Check For On The-Verge.Com

January 31, 2008


On The-Verge.Com is a music information website and media outlet that was created and developed to showcase and expose the timeless soul music and talent that most often goes unheard due to insufficient exposure, support and promotion. There are numerous recording artists and musicians (signed and unsigned) that continue to make positive music contributions but because of the “commercial powers that be” lesser known artists are not given the same opportunities to be heard and exposed.

One artist Choklate (soul singer that has been killing Seattle to NYC and every spot in between), is a top artist on the soul music scene!

If you are in the Norfolk, Virginia Beach area Feb. 15th check out Soul Obsession: The Movement @ The Boot, in Norfolk, VA.
