BIOGRAPHY

ORAL "EDGE MICHAEL" DURLOO

BORN ORAL MARK DURLOO ON THE 9th DAY OF FEBRUARY TO DAVID DURLOO AND MELZETA
McINTOSH (Younger sister of reggae legend and superstar PETER TOSH.) OF WESTMORELAND, JAMAICA.
EDGE'S PARENTS HAD DREAMS OF HIM BECOMING A FAMOUS DOCTOR OR LAWYER. HOWEVER, AT BIRTH EDGE MICHAEL SHOWED GREAT SIGNS OF MUSIC IN THE VEINS. GROWING UP EDGE EMPHASIZED MORE INTEREST IN MUSIC THAN ANYTHING ELSE. MUSIC WAS INDEED HIS DESTINY.

AS A TEENAGER ATTENDING MANNING'S SCHOOL IN WESTMORELAND THERE WAS NO SCHOOL CONCERT THAT DID NOT FEATURE THE VOICE OF EDGE MICHAEL.THE LOCAL SOUND SYSTEMS AND WEEKEND DANCEHALLS WERE HIS MAJOR FORTES.

EDGE MICHAEL'S PROFESSIONAL DEBUT CAME IN THE EARLY 90'S WHEN HE HOOKED UP WITH THEN VERY POPULAR JAH CHILDREN BAND. PERFORMING AS LEAD VOCALIST THIS BROUGHT ABOUT HIS EXPOSURE TO THE INTERNATIONAL MUSIC INDUSTRY. EDGE MICHAEL SHARED STAGE WITH CELEBRATED ACTS OF THE JAMAICAN MUSIC INDUSTRY. SUCH AS DENNIS BROWN, GREGORY ISSAAC AND SANCHEZ JUST TO NAME A FEW. HIS STINT WITH JAH CHILDREN LASTED A YEAR AND A HALF.

SOON AFTER EDGE MOVED ON TO PERFORMING WITH MEMBERS OF THE S.A.N.E. BAND. WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS STINT WITH THE S.A.N.E. BAND HE REPLIED, "GREAT BAND.I REALLY LEARNED A LOT FROM THOSE MUSICIANS. BRIAN (Former keyboardist S.A.N.E. band) WAS THE ONE THAT TAUGHT ME VOCAL PHRASING, PRINCE AND TREVOR ENCOURAGED ME TO CREATE MY OWN VOCAL STYLE." EDGE'S PROFESSIONAL RELATIONSHIP WITH S.A.N.E. WAS SHORT BUT HE WAS NOW TRAVELLING TOWARD GREATER PURSUITS.

1994 WAS THE YEAR THAT BROUGHT FORTH EDGE MICHAEL'S FIRST RECORDING THE SELF COMPOSED AND CO-PRODUCED SINGLE ENTITLED TRY MY LOVE ON THE CROWD PLEASER LABEL. THIS HIT THE DANCEHALL CIRCUIT WITH A BANG. THE EFFORT RECEIVED MODEST AIR RECOGNITION AND SALES IN EXCESS OF FORTY THOUSAND COPIES. THE FOLLOWING YEAR SAW EDGE IN KINGSTON CITY PERFORMING WITH GUMSION, THE OPENING ACT AND BACKING BAND FOR THE CELEBRATED BERES HAMMOND. EDGE WAS NOW PLAYING LARGER SETTINGS, SUCH AS REGGAE SUNSPLASH AND REGGAE SUMFEST.

1995 BROUGHT FORTH THE RELEASE OF A SECOND SINGLE, A REMAKE OF ROBERT KELLY'S BUMP 'N' GRINE WHICH DANCEHALL PATRONS SWALLOWED WITH A SMILE. 1996 EDGE PRESENTED A MORE INTERNATIONAL TASTE OF REGGAE. THIS HAD HIM PERFORMING ON THE SAME TICKET ALONGSIDE ENTERTAINERS SUCH AS STEELE PULSE, BURNING SPEAR, BUNNY WAILER, MAXI PRIEST AND SHAGGY TO NAME A FEW. WITH THE RELEASE OF EDGE'S 1996 EFFORT "HARD ROAD TO TRAVEL" A SELF COMPOSED, ARRANGED AND PRODUCED ALBUM WITH SOME 14 TRACKS OF MOSTLY THOUGHT PROVOKING LYRICS AND LOVE SONGS, EDGE STARTED PROMOTIONAL TOURING.





IN THE YEAR 2000 HE EARNED MORE CREDIT TO HIS MUSIC AND A LOT MORE TO HIS FAN BASE DURING A PROMOTIONAL TOUR OF THE USA PERFORMING ON FOX NETWORK-FOX 5 GOOD DAY ATLANTA AND CBS-WGCL TV.

2002 SAW EDGE PUTTING FINISHING TOUCHES ON HIS ALBUM CIRCLE OF LIFE, INCLUDING REMIXES IN SPANISH AND A TRIBUTE SONG TO THE HEROS OF NEW YORK CITY.

AT THE START OF 2003 EDGE TOOK TWO YEARS OFF TO ASSIST IN THE SET UP AND OPERATIONS OF HIS PART OWNED RADIO STATION IN JAMAICA LINKZ FM. IN THE PROCESS HE ALSO HOSTED A VIBRANT PRIME TIME THREE HOURS SHOW MONDAYS TO FRIDAYS. HE STUDIED RADIO BROADCASTING AT THE UNIVERSITY OF THE WEST INDIES MONA WHERE HE GRADUATED WITH AN HONOURS CERTIFICATE.

THE MAN AND ARTISTE ARE COMPLETELY INTERTWINED, PRESENTING A NATURAL AND “DOWN TO EARTH” PERSONA. WHEN ASKED ABOUT HIS FAVOURITE TYPE OF MUSIC EDGE SMILED IN REPLY "I ENJOY ALL FORMS OF MUSIC I JUST HAVE TO BE IN THE MOOD FOR IT". CHINESE IS HIS FAVOURITE FOOD. LEISURE TIME IS SPENT WITH HIS INSTRUMENTS A GOOD BOOK OR A GREAT MOVIE. HE ENJOYS RELAXING IN JEANS AND COOL SHIRTS.

WHEN EDGE IS NOT ON TOUR OR IN THE STUDIO (which is not very often) HE ENJOYS STROLLING ON THE BEACH, JET SKIING OR JUST SIMPLY CHILLING OUT.

IT IS NOW 2005 AND EDGE MICHAEL HAS RETURNED TO HIS FIRST LOVE MAKING MUSIC AND PERFORMING, WITH A SOLID PERFORMANCE AT WESTERN CONCIUOSNESS, NEW MUSIC ON THE FIWI MUSIC LABEL IN HIGH RADIO ROTATION, HE IS READY. ARE YOU?

TO DATE EDGE HAS SOLD THOUSANDS OF CD'S AND VINYL COPIES OF MUSIC TOURED MEXICO, AFRICA, BRAZIL, PARTS OF EUROPE, THE CARIBBEAN AND PARTS OF NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA.
