The Adam Levine fronted band, which includes guitarist James Valentine, bassist Mickey Madden, drummer Matt Flynn and keyboardist PJ Morton, have won three Grammy Awards, enjoyed a number of hits, including Moves Like Jagger, Makes Me Wonder and Misery, and built a reputation as one of the best live acts around.
About Maroon 5
Maroon 5 first formed as 4-piece under the name Kara’s Flowers in 1994. Fronted by Adam Levine, Kara’s Flowers based their name on a girl the band members had a ‘collective crush on.’
Kara’s Flowers recorded one album but their first attempt was unsuccessful. It forced the band to rethink. They eventually changed their musical direction and name to Maroon 5.
Maroon 5’s debut, Songs About Jane was released in 2002 and saw the band opting for a straighter pop/rock sound which enjoyed great success with songs such as This Love and She Will Be Loved.
Touring their Songs About Jane album and writing new material delayed the follow-up for five years. However, when Soon Before Long was finally released in 2007 the album mirrored the success of its predecessor. This time the band had taken inspiration from 80’s artists such as Prince, Michael Jackson and Talking Heads.
Maroon 5's third album, Hands All Over, was released in 2010. It was recorded by the band in Switzerland and features the single Misery. Hands All Over saw Maroon 5 enter into a more pop focused direction. Their release found many new fans, pushing the album to No.2 in the US Billboard Albums Chart in its first week of going on sale and subsequently received multi-platinum certifications.
Part of the album’s success was down to the album being re-released in 2011 with the single Moves Like Jagger, which featured Christian Aguilera. Moves Like Jagger has become one of best-selling singles worldwide having sold over 14.4 million copies.
Following the band's busy touring schedule for Hands All Over, Maroon 5 returned to the studio to work on their next album. The result was the 12-track Overexposed. Overexposed, the band's fourth studio album saw the light of day in June 2012.
The album shot to No.2 on the UK Albums Chart and includes the band’s first UK No.1 single, Payphone. Their single saw Maroon 5 team up with American rapper Wiz Khalifa.
2014 brought a change for Maroon 5. They signed to Interscope Records and soon after released V, their fifth studio album, that is pronounced five. For the album, they teamed up with producers Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Shellback and Sam Martin while keyboardist Jesse Carmichael also worked with the band.
The release of V follows on from their tour of the UK at the start of 2013, which included two shows at London’s The O2 where Maroon 5 tickets sold out for both dates The concerts cemented the band’s status as one of the best live bands.
