From the moment they stepped onto the X-Factor stage in 2012, it was clear that Emblem3 was here to take the Music Industry by storm. Performing their original song, “Sunset Boulevard,” against show producer’s wishes, Emblem3 immediately captured the attention of America with their profound talent and knack for following the beat of their own drum. Their impact was undeniable as the group went on to sell out venues around the world and over 400,000 copies of their single, “Chloe (You’re the One I Want).”
Comprised of brothers Wesley and Keaton Stromberg, and long-time friend Drew Chadwick, Emblem3 has been producing music together as a band for almost a decade. Growing up together in Sequim, WA, Emblem3’s musical style is a blend of R&B, So-Cal Rock and Hip-Hop. With this unique contrast, it’s no surprise that these three guys from Washington have already begun to carve out a space for themselves in the Music Industry.
From the unforgettable lyrics to their genre defying melodies, the true driving force behind Emblem3’s music is their passion. What separates Emblem3 from other bands is their commitment to being musicians first and foremost. It is important that they are actively involved in every aspect of the recording process. All three guys contribute lyrical content, which makes for an incredible range of feelings and perspectives for each song, and youngest member, Keaton, leads their music production and audio engineering.
In the short time Emblem3 has taken the world stage, they have already surpassed seasoned recording artists by attending coveted industry events including the Billboard Music Awards, iHeartRadio Music Awards, and the Teen Choice Awards in which they won the award for “Choice Breakout Group.”
What is perhaps most special is the unwavering commitment and connection that Emblem3 has with their fans. Emblem creates their music with the purpose of empowering others and creating a “sustainable system of inspiration.” Member Drew Chadwick said it best – “Music is for meditation, it’s the only pure form of communication.” Wesley, Keaton, and Drew are here to create music true to who they are and continue to touch lives along the way.
2016 is gearing up to be an exciting year for the band and their loyal Emblems – for the first time, the band will be releasing a new EP for free in February through their own App, which will be available in all App stores. Soon after this release, they will be taking their music directly to their fans on a World Tour in April, starting in Japan and continuing through the Philippines, the United States and Canada.
