Maroon 5 is an American pop rock band from Los Angeles, California.[1][2] It currently consists of lead vocalist Adam Levine, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Jesse Carmichael, lead guitarist James Valentine, drummer Matt Flynn, keyboardist PJ Morton and multi-instrumentalist Sam Farrar. Original members Levine, Carmichael, bassist Mickey Madden, and drummer Ryan Dusick first came together as Kara's Flowers in 1994, while they were still in high school.

After self-releasing their independent album We Like Digging?, the band signed to Reprise Records and released the album The Fourth World in 1997. The album garnered a tepid response, after which the record label dropped the band and the members focused on college. In 2001, the band re-emerged as Maroon 5, pursuing a different direction and adding guitarist Valentine.[3] The band signed with Octone Records, an independent record label with a separate joint venture relationship with J Records and released their debut album Songs About Jane in June 2002. Aided by the singles, "Harder to Breathe", "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved", the album peaked at number six on the Billboard 200 chart,[4] and went quadruple platinum in 2005. In the same year, the band won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.[5] In 2006, Dusick left the band after suffering from serious wrist and shoulder injuries and was replaced by Matt Flynn.

The band's second album It Won't Be Soon Before Long, was released in May 2007.[6] It debuted at number one on the US Billboard 200 chart and the lead single "Makes Me Wonder", became the band's first number-one single on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2010, the band released the third album Hands All Over, to mixed reviews, re-releasing a year later to include the single "Moves like Jagger", which topped the Billboard Hot 100. In 2012, Carmichael left the group and was replaced by musician PJ Morton, as the band released the fourth album Overexposed, with the song "One More Night", topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart for nine consecutive weeks.

In 2014, Carmichael rejoined the band alongside Morton to record the fifth album V (pronounced: "five"), with the band signed to Interscope Records and Levine's own label 222 Records. Following the release of V, it reached number one on the Billboard 200. In 2016, Maroon 5 recruited their long-time collaborator Sam Farrar, as the band continued for the sixth studio album Red Pill Blues, which was released in November 2017. With the addition of Morton and Farrar, the band's lineup increased to seven members. The successful singles of both albums "Sugar" and "Girls Like You" peaked at numbers two and one on the Hot 100 chart respectively. Maroon 5 has sold more than 120 million records, making them one of the world's best-selling music artists.[7]

History[edit]

1994–2001: Kara's Flowers and the formation of Maroon 5[edit]

Adam Levine was introduced to Ryan Dusick by a mutual friend and guitarist, Adam Salzman. Levine was 15 years old and Dusick was 16.[8] Three of the five members of the band started playing together at age 12. The four original members of the band met while attending Brentwood School in Los Angeles.[9][10] While attending Brentwood School, Adam Levine and Jesse Carmichael joined up with Mickey Madden and Ryan Dusick to form Kara's Flowers,[11] a rock band. The name was taken from a girl that went to their high school that the band had a "collective crush" on.[10] While they were playing a beach party in Malibu, independent producer Tommy Allen heard them play and offered to manage them and record a complete record with his partner, songwriter John DeNicola, who is known for his work on Dirty Dancing (1987) – including "(I've Had) The Time of My Life". Producer Rob Cavallo's management team heard the record Allen and DeNicola produced, which eventually led Cavallo to offer them a deal with Reprise Records, re-recording the album.[12] However, after the release of The Fourth World, during Levine and Madden's senior year of high school in 1997, it had morphed into a band with a style reminiscent of 1960s Britpop.[10] Despite high expectations from the band and record company, the album failed to catch on and their lead single, "Soap Disco", was a failure.[13] According to Levine, the failure of the album was "a huge disappointment" that nearly led them to break up in 1998.[10][14] The album sold around 5,000 copies and the band was dropped after one month.[15]

Dusick and Madden attended college locally at University of California, Los Angeles, while Levine and Carmichael relocated to the East coast to attend Five Towns College, in Dix Hills, Long Island, New York.[16] While Levine and Carmichael were in New York, they began to take notice of the urban music surrounding them and later let the style influence the songs they wrote.[17]

When the band returned in 2001, they brought those influences with them.[14] Sam Farrar (bassist of the band Phantom Planet) explained that the Aaliyah song "Are You That Somebody?" affected the band and influenced the song "Not Coming Home".[10] Producer Tim Sommer signed them to a demo deal with MCA Records and produced three tracks with them in Los Angeles in the middle of 2001, with Mark Dearnley engineering. Against Sommer's advice, MCA declined to pick up the band, and these tracks were never released. The band put together a demo that was rejected by several labels, before falling into the hands of Octone Records executives James Diener, Ben Berkman and David Boxenbaum.[14] While looking for talent for the Octone label, Berkman was given a bunch of demos by the brother of a former colleague at Columbia Records and the song that caught his attention was "'Sunday Morning'" which he referred it as a "genius song".[15] Berkman was surprised the song was credited to Kara's Flowers, because the band sounded completely different from the one he had heard while at Warner Bros. Records.[18]

Berkman encouraged Diener and Boxenbaum to fly out to Los Angeles to watch a showcase gig at The Viper Room for the four-piece Kara's Flowers.[15] After watching Levine onstage, they were convinced. Berkman told HitQuarters he believed what the band needed was a "fifth member to play the guitar and free up the singer, so he could be the star I perceived him to be".[15] Octone immediately insisted that the band change its name to break with its pop past.[15] Also, the label began looking for a full-time guitarist to enable Levine to focus on performing as the frontman. James Valentine (from the L.A. band Square) was recruited for the job.[14] On his joining the band, Valentine commented: "I became friends with them and we sort of started jamming together, it was very much like I was cheating on my band, we were having sort of an affair and I eventually quit my other band to join up with them."[14] After hearing Levine play, Valentine noticed his affinity for Phish and the two musicians bonded over the band.[19]

2002–2006: Songs About Jane and Dusick's departure[edit]

Between the time that we started making the album [Songs About Jane] in 2001 and the time the album reached the crest of its success in 2004, we went from being starving musicians wondering what the future held to riding a wave of success beyond our wildest expectations.

 —Ryan Dusick, Maroon 5's original drummer, who officially left the band in 2006, due to injuries to his shoulders and wrists sustained from constant touring.[20][21]

James Valentine attended Berklee College of Music with John Mayer in 1996, where they developed a rapport. In 2002, the two reconnected at a Mayer radio broadcast. After Mayer heard their album, he was so impressed (particularly by "This Love", which became the most successful release off the album and propelled the band to superstardom) that he invited them to open for him during his early 2003 tour.[10] The first single, "Harder to Breathe", slowly started to pick up airplay which helped spur sales of the album. By March 2004, the album had reached the Top 20 of the Billboard 200 and "Harder to Breathe" had made the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles charts. The album peaked at number six on the Billboard 200 in September 2004,[22] 26 months after its release; this was the longest period between an album's release and its initial Top 10 appearance since SoundScan results were included in the Billboard 200 in 1991.[23] The album went on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide. This had all happened after the band "abandoned its post-grunge roots for a radio-friendly pop-soul sound, even while dabbling in hard rock".[attribution needed][24] Mayer invited the band to open for him again in 2004.[25] Over the next three years, the band toured virtually non-stop, including visits to seventeen countries. During this time, the band toured with Michelle Branch, Graham Colton, and the Rolling Stones.[26][27] Other acts the band toured alongside included Gavin DeGraw,[28] Matchbox Twenty, Sugar Ray,[29] The Counting Crows,[30] Phantom Planet,[31] the Hives,[32] Dashboard Confessional,[33] Simon Dawes,[34] the Thrills, Thirsty Merc, Marc Broussard, the Donnas, the RedWest, Michael Tolcher, and Guster.[35]

Songs About Jane eventually reached No. 1 on the Australian albums (ARIA),[36] while "Harder to Breathe" made the Top 20 singles charts in the US[37] and UK,[36] and Top 40 in Australia and New Zealand.[36] The album also eventually climbed to number-one in the UK.[36] The second single, "This Love", reached number five in the US,[37] number three in the UK, and number eight in Australia.[36] The third single, "She Will Be Loved", reached the number five in both the US[37] and the UK, and number-one in Australia.[36] The fourth single, "Sunday Morning", reached the Top 40 in the US,[37] UK, and Australia.[36] Maroon 5 played Live 8, in Philadelphia in 2005. Their set included a cover of Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World" and frontman Levine performed with one of his heroes, and the closing act, Stevie Wonder.[38] On May 13, 2005, in Santa Barbara, California, the band wrapped up the 2005 Honda Civic Tour, which it headlined.[39] On June 9, 2005, the band performed at the American Film Institute's tribute to filmmaker George Lucas. Lucas himself had selected Maroon 5 for the event, as it was his children's favorite band at the time.[40] Over the years of touring with the band their drummer, percussionist and backing vocalist Ryan Dusick had been suffering from the touring life.[41] The strains of non-stop touring aggravated an old sports injury.[9] After several absences from the tour with Ryland Steen and Josh Day taking his place, Dusick officially left the band in September 2006.[21] Matt Flynn, the former drummer of Gavin DeGraw and The B-52's, joined the band as Dusick's replacement.[42]

2007–2008: It Won't Be Soon Before Long[edit]

After recording for eight months, Maroon 5's second album It Won't Be Soon Before Long, was released worldwide in May 2007 by A&M Octone Records.[43] Levine described the follow-up to Songs About Jane is "sexier and stronger",[44] gaining inspiration from iconic 80s artists such as Prince, Shabba Ranks, Michael Jackson and Talking Heads.[45] Ann Powers writing for Los Angeles Times said It Won't Be Soon Before Long is "An icy-hot blend of electro-funk and blue-eyed soul that works its cruel streak with the confidence of Daniel Craig's James Bond".[46] Before its release, "Makes Me Wonder" was the No. 1 selling single and video on iTunes.[44] It was also the No. 1 selling album, with more than 50,000 digital pre-sales.[44] After its release, the album broke iTunes sales records its week of release, selling over 101,000 copies.[47] The first single "Makes Me Wonder", was released to radio March 27, 2007.

Levine stated that he believed the band was reaching its peak and may make one more album before disbanding.[62] He explained, "Eventually I want to focus on being a completely different person because I don't know if I want to do this into my 40s and 50s and beyond, like the Rolling Stones".[63] Levine later dispelled any rumors of the band breaking up, saying: "I love what I do and think that, yes, it might be tiring and complicated at times [but] we don't have any plans on disbanding any time soon".[64]

On June 8, the band performed in Capital's Summertime Ball, in the UK.[163] On September 20, 2019, Maroon 5 released the song "Memories",[164] which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.[165] It serves as the lead single of their upcoming seventh studio album.[166] The following month, guitarist James Valentine revealed the details about the band working on their new album, stating: "It does foreshadow a new album, which we’re currently in the studio working on. But, yeah, we are working on a new record."[167]

On February 1, 2020, the band performed in the Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest, a pre-show for Super Bowl LIV at American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida,[168] with special guest Dan + Shay.[169] The year's pre-Super Bowl performance received positive reception by audiences, an improvement to the band's previous Super Bowl performance in 2019.[citation needed] Maroon 5 launched its 2020 Tour in South America from February 23 to March 10, 2020.[170][171] The North American leg was originally scheduled for summer 2020,[172] but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates were rescheduled and will be billed on the band's upcoming 2021 Tour.[173][174] The tour is set to begin on March 9, 2021, and will end on October 2, 2021.

In June 2020, it was announced that David Dobkin was directing a documentary film about the band. It is expected to be released in 2021.[175]

On June 27, 2020, bassist Mickey Madden was arrested in Los Angeles due to an allegation of domestic violence[176] and several days later, on July 14, 2020, Madden announced on People Magazine, that he is retiring from the band "for the foreseeable future".[177]

On July 20, Maroon 5 announced the second single of the seventh album titled "Nobody's Love", was released on July 24.[178]

Musical style and influences[edit]

Maroon 5's musical style has generally been regarded as pop,[179] pop rock,[179][180] funk rock,[181][182] dance-pop,[183][184] blue-eyed soul,[185][186] neo soul,[179] R&B,[187] and soft rock.[188][189]

I think the classic Maroon 5 song is minor, and it has some funk, Nile Rodgers-style guitar and the lyrics are probably about getting your heart broken. So minor, funk and heartbreak -- that's the Maroon 5 formula.

—James Valentine[190]

Adam Levine has stated: "Everything that's written and performed and put together pretty much comes from us. I just think people would be surprised to know that we're a self-contained unit. We're a band that does their own thing. There's no puppet master."[191] However, in an article about the songwriter and producer Benny Blanco, it is revealed that at least some of the band's songs, such as "Moves like Jagger," are the product of efforts by or collaborations with, professional songwriters and producers.[192] In the same article, Levine says, "It's almost as if [Benny Blanco] has the Midas touch in putting the right people together at the right time to create a musical moment. He's about collaboration. And he's so good at nailing down who does everything best."[193]

Adam Levine cited British band Oasis as "one of the best bands ever" and said "We love Oasis".[194] The band has cited Michael Jackson, The Beatles, The Police, Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder, the Bee Gees, Tonic, Prince, Tupac Shakur and Marvin Gaye as influences.[195][196][197]

Adam Levine has also cited Billy Joel as an influence.[38] Furthermore, guitarist James Valentine said he was influenced by guitarists like Pat Metheny, Bill Frisell and John Scofield, as well as the rock band Queens of the Stone Age.[198] The band's songs tend to be very guitar-heavy, often accompanied by piano or synthesizer. The theme in most of their songs is love, frequently lost love; songs like "This Love", "Makes Me Wonder" and "Misery" have a very cynical tone, often expressing dissatisfaction with a relationship, while their more heartfelt and emotional songs such as "She Will Be Loved" and "Never Gonna Leave This Bed" express a longing for a romantic relationship. "Makes Me Wonder" has a secondary theme, in which Levine expresses his disillusionment and frustration with the state of American politics and the Iraq War.[199]

The band's style changes from album to album. Songs About Jane consists of songs about Levine's ex-girlfriend Jane Herman. On It Won't Be Soon Before Long, however, the songs are less personal and are more electric with more use of synthesizers, creating a retro feel. Hands All Over continues the band's lost love theme, along with songs about infatuation and was re-released in 2011, with the hit single "Moves like Jagger", an electropop song which represents a drastic change in the band's sound, with more of a dance feel to it. "It was one of those songs that was definitely a risk", Levine said. "It's a bold statement. We've never really released a song like that. But it's exciting to do something different, do something new. I'm just glad that everyone likes it."[200] James Valentine called Overexposed "our most 'pop' record ever and we weren't shy about really going for it".[201] They also have experimented with new wave[202][203][204] and disco[205][206] sounds on several albums. Their early work as Kara's Flowers has been tagged as having a grunge sound a la Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Stone Temple Pilots, among others.[207]

Controversies[edit]

In an interview with Variety in November 2018, the frontman of the band, Adam Levine, when asked if the band is pop, rock or urban, said, "Something unique to this band is that we have always looked to hip-hop, R&B, all rhythmic forms of music, from back when we were writing our first album to now. Rock music is nowhere, really. I don’t know where it is. If it’s around, no one’s invited me to the party. All of the innovation and the incredible things happening in music are in hip-hop".[208] This statement prompted widespread criticism from rock fans and some rockstars such as Slipknot's frontman Corey Taylor. Despite this backlash, the band saw a continued increase in popularity and commercial success in 2018, leading them to become one of the world's best-selling pop bands. They continue to create mostly hip-hop and pop music.[209][210]

On February 27, 2020, the band performed at the Viña del Mar International Song Festival in Chile. The presentation, which began 29 minutes late, was listed as "mediocre" by part of the press. The BBC said that Adam Levine performed the songs with "lack of energy and out of tune", adding that the disappointment of some fans increased when videos were leaked. The videos showed Levine when he was leaving the stage, angry and saying that "they were deceived", "that was a TV show! ... that was not a concert", and that Viña del Mar is a "shitty city," sparking criticism.[211] Levine later posted on Instagram to apologize for the incident[212] and the band said it had experienced technical difficulties with the audio feed to Levine's ear pieces.[213]
