Crystal Waves is a music platform produced at Verge Studios that showcases upcoming and established artists/bands on our exclusive show that features live performances and interviews in front of a select live studio audience.

The program features one band each month and gives away a FREE VPK (video press kit) package valued at $999. Scheduling for Crystal Waves is limited to availability based on a first-come-first-serve basis and we do not schedule shows more than 3 months out.

We have had an overwhelming response of artists/bands eager to perform on Crystal Wave and are sincerely grateful to you for considering being a part of this experience. Due to the large number of requests and limited availability, we have created an 'Artists on the Verge' program.

Once we receive your request to be featured, we will review your music and band bio. If you are selected by our review committee, you will be added to our 'Artists on the Verge' program featured / promoted on our website and social media.

Artists on the Verge

Artists on the Verge will be added to the wait list of Artists/Bands eager to be featured on Crystal Waves. During the first week of every month we will reach out to the Artists/Bands on the wait-list to check their availability for the following three months. If you are notified and you do perform at the studio, you will be removed from the wait-list. However if you are notified but can not perform in that window of time, you will keep your place on the wait list and continue to be notified monthly until you choose to perform or opt out.

However, you do not have to wait to perform! If you are an Artist on the Verge and would like to use the services provided by Verge Studios, you will be given a special 20% off (terms and conditions apply) on sessions scheduled on weekdays during regular business hours between 10:00am and 5:30pm.

We also periodically send out special additional promotional notices, especially when there is studio downtime. This gives you awesome opportunities to get extremely low prices on the service packages.
If you are not an Artist on the Verge, we still have various service packages starting at $99 and can create custom packages to get you what you need. Feel free to email us at or call/text (425) 443-4791 to learn more.
