Adam Levin: Early Life

He is Jewish but he said, “I felt as though a lot of kids were trying to cash in … I just don’t think it’s the most respectful way to deal with God and beliefs and years and years and years of cultural heritage.”
Peter Noah is his family member. Levin entered Brentwood School, where he saw his musical interest, and said, “a little rebellious. I didn’t want to do the things they were teaching me … [music] consumed my every thought.”
Adam Levin: Career
Adan join Kara’s Flower band in 1994 and after watching their performance at nightclubs they were signed by Reprise Records. And in 1997 their first album titled The Fourth World was released.
But it was not ranked well and the band broke. Levin says that “Kara’s Flowers was just floating up the wall beneath the sticks. Make a record quickly, and put it out. No touring base, no nothing. Just try to make it happen right out of the gate and it just doesn’t work.”
In 2002 Adam stated, “That’s when I started waking up to the whole hip-hop, R&B thing. We had friends named Chaos and Shit. It was not Brentwood High.” After some time they reunite with a new band and try all types of music. He also said that “We were just so sick of being a typical rock ‘n’ roll band … I felt like I needed to look elsewhere for vocal inspiration.”
Members of this new band are James Diener, Ben Berkman, David Boxenbaum, and James Valentine. The name of the new band is Maroon 5. Ben said in an interview, “ “seemed to be a very shy, shoe-gazing type … a fifth member could play the guitar to free up the singer [Levine], so he could be the star I perceived him to be.”
His first album was released in 2002, titled “Songs About Jane” and it become a sleeper hit. In 2007 their second album aired titled It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. About this album, Levin said that “I think this record is a little more self-confident and powerful lyrically”. In 2010, their third album was released as Hands All Over but it was a flop. Then Overexposed, the fourth album released, and in an interview with Rolling Stone, Levin said, “It’s very much an old-fashioned disco tune. I have a love/hate relationship with it – but mostly I love it.”
In 2014 Maroon5 fifth album was released titled “V” which means five. And about its success, Levin said that “We developed a really nice system on the last record — we found songs we were passionate about, developed them and put our stamp on them […] this time we kept it going but looked for different types of songs. In 2010, rumors came regarding unbending this band and Levin said that “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”.
