As the front man of GRAMMY Award-winning recording artist Maroon 5, Adam Levine has left an indelible mark on popular music. The primary songwriter for the band and a guitar player, Adam’s talents give Maroon 5 their signature sound. His heartfelt ballads and pop anthems have become part of the fabric of this decade's music scene.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Levine first connected with Maroon 5 members Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden while attending Brentwood School in Los Angeles. The band has since gone on to have massive critical and commercial success worldwide. Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums, Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. Maroon 5 won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane, and followed it up with the double platinum album, It Won't be Soon Before Long, which included hits like 'Makes Me Wonder' and 'If I Never See your Face Again.'
In September 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, that also recently went platinum. The album featured two hit singles including the Hot AC smash “Misery” and the anthemic “Moves Like Jagger,” which climbed to the #1 spot on the Top 40 and Hot AC charts and also claimed the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. Both singles received GRAMMY Award nominations in the category of 'Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals,' marking the group’s eighth GRAMMY nomination overall and 5th in that category. With the success of “Moves Like Jagger” on the Hot 100 chart, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine became the first artist in the chart's 53-year history to reach #1 as part of a group and enter the Top 10 at the same time as a soloist, as he is also featured on Gym Class Heroes’ “Stereo Heart.'
In addition to his work with Maroon 5, band frontman Adam Levine joined the #1 NBC hit series The Voice as a coach in 2011.
Adam Levine has also collaborated with various musical acts including Kanye West, Alicia Keys, Natasha Bedingfield, Slash and K'naan. Levine has also made several appearances on television, including Saturday Night Live, 30 Rock, The Daily Show with John Stewart and Comedy Central's Night Of Too Many Stars.
