Washington state natives Wesley Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, and their best friend Drew Chadwick were taking the traditional approach towards a music career by playing live along the Sunset Strip. However, a chance audition led the boys to immediate mass appeal when the reggae-infused surf popsters finished a disappointing fourth (despite being the breakout band) on the second season of The X Factor. Head honcho Simon Cowell liked what he saw and signed them to Columbia as well as his own Syco Records imprint.
Soon thereafter, the boys went into the studio to hone their craft, collaborating with the likes of Joel Madden of Good Charlotte, Jack Antonoff of the Grammy-winning band fun., and Kool Kojak who had collaborated on hugely popular tracks with both Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha. Nothing To Lose was released in July, and featured the hit singles “Chloe (You're the One I Want)” and “3000 Miles.”
As the opening act for Selena Gomez on her Stars Dance Tour in 2013 and a standout at many festivals, Emblem3 has turned countless ticket buyers into devout fans eager for more concerts and infectious pop rock hits.
