His first single “¿Y cómo hago ahora?” hit the top of the charts of Costa Rican pop radio and catapulted Esteban into the regional market by reaching top 10 in MTV Latin America. This newfound success led to his nomination as Costa Rican artist of the year by the international radio station “Los 40 Principales”. His debut album was also the most nominated album for the 2010 ACAM Awards (Costa Rican Grammy equivalent) with 6 nominations. Esteban and his team ended up taking home 3 ACAM Awards including Pop Composer of the Year.

    Griffith Frank is an award-winning singer and platinum song writer hailing from Topanga, California. Griffith's father, David Frank (a musician himself, who has written and produced many international hits such as "Don't Disturb This Groove", "Genie in a Bottle", and "The Hardest Thing") has influenced Griffith's deep love and pursuit of music. Griffith spent his formative years playing under his father's piano, and it wasn't long until Griffith began to show signs of musical talent; especially in the realm of singing. He would eventually sign with A&M records as a solo recording artist under Ron Fair (responsible for such acts as Pussycat Dolls, Black Eyed Peas, and Christina Aguilera) where he would record several albums and work with many prolific producers and songwriters. Griffith has performed all over the world and was even a featured artist at the Jakarta Java Jazz Festival. As well, he was featured on the soundtrack of the Golden Globe Nominated movie "Nine", in which he sang his own version of "Unusual Way" to critical acclaim. Griffith has performed as a soloist on some of the world's most prestigious stages, such as the Disney Hall, Royce Hall, and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
