Emblem3 is a Huntington Beach band consisting of Wesley Stromberg, Keaton Stromberg, Drew Chadwick, Kyle Miner, and Kenny Galbraith.
The Strombergs and Chadwick grew up in Sequim, Washington, and started writing songs when they were 9, 11 and 12. Known then as The American Scholars, they arranged, recorded and produced their first album "Bite Your Lip and Take It" in the basement of their home.
The Stromberg brothers have relatives in the entertainment industry. Their father, William Stromberg, is a Grammy nominated film composer, and their uncle, Robert Stromberg, has multiple Academy Awards as Art Director for "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland" and is currently directing the Angelina Jolie movie "Maleficent". Their mother, Laraine Claire, is a jazz harpist and composer.
When people ask what they sound like, they usually tell them what Fat Daniel from Kiss-FM said after "E3" won the Orange County Battle of the bands: "Its like Jack Johnson and Jason Mraz had a baby and Lil Wayne was baby sitting."
They are currently contestants on season 2 of The X Factor. Their song "Sunset Blvd" received postitive reviews from the judges during the season premiere. They also appeared on season 7 of America's Got Talent and were in the final 20.
