Gregory Bowdry, better known by his stage name Stringz EMB, is a St. Louis-born, award winning American singer, songwriter, record producer, international performer, entrepreneur, and community advocate.
Touring from coast to coast and even across our country's borders, Stringz EMB has performed along side of artists such as Lyfe Jennings, Raheem DeVaughn, Ayah The Light, Murphy Lee of the St. Lunatics, Bubba Sparxx, and ATG of Discrepancies.
His most recent stand out performance took place December of '22. He headlined the pre-game & halftime show at the Memphis Grizzlies game in Memphis, TN at the infamous FedExForum.
He and his band are also the winners of the Battle at Busch Battle of the Bands competition that took place at Busch Stadium (home of the St. Louis Cardinals).
The young artist draws his musical influence from legendary musicians such as James Brown, Ray Charles, John Legend, Anthony Hamilton, Anderson .Paak, B.O.B., Drake, and Young Thug. His unique blend of soulful crooning, angelic harmonies, heavy bass, and live instrumentation, produces one of the biggest sounds we've ever heard.
Make it a point to check out his most recent EP, "Black Summer," (a sampler platter for DJs and vibes, showing how I can get myself into different vibes).
Watch & enjoy the video to his leading single "Save Me" (featuring KV The Writer & Jay Marie).
Can't say this for all, but it's pretty easy to fall in love with Stringz EMB, the person. Outside of music he is HUGE on family. He spends most of his weekends either coordinating or participating in various family events. He loves to cook, & the grill is where he finds his peace. With his wife, Dr. Katrina Thompson-Bowdry, on his side, he also enjoys traveling to other countries to experience their food and culture. He's even taken his love of food to the next level. His latest creation, Monster Sauce STL (@monstersaucestl), has been deemed by many as the spiciest, yet tastiest sauce on the market. Packed with some of the hottest peppers known to man; calmly melded with some of the most nostalgic tropical fruit grown in nature. This sauce gives a flavorful kick like none other!
This rising mogul is definitely one that you should keep on your radar.
