About Maroon 5
Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as "Best New Artist" of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won't be Soon Before Long, which included hits like "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See your Face Again." In 2010, the band released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which was certified platinum. The collection featured two hit singles including the Hot AC smash "Misery" and the anthemic "Moves Like Jagger," which climbed to the #1 spot on the Top 40, Hot AC and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The track has also become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Following the release of the album, both "Misery" and "Moves Like Jagger" received GRAMMY nominations.
Maroon 5's latest album Overexposed has quickly reinforced the group's status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection's singles quickly rising to the top of the charts. The third single off of the album, "Daylight," claimed the # 1 spot on both Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts. In the process, the band set a record for the most #1's (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart's 20-year history. Maroon 5's latest hit, "Love Somebody," reached the Top 5 on the Top 40 and #1 on the Hot AC radio charts.
In addition to his work with Maroon 5, Adam Levine has returned for the fifth season as a coach on the EMMY Award winning NBC hit series The Voice. Adam made his small screen acting debut on the second season of the hit FX drama American Horror Story, and will soon be seen in a lead role in the major motion picture film, Can A Song Save Your Life from director John Carney, which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month.
