About this week’s artist:
Gregory Bowdry, better known by his stage name Stringz EMB, is a St. Louis-born, award-winning American singer, songwriter, record producer, national performer, entrepreneur, and community advocate.
Dating back to 2014, Stringz EMB & Super Producer PJ Fresh, have been brewing up the magic of his records inside the beautifully ambient Sawhorse Studio, the same studio that housed several world-renowned projects, one of the most recent works being the Psychedelic Furs, Made of Rain, produced by Guns N’ Roses guitarist Richard Fortus.
Touring from coast to coast, Stringz EMB has performed with and opened for artists such as ATG of Discrepancies, Bubba Sparxx, and Murphy Lee of the St. Lunatics. In the midst of touring the world, the young artist even hustled his way into a huge collaboration with Jamaican-born vocal recording artist Javada, titled “Only Ting.” You can hear energetic track on his sophomore album, “É legato a,” currently available on all streaming platforms. His most recent standout performances happened in early August and September 2021. He headlined a packed house at Diamond Music Hall in St. Peters, MO. As a result of his successful show, he hustled up a spot as an opener for the legendary Lyfe Jennings. Because of his soulfully raspy tone & storytelling abilities, the young artist was a perfect fit for the event’s soldout crowd. He was appointed a mission and he exceeded expectations. So much so, that he was also pulled along for the remaining leg of Lyfe Jennings’ tour. Be sure to lookout for Stringz EMB this summer as he’s set to open for the Icon Wiz Khalifa & Logic on their Vinyl Verse tour.
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.
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, and 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 (@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 kick like none other!
