Faith received critical press acclaim from the likes of El Mundo, Canales, El Impacto, El Especial, Hoy El Diario, amongst many other newspapers and magazines, along with earning him exclusive features on Telemundo and Univision.
Edwin continues to write songs of his experiences, outlooks, beliefs, spirituality conceptually creating music that is reflective of his journey and growth as an artist and musician. His next album "Spanglish", will be released in December, 30th 2014.
