About Emblem3
"What is music?" This was the question written in black marker on the whiteboard brothers Keaton and Wesley Stromberg (16 and 19 years old) and lifelong friend Drew Chadwick (20) kept in their Huntington Beach crash pad. This whiteboard had served as an artistic nerve center for the trio, on which they had plotted out songs, set goals and wrote mantras of inspiration. They were brainstorming for a new band name, and the word "Emblem" immediately struck the trio as something classic and symbolic, eternal. The ambitious trio, looked at a blank white board and their dwindling bank accounts, knowing they needed a bigger break. They were given one with an audition for X Factor, where they wowed Simon Cowell with their original performance of "Sunset Blvd." – no easy feat. Their unwillingness to compromise to the "boy band" mold may have cost them in the short term; they failed to make the finals of X Factor. But having amassed 15 million YouTube views and an international fanbase, they were clearly the show's breakout band. Emblem3 signed to Syco Music and Columbia Records, with award-winning songwriter and producer Savan Kotecha (Maroon 5, Usher, One Direction) serving as their debut's executive producer. As voracious listeners and true polyglots, Emblem3 show their astounding range in positive, empowering and catchy singles such as "XOXO," "Just For One Day" and lead single "Chloe (You're The One That I Want)."
