"Rock Musician" -
Formed in 1998 in Pokhara, The Edge came into the Nepali Rock scene with a self titled debut in 2000. The video of the single mero aasu from the debut album, witnessed a country wide popularity surge within a week of its official release.
In just a few years, the band found itself in a deep crossroads. With other priorities vying against the commitment to continue making music it became obvious that the original lineup would falter. The disbanding became the inevitable reality.
The hiatus that followed the disbanding, front-man Jeewan continued with his singing. 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.
After the release of the video for thaha chaina on major television channels, The Edge’s popularity spread far and wide. Since the album release, the band has played some dozen shows in their hometown Pokhara. They have played numerous sold-outs including charities and festivals. Their concerts are popular for a flawless performance and a powerful stage presence.
Thus far, The Edge has received couple awards and nominations. The song Duukha 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. The band is often seen playing live around town and in their own oxygen lounge bar in Lakeside.
