Edge began his career in the entertainment industry as a DJ before he then broke into television as the music producer of a TV show for Channel 4. In the late 1980s he started the record label Cool Tempo, which became one of the UK’s biggest dance and hip-hop labels through signings including Eric B. & Rakim, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh and Monie Love. Edge then moved to America to begin working for Warner Brothers, taking Monie Love and the Jungle Brothers with him. He began this phase of his career at Arista, where he signed breakthrough artist Dido, before later moving to the newly founded J Records when Arista president Clive Davis set it up. Edge served as Executive Vice President of A&R at J Records.
Edge became the head of the RCA Music Group in 2011 following its separation from the Jive Label Group, which made up the RCA/Jive Label Group. Barry Weiss previously served as head of both label groups. Edge oversaw the restructuring of RCA Music Group with its labels Arista, J Records and Jive Records being shut down and their artists moving to RCA.
