Edwin Hosoomel is a Panama born singer-songwriter. He has lived the last decade in Germany, calling Hamburg... home.
His love for the music started when he was 6 years old and a record machine came to his hands.
Assigning a genre to Edwin’s work is a difficult task due to his musical versatility. Armed with a loop device and a sultry voice, Edwin takes you into classical emotions together with experimental compositions and the raw energy of independent music.
The result? ...a very minimal, elegant, but still powerful sound.
Edwin’s debut EP “Lighthouse” was chosen as “Best of 2018” by Beehype. He is currently working on his second EP “Caribbean Diablo”, which unfolds a beautiful combination of Latin and European sounds.
After the release of his debut single "Games in the darkness", Edwin was recommended by the French magazine Les Inrockuptibles as "Must-to-listen artist"and chosen by the German radio station Detektor.FM as "Best Newcomer".
After releasing his second single "Doo Wop (That Thing)" as a tribute to Ms. Lauryn Hill, Edwin was nominated as "Best R&B singer" for the 35th German Rock and Pop Awards 2017.
