But, the SoCal band has also wowed the world with their ever-present bare chests - being shirtless on the beach, shirtless on their surfboards, shirtless in the pool, shirtless on the boat, and shirtless at the mansion. So, the big question at hand remains: What's up with all the shirtless moments, dudes?
"People were born naked. It just feels better. Take your shirt off. That's what we do," says Wes Stromberg. "We live in Southern California. It's just hot out here all the time. It's not a big deal or anything. It's not like we're walking around naked or something. Guys walk around with their shirts off all the time. Some people just like to make a big deal of it adds Drew Chadwick.
But, all joking about their penchant for disrobing aside, these guys are dead serious about their music. "In essence music is what feelings sound like," says Drew, summing up his deep and personal connection to his music. Adds Wes, "I'm insanely passionate when it comes to music and through it I express positivity and good vibes. Music is my therapy."
As for what to expect from an Emblem3 record, Keaton Stromberg explains, "We bring this style of raw and realness into our music, with Drew writing these meaningful lyrics that express emotion and with us all playing our instruments. When we create our record we are going to bring in our raw/realness factor and bring the real back to mainstream music. We are going to create songs that involve thought and will make people feel real emotions."
