Maroon 5

Maroon 5 began as a late-Nineties L.A. grunge outfit called Kara’s Flowers, featuring guitarist-singer Adam Levine, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, bassist Mickey Maddin and drummer Ryan Dusick, who were signed to Reprise while still in high school. They issued one poor-selling album and broke up for college.

Soon they reunited, this time calling themselves Maroon 5 and adopting a poppier, more R&B-inflected sound, and adding guitarist James Valentine. In 2002 they issued their debut, Songs About Jane, a slow-building success (it went to Number 6 two years after its issue) thanks to the single “Harder to Breathe” (Number 18, 2003). More singles followed, including “This Love”, “She Will Be Loved”, “Sunday Morning”, “Won’t Go Home Without You”, and “Moves Like Jagger”.
