About Emblem3

From Southern California, Pop-Rock hybrid Emblem3 first rose to fame on the 2012 season of The X Factor USA. Made up of brothers Keaton & Wesley Stromberg (sons of Grammy-nominated composer William Stromberg & nephews of Academy Award-winning art director Robert Stromberg) along with childhood best friend Drew Chadwick, the trio got their start writing songs in their basement, performing at schools, and all over Los Angeles before debuting on the big stage. After finishing in 4th place, E3 signed a recording contract with Simon Cowell’s Syco Records & Columbia Records. Their album Nothing to Lose debuted at #7 on Billboard Hot 100 & breakout single “Chloe” sold nearly 500K copies by the end of 2013 (18 M+ official music video views to date). With their growing fan base, the band toured internationally to Europe and South America and headlined their own North American tour, #Bandlife.
