The prodigious Sinaloense singer/songwriter’s gorgeous debut full-length

Having already garnered considerable recognition for his songwriting—including a Latin GRAMMY® nomination for 2015’s “Me Sobrabas Tú”—Joss Favela has become one of Mexico’s most prominent voices well before releasing an album. But Hecho o Mano, his debut full-length, reaffirms the Sinaloense's prodigious feel for melody, arrangements, and atmosphere. While the exhilarating “No Vuelvas a Llamarme” is galvanized by bursts of hot brass and dizzying accordion runs, “Cuando Fuimos Nada” is endlessly romantic, with a passionate vocal performance that’s as elegant as it is disarming.
