Maroon 5 Biography
Fusing their tales of lost love with a polished blend of soft-rock, funk-pop and soul, Maroon 5 have responsible for some of the biggest radio hits of the past decade. Inspired by artists as diverse as Prince, Oasis, and Talking Heads, lead vocalist/guitarist Adam Levine, bassist Mickey Madden, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, and drummer Ryan Dusick first came together whilst attending Los Angeles’ Brentwood High School under the guise of Kara’s Flowers. Produced by Rob Cavallo (Green Day), their 1997 experimental debut album, The Fourth World, sold less than 5,000 copies and the band came close to splitting after being dropped by their Reprise label. But matters improved when they took the advice of Octone Records executive Ben Berkman and recruited guitarist James Valentine to allow Levine to focus on his duties as a frontman. Now performing under their more familiar moniker, Maroon 5 tickets were constantly available thanks to their gruelling tour schedule, and in 2002, the band released their breakthrough LP, Songs About Jane. A word-of-mouth success, it took 26 months to reach the US Top 10, the longest time for an album to do so in Billboard history, and spawned a string of hit singles including “Harder To Breathe,” “This Love” and “She Will Be Loved.” Following a Grammy win for Best New Artist, a headline slot on the 2005 “Honda Civic Tour” and an appearance at the Philadelphia leg of “Live 8” alongside Stevie Wonder, drummer Dusick left to be replaced by Matt Flynn. 2007’s It Won’t Be Soon Before Long reached number one as did its lead single, “Makes Me Wonder,” and Maroon 5 tickets became hugely in demand after they announced an intimate six-date club tour to promote the record. After opening for The Police and re-recording “If I Never See Your Face Again” with Rihanna, they embarked on a more extensive world tour before teaming up with producer Mutt Lange for 2010’s Hands All Over. But it was Levine’s appointment as a judge on The Voice that spearheaded their biggest success. Joining forces with TV co-star Christina Aguilera, “Moves Like Jagger”, hit the top spot in over 20 countries and sold nine million copies worldwide. Described as their poppiest album to date, 2012’s Overexposed produced both a UK chart-topper (“Payphone”) and a US number one (“One More Night”), before Maroon 5 tickets went on sale for a world tour of the same name.
