Edge Music Network Aims At Music Fans

Newport Beach-based Edge Music is aiming a new, streaming music service which offers up music audio ad videos, saying it has the backing of Universal, Capitol Records, Def Jam and Geffen, plus John Paul DeJoria; VH1 Classic founder, Eric Sherman; Aerosmith lead singer, Steven Tyler; The Who lead singer, Roger Daltrey; and Queen drummer, Roger Taylor. According to the startup, led by Elizabeth Vargas, it will offer up its unlimited audio and video streaming service for $9.99 per month, with a 14-day trial. The service is available as an iOS application. Edge says it also donates a portion of each subscription to charitable causes, including those that feed the hungry, aid victims of natural disasters and support homeless veterans.
