As both the front man and primary songwriter of the multi-GRAMMY Award-winning band Maroon 5, Adam Levine continues to indelibly impact the face of modern popular music. Adam’s characteristic falsetto, a consistent infectious driving force behind scores of hit pop anthems and heartfelt ballads, has helped propel Maroon 5 into fast becoming one of the most successful worldwide acts in today’s popular music.
A native of Los Angeles, Adam founded the band Kara’s Flowers while still attending Brentwood High School. A few years later, the group would eventually transform into Maroon 5, quickly winning over both fans and critics alike with their hybrid pop rock/R&B sound. Since that time, Maroon 5 have gone on to quite an impressive career with both critical as well as commercial success. Their discography features a succession of five multi-platinum studio albums that have resulted in more than $20-million in sales, three GRAMMY Awards, 12 GRAMMY nominations, as well as gold and platinum certifications in over 35 countries. The band holds a Top 40 record that boasts a total of nine N. 1 hits among pop groups.
In 2011, Adam was the first artist to have a No. 1 Top 40 hit with Maroon 5’s “Move Like Jagger,” while simultaneously having another Top 10 solo hit on the Billboard chart with “Stereo Hearts,” (when he guested with Gym Class Heroes, which later went on to be No. 1). And in 2015, Adam remarkably hit No. 1 again when he was featured on “Locked Away” by R. City.
In addition to their immense sales history and chart dominance, Maroon 5 is also one of the most successful touring artists in pop music. When their current tour concludes in March 2017, the band will have played over 120 concerts in 30+ countries with more than 2,500,000 fans in attendance.
Outside of Maroon 5, Adam has recently broadened his entertainment resume to include both TV and motion picture roles. In February 2017, Adam will be returning for the 12th season as a coach (three-time winner) on the top-rated, three time EMMY Award winning NBC hit series The Voice (US). Adam’s other TV credits include American Horror Story: Asylum, Family Guy and 30 Rock, to name a few.
In 2015, Adam was cast in a major role in director John Carney’s acclaimed film Begin Again alongside Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. Adam also performed the film’s theme song entitled “Lost Stars,” which earned an Academy Award nomination for “Best Original Song.” Adam partnered once again with Carney to co-write the song “Go Now,” featured on the soundtrack for Carney’s 2016 critically-acclaimed movie Sing Street (The Weinstein Company).
Next up, Levine will appear in the upcoming filmsFun Mom Night that features Molly Shannon and Toni Collette and The Clapper, alongside Ed Helms and Amanda Seyfried.
