Verge of Bliss / Press

“Should you happen to be in Atlanta anytime soon, try to catch a Verge Of Bliss live show before they become famous and start playing arenas. Based on the self-titled EP, they deserve national recognition. The power trio, led by bassist and singer Virginia Bliss, mixes classic rock fire and a jam band sensibility into something that sounds familiar but not recycled. Guitarist Trey Bliss (Virginia’s ex) is a force of nature, seriously channeling Jimmy Page in both quality and quantity of riffs in one song. Four of the five tracks are electric guitar trips with hints of psychedelia and Southern rock, a bit like Stone Temple Pilots but without the pretension; the best example is “The Wheel,” a six-minute workout with more twists and turns than pretty much any modern rock sludgefest currently clogging up the radio. Verge Of Bliss is definitely worth the time. Here’s hoping rock radio discovers them. Rating: B”

“Verge of Bliss is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets. Singer Virginia Bliss is not only hot but not afraid to belt it out. Traces of 90's alternative rock linger on their sound but with a much more experimental approach, comparison could be drawn to Pj Harvey at times in other instances Concrete Blonde, but the band never gives a blatant wink to either and find their own sound in the process.”

“It took me ‘til the last track of their five-song, self-titled EP before I realized the singer for Atlanta trio Verge of Bliss was a woman. Chances are she’ll take that as a high compliment. Big, loud, strutty, red-meat cock-rock minus the cock.”

“The Atlanta-based power-trio’s sound is best described as psychedelic rock with a sultry and POWERFUL female lead singer. Virginia Bliss, the bands lead singer & bass player, has some amazing vocal ability similar to the late Janis Joplin mixed with current rock-star Aja Volkman of Nico Vega. Their songs range from mid-tempo and slow powerful psychedelic rock ballads, to drum-charged & heavy 70-ish-sounding beats fueled by drummer Stuart Gussman.”

“In a world where rockers are trying to find something really new and original, Verge of Bliss has stuck with something that has proven itself to be golden. Verge of Bliss is definitely a group to look out for. Their music is powerful and really is aimed to cut deep.”

“Verge Of Bliss brings back the psychedelic space rock of the 60s and 70s. But don’t expect a generic classic rock band - they have a unique, unmistakable sound. Lead singer Virginia Bliss adds serious soul to the mix with her wide vocal range, and Trey Bliss can lay down some pretty sweet riffs and solos on his Les Paul...and with this combination, you will have an eargasm. My personal favorite of theirs is “Brown Thrasher” - the instrumentation combined with the lyrics is absolutely mesmerizing. This was once a five piece band, but it’s now a power trio since Trey look the reigns as the only guitarist and Virginia now slaps the bass. Now matter how many members Verge Of Bliss has, they will always be truly amazing.”
