In 1995, originally the band was named Kara’s Flowers and consisted of Adam Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, and then-drummer Ryan Dusick. The band formed while in high school and recorded an album but unfortunately or fortunately it carried no success. In 2002, the guys added another guitarist, began playing shows in Los Angeles and New York, and recorded an album (Songs About Jane), and renamed themselves Maroon 5.
Popular singles from the album, “She Will Be Loved” and “This Love” gained the band national recognition and went on to be multi-platinum selling artist.
The band has gone on to build off that success over the last couple of album with singles like “Wake Up Call”, “Won’t Go Home Without You”, and “Makes Me Wonder”.
Adam Levine, lead singer of Maroon 5, has also gained his own personal success while be a constant host on the popular singing show, “The Voice”. Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Usher, and more have appeared as judges as well.
