Miami, FL (November 20, 2019) – Joss Favela has been no stranger to being recognized with some of the music industry’s highest honors. As the youngest songwriter to be recognized two years consecutively with ASCAP Latino’s “Composer of the Year” award, today Favela celebrates his second Grammy® nomination for “Best Regional Mexican Music Album” for his most recent album “Caminando”. Favela has previously been graced with two Latin Grammy® nominations.
About his nomination, Favela said, “It’s something really humbling. I love what I do as an artist and songwriter, and for me it’s always been special to be recognized for your work, especially with a Grammy® nomination. I feel like these are signs that God puts forth in your path to reassure you that you’re on the right path.”
The talented Sinaloan singer-songwriter has had an extraordinary success story in the last year. He was named as one of Forbes’ “30 under 30” and has continued to be one of the most influential Regional Mexican artists of today. Last month, two of his singles “Cuando Fuimos Nada” and “Me Hubieras Dicho” were certified Gold, Platinum and Triple Platinum in the U.S. His most recent album “Caminando” has produced instant fan favorites including “Me Hubieras Dicho” and “La Magia de tus Ojos”, who both entered the Top 5 of Billboard’s “Regional Mexican Airplay” chart in the U.S. Both singles and current single “Claro y Obvio” have surpassed a combined 124 Million views on YouTube and 47 million listens on Spotify. In addition, “Me Hubieras Dicho” and “La Magia de tus Ojos” have peaked in the Top 5 of Billboard’s “Regional Mexican Airplay” chart.
Favela is currently a judge on Univision high-rated reality competition “Reina de La Canción”, who’s final episode is set to air next Sunday, November 24 at 8p EST / 7p CST.
