck Owens's Buckaroos backing him.

Sanz later founded a band called Prairie Thunder, which opened for Merle Haggard, Collin Raye and Lee Roy Parnell. He then recorded another demo

 

tape, which he gave to a friend. The friend then gave it to his father, Rusty Graham, who was the president of an independent record label called

 

Gramac. Sanz then signed to Gramac, releasing his debut album Destination Unknown that year. This album produced two chart singles in "I'm Gonna

 

Be There" and the title track, both of which peaked at No. 68 on the Billboard country charts. The title track was also made into a music video which

 

aired on CMT. Also included on this album was a cover of Paul Davis's pop hit "I Go Crazy", which Sanz recorded in both English and Spanish.

Four years after the release of his debut album, Sanz and businessman Scott Hacker founded a label called West Coast Independent Records. His

 

second album,  Hey Country, was released on this label. This album produced two more singles in "Tell Me What You Wanna Do" and "Love Won't Let

 

Me".
