Emblem3 BREAKUP ‘Drew Is Leaving’

emblem-3-naked-pictureEmblem3 have a message for you! ‘Hey Emblems, We have an important announcement to make. While we regret sharing this news, we as a group need to share that Drew has decided to move forward in pursuit of his solo career and will no longer be with Emblem3 or joining us on The Fireside Story Sessions.

We’re sad to see Drew go but he will always be our brother, and we couldn’t be happier for him as he starts his new journey as a solo artist. If you’d like to stay updated on Drew’s solo album and news tune into Drew’s Twitter/

Instagram and his YouTube channel for an announcement on June 27th regarding his new album. Drew sends hugs out to all the Emblems. We know many of you may be concerned about what this means for Emblem3, but I can assure you this is just the beginning! Me and Keaton started this band when we were 9 and 11 years old and we will continue making music for our fans. We love you with all our heart.

E3 has always been about a partnership of likeminded musicians and we’re committed to continuing this journey alongside you all. And who knows, you may also start seeing some very familiar faces popping up :).

We’ve been working tirelessly on new material and have so much of the new record to share with you on The Fireside Story Sessions starting next week! It’s gonna be so much fun and we can’t wait to hang around the campfire with you. I bet Keatons probably going to eat too many marshmallows and get sick. Anyway, we can’t wait to see you all there. Stay tuned for updates on the new album and if you want a sneak peak, come see us this summer ;).

    I don’t know what he’s expecting to come of a solo career. He’s going to flop. He’s better off staying with the other two boys.

    • dee

      i think that’s the point. he was never fully happy with selling out like they were forced to do. he’s much happier being a small time indie artist making music he can connect to and that’s from his heart than selling out arenas with music that is thoughtless and ‘catchy’.

      • honesty

        That’s a nice way of looking at it. That’s definitely a possibility. If it is, I respect him much more.

        • dee

          exactly :) also, they were dropped from syco in may, so there’s that as well.

  • anon

    Emblem2 then?

  • Emmy

    I know exactly why he left. Drew didn’t want to play Simon’s bullshit game anymore. Emblem3 screwed themselves over by being Simon’s bitches. It’s sad.He tried to make them a boy band. Honestly, they should do themselves a favor leave SyCo and go back to their original sound.

      They already did leave SyCo a few months ago. They were only signed to a 1 year contract and when that contract expired they chose to walk away from the label instead of renewing it, which is how they finally got to release Songs From The Couch, Vol. 1 on iTunes.

        Really? I must be out of the loop. The thing is, Drew is a strong songwriter and I think the group would do better with him there. I did read that SyCo “dropped” them. I despise Simon Cowell. He does not know how to nurture talent. He only wants money.

  • Sandy McFarlane

    but drew is the pretty one :(

  • MTL

    They really did compliment each other. Wesley has an AMAZING voice. Keaton’ right behind him. Wesley has unbelievable drive and ambition, Keaton is more introverted but tech smart. Drew is a bit weak in the voice department, but great with the word part of songwriting. He isn’t as driven as Wesley either. Much more laid-back. I think Wesley and Keaton have composing in their blood (and vocal power) and they live and breathe music, so they will be fine. We’ll probably be hearing about them for years to come. Drew I see as more of a songwriter and humanitarian. Music seems like just one of his interests. They are all cool. And talented.
