Edge Michael
Edge Michael
Singer/songwriter, indebted to the potency of his radical roots, sounds and conscientious lyrical style, leaves his audiences empowered by his signature thought-provoking style and soulful musical bravura. Born Oral Mark Durloo, son of David Durloo and Melzeta McIntosh, sister of legendary reggae superstar Peter Tosh, gathers his inspiration from every day situations that we all face and unites us through music. “Music is like blood running through the vein of a living creature, therefore, to love my music, you need to FEEL my music”.
EDGE MICHAEL shared stage and spotlight with a host of renowned reggae artists in the early 1990’s. His successful career includes lead vocalist for Jah Children and Gumption. EDGE’s stage appearances include performances with Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs, Sanchez and reggae superstar Beres Hammond, iconic musicians Sly Dunbar, Trevor McKenzie, Lincoln Thomas (Ziggy Marley), and House of Riddim. In addition, he has also performed alongside distinguished entertainment luminaries such as Steel Pulse, Burning Spear, Bunny Wailers, Maxi Priest, and Shaggy.
EDGE MICHAEL composes messages of love, righteousness, truth and self-empowerment. His dedication and truest passion is in making sure that every child has a fair chance. The EDGE MICHAEL FOUNDATION sponsors Blossom Gardens Orphanage in Montego Bay, Jamaica. “My career has taken me across the globe and in so many towns, cities, villages, I see the need for help in so many ways. I know I cannot do it all; I am not trying to be a hero. I am simply trying to do my part in being my brother’s keeper. Life would be so much easier for us if we would each do a little to help the unfortunate amongst us…. Not only with donations but equally as important, the time – to give”.
