As part of Maroon 5, Levine has received three Grammy Awards, two Billboard Music Awards, two American Music Awards, an MTV Video Music Award and a World Music Award.Since 2011, Levine has served as a coach on NBC's reality talent show The Voice.As a result several singles, including "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved," began receiving constant airplay on radio and MTV, and finally settled comfortably at the top of the U. Except for Valentine, who was born in Lincoln, Nebraska, the band members all hail from Los Angeles, California.Dusick and Levine had known each other since they were kids and in high school they joined forces with Madden and Carmichael to form an alternative-rock band called Kara's Flowers."We were really young," Levine commented to Larry Katz of the Boston Herald."We were into Green Day, Weezer, and Beatles-inspired weirdness." In 1995, the foursome played their first official gig at the famous Los Angeles club the Whiskey-a-Go-Go.As they waited the group goofed around and chatted with Adam and Anne seeming perfectly comfortable despite both being semi naked.The affectionate couple have been together since January of 2009.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Levine began his musical career in 1994, when he co-founded the alternative rock band Kara's Flowers, of which he was the lead vocalist and guitarist.
According to the press, and summed up by Walter Tunis of the Lexington Herald-Leader, Maroon 5 was "one of the hottest new pop rock bands in the land." In February 2005 the music industry added its approval to the statement by presenting Maroon 5 with a Grammy Award for Best New Artist.
Ironically, although considered new on the music scene, the band actually had been performing together for ten years.
In 2002, the band released their first album, Songs About Jane, which went multi-platinum in the US.
Since then, they have released four more albums, It Won't Be Soon Before Long (2007), Hands All Over (2010), Overexposed (2012) and V (pronounced "five") (2014).
