The Edge Band was formed in 1998 in Pokhara; they came into the Nepali Rock scene with a self-titled debut in 2000. The video of the single memo aasu from the debut album witnessed a country wide popularity surge within a week of its official release. This success gave the band a much needed break into the mainstream music industry in Nepal. The album included other hits like jeewan mero, pagal nabhana, and numerous jams and rehearsals, Jeewan connected with three talented seasoned musicians in Pokhara. They shared similar views, attitude, and taste for the music they envisioned haheyko.
The new lineup is perhaps the most talented ever. Emerging from a deep hiatus the band cut their second album Vibes with Vajra Records in 2006. The album contains some of the most intelligent originals the band has in its credit till date. Recorded and mastered at Sacred Sound Studio, Kathmandu, Vibes showcases the band’s technical prowess, endurance, and lyrical maturity. MERO ASSU THAHA CHAINA, YO DIL MERO an orchestral arrangement; SHANTI KO SANDESH, a hard rock with the patriotic theme;Kasai lai, a steady rock groove; Brahma, an alternative experiment; ballads, JIUNA LAI GARO and dukkha diyera; and soothing prastab and lekhiyeka shabda demonstrate the cohesion amidst diversity in composition.
The Edge has received couple awards and nominations. The song Dukkha diyera bagged the best lyrics award at the Pokhara Music Award. The song received critical acclaim for its soulful words. In 2006, following the release of Vibes, The Edge was nominated at the 9th Tuborg Annual Image Awards in the category of Rock Vocal Performance. Although it was only confined to nominations, The Edge has come out of age to demonstrate their ability to deliver beyond anyone’s expectation. Currently, the band is working on the new materials.
