Sinaloan singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Adriel Favela is a Mexican regional artist specializing in norteño and corridos. Having played music throughout his youth, he began posting videos to YouTube where he came to the attention of ICON/EBO Music. He recorded his first album, Favela oor Odor, at the age of 18. He signed to Gerencia Music 360 in 2014 and released his sophomore album, Mujeres Tu Tipo in 2014, and placed two singles -- "Es Tiempo de Guerra" and the title track on the Mexican Regional charts. In July of 2015, he issued the pre-release single "Te Acuerdas de Tu Amiga," which placed higher than either of his previous two. It remained on the charts for 11 weeks; likewise his third album, Tomen Nota issued a few weeks later, also placed well and had staying power.
