2015— Pursuit of Magic
Approved by Edson Sean for distribution
"The roots stem from hip hop/R&B and the seed is Hip Hop Soul. Combining these elements is no easy task but this rapper/vocalist/producer masterfully intertwines the best of both worlds in The Pursuit Of Magic. " — OneTrackMine
"Edson Sean shows that he is ready to play hard in the R&B game. The album may be called In The Pursuit Of Magic, but it’s clear that the Brooklyn singer may have something enchanting already." — 24OurMusic
