Sequim-turned-global pop phenomenon Emblem3 has released its first video in support of an upcoming album and the recently released single “Chloe (You're the One I Want)."
It was funded and posted by the group's record label, Syco, a subsidiary of Sony.
Sony owns a stake in Vevo, an industry-based website that syndicates videos across the Internet.
Emblem3 signed to Syco after placing third on the Fox television reality show “The X Factor.”
The band, Drew Chadwick and brothers Keaton and Wesley Stromberg, grew up in Sequim, performing at the Sequim unit of the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Olympic Peninsula and The Buzz, then moved to Huntington Beach, Calif., to focus on making it in the music business.
Laraine Claire, mother of the Stromberg brothers, said Friday the trio was on the East Coast this weekend preparing for a live concert in Central Park that will air on ABC's “Good Morning America” this Friday.
As of Saturday morning, the Emblem3 video had been seen by 823,894 people. It had been “Liked” by 28,167 people and “Disliked” by 1,034.
“Chloe,” an infectious piece of pop written and produced by Savan Kotecha, was released in April and rose to No. 11 on the iTunes pop charts, No. 26 overall.
As of Saturday, the single was not in the top 200 on the iTunes pop charts.
The video was filmed in Venice Beach, Calif., Claire said.
Later this summer, the group is scheduled to tour the U.S., South America and Europe opening for pop star Selena Gomez, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
