From 2011 to 2019, Levine was a coach on NBC’s reality talent show The Voice The winners of the seasons (1, 5, and 9) belonged to his team In 2012, Levine made his acting debut as the recurring character Leo Morrison in the second season of the television series American Horror Story He also appeared in the films Begin Again (2013), Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping (2016), Fun Mom Dinner and The Clapper (both 2017) Levine launched his eponymous fragrance line in 2013 The same year, he collaborated with Kmart and ShopYourWaycom to develop his menswear collection He also owns a record label, 222 Records, and a production company, 222 Productions, which produced television shows Sugar and Songland In 2013, The Hollywood Reporter reported that “sources familiar with his many business dealings” estimated Levine would earn more than $35 million that year

Early life

Adam Noah Levine was born in Los Angeles to Fredric Levine, the founder of retail chain M Fredric, and Patsy (née Noah) Levine, an admissions counselor They divorced when he was seven and Levine underwent therapy Growing up, he spent weekdays with his mother and weekends with his father He has a brother Michael, two half-siblings—Sam and Liza Levine—and step-sister Julia Bartolf Milne Levine’s father and maternal grandfather were Jewish, while his maternal grandmother was a Protestant Levine considers himself Jewish; however, according to The Jewish Chronicle, he is spiritual but not religious He chose not to have a Bar Mitzvah as a child because of the custom of receiving Bar Mitzvah gifts, explaining: “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” Levine is a nephew of journalist and author Timothy Noah, and television producer and writer Peter Noah

Levine describes his family as “very musical” and credits his mother with “start me out on the path” He also attributes his mother’s idols – Simon & Garfunkel, Fleetwood Mac, and The Beatles – to shaping his musical style, calling them “a huge part of my upbringing” Levine attended Brentwood School, where he met Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden, his future bandmates He carried his musical interests to high school, where he states he was “a little rebellious I didn’t want to do the things they were teaching me consumed my every thought”

Kara’s Flowers

In February 1994, Levine, along with friends Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, and Ryan Dusick formed garage band Kara’s Flowers In 1995, the group played their first gig at the Whisky a Go Go, a nightclub in West Hollywood, California, with Levine performing vocals and guitar The band was discovered while they were performing in Malibu by independent producer Tommy Allen, who along with his partner John DeNicola, had them record an 11-track album Owing to a string of industry showcases in Los Angeles, they were signed on to Reprise Records through producer Rob Cavallo

In August 1997, the band released their first album, titled The Fourth World and also appeared on an episode of the drama series Beverly Hills, 90210 Despite high expectations, it had little success, selling about 5,000 copies Reprise decided to drop the band after Cavallo’s exit from the label Disappointed with the results of their album, the band broke up Later, Levine would say of the experience: “Kara’s Flowers was just floating up the wall beneath the sticks Make a record quickly, 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”

Maroon 5 and mainstream success

Main article: Maroon 5

After the break up of Kara’s Flowers, Levine, along with Carmichael, left Los Angeles to pursue higher studies at Five Towns College in New York On MTV News, in 2002, he said: “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” They dropped out after a semester, and reunited with Madden and Dusick to form a band once more They experimented with several styles, including country and folk, before deciding groove-based music would become their genre Levine explained the need for a makeover for the band: “We were just so sick of being a typical rock ‘n’ roll band I felt like I needed to look elsewhere for vocal inspiration” The band put together a demo that was rejected by several labels, before it caught the attention of Octone Records executives James Diener, Ben Berkman, and David Boxenbaum Following Berkman’s advice, the band added a fifth member, James Valentine, and was renamed Maroon 5 In an interview with HitQuarters, Berkman explained that Levine “seemed to be a very shy, shoe-gazing type a fifth member could play the guitar to free up the singer , so he could be the star I perceived him to be”

Around this time, Levine had been working as a writer’s assistant on the CBS television show Judging Amy; the program’s producer Barbara Hall was his family friend While on the show, he would spend time writing songs about his ex-girlfriend These songs were put into Maroon 5’s debut album Songs About Jane, which was released in June 2002 The album slowly gained airplay, and eventually became a sleeper hit, selling an estimated 10 million copies and becoming the tenth best-selling album of 2004, two years after its release In 2005, Maroon 5 won their first Grammy Award, for Best New Artist The next year, they won the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for the second Songs About Jane single “This Love”

By 2006, the band began recording again, and in May 2007, Maroon 5’s second album It Won’t Be Soon Before Long was released Levine described the album as “a vast improvement”, explaining: “I think this record is a little more self-confident and powerful lyrically” To support the album, the band performed on a ten-date club tour in which visited small venues in Europe and the United States from April to June 2007 The album and its lead, third and penultimate singles (“Makes Me Wonder”, “Won’t Go Home Without You” and “If I Never See Your Face Again”, respectively) each received Grammy nominations, although only “Makes Me Wonder” secured a win

After winding down from a world tour in support of It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, the band began recording in Switzerland in 2009, in collaboration with record producer and songwriter Robert John “Mutt” Lange Levine said Lange “worked me harder than anyone ever has” In 2010, Maroon 5 released their third studio album, Hands All Over The album did not initially meet expectations In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Levine explained that the album suffered from being “all these disparate ideas and songs that didn’t make any sense together” After the moderate success of the album’s first three singles, the band released “Moves like Jagger” which Levine classified as “one of those songs that was definitely a risk; it’s a bold statement” The single became a worldwide success; it was the ninth-best-selling digital single of 2011 with sales of 85 million copies and, as of 2012, the eighth-best-selling digital single of all time Levine later credited the song with “totally reviving the band”

Since “Moves Like Jagger” was the first time Maroon 5 had collaborated with an outside writer, the band decided to attempt it again on their next album, entitled Overexposed Its title is supposedly an allusion to Levine’s public ubiquity In an interview with Rolling Stone, he opined that is their most dance-driven album ever, commenting: “It’s very much an old-fashioned disco tune I have a love/hate relationship with it – but mostly I love it” The album and its lead single “Payphone” gave Maroon 5 their second Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance nominations In support of Overexposed, the band conducted the Overexposed Tour from 2012 to 2013 (with the European leg extending to 2014 due to scheduling conflicts), and also headlined the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, which included The Voice contestant Tony Lucca

In 2014, Maroon 5 continued their collaboration with Ryan Tedder, Max Martin and others to release their fifth studio album V (pronounced: “five”) Levine acknowledged that they followed the same song-writing process that they tried with Overexposed, saying: “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” Five singles were released from it In support of the album, the band undertook the Maroon V Tour, which kicked off with a show in Dallas in February 2015

In 2007, Levine had stated that he believed Maroon 5 was reaching its peak and might make one more album before disbanding He was quoted explaining: “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” But in 2010, he 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 we don’t have any plans on disbanding any time soon” He has also turned down the idea of having a solo career, stating that “there will never be a solo record I would sooner have another band” On February 10, 2017, Levine received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his contributions to the recording industry

Artistry

Levine’s interest in music started at around ten years of age, when he first started playing the guitar He found music as an outlet for his feelings, stating: “I picked up a guitar and that was it I fell so madly in love with it, it’s all I did” He performed his first professional gig at The Troubadour when he was twelve, but he was so nervous that he played with his back to the audience Throughout his childhood, he had a wide range of musical influences, including The Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, The Who, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, and Nirvana, and, in high school, Bob Marley, Bill Withers, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Phish and Michael Jackson He has also incorporated elements of The Police and Prince into his music In an interview with Billboard, he explained the diversity of his influences: “I love every single kind of music even the most saccharine, sugary pop song can be the greatest thing ever But so can a 25-minute crazy avant-garde fusion gnarly Herbie Hancock jam from the ’70s”

Levine remembers that listening to “Are You That Somebody” by Aaliyah convinced him to pursue a more soulful sound than that of the band he was performing with at the time, Kara’s Flowers His move to New York introduced him to a new music scene that involved hip-hop, R&B, gospel and soul music He took to changing his musical style, extensively emulating Stevie Wonder Subsequently, Songs About Jane was released, deemed “bluesy funk” and similar to the sound of English pop rock band Busted Critics also drew comparisons between Levine and Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay

While earlier work was deemed “vaguely funky white-soul” and “rock”, recent ones have been judged to have a more reggae, anthemic pop sound, evoking comparisons to Coldplay Levine refuses to fit his music into a genre, saying: “There’s so much variety in music, it’s silly to belong to a specific club and try to sound a certain way” He considers himself an orthodox lyricist sticking to conventional themes, acknowledging: “Romance, love, the lack thereof are still very big themes I haven’t figured out a way to use everything yet As a songwriter, I’m still limited to that one thing” He also claims he does not like mincing words, stating in a Rolling Stone interview: “I was so sick of typical lyrics like ‘Ooh, baby’ and ‘I love you’ and all this vague shit I thought the more explicit I got without being totally explicit was a nice approach”

Levine is a tenor, with a 4 octave vocal range and has been noted for his falsettos Salon wrote: “When he’s crooning come-ons, his voice lends the music a satisfying lewdness, a sense of sticky physicality that gives his snaky hooks a pheromonal urgency” In a review of It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, Entertainment Weekly described his vocals as “smug, R&B-slick deadpan there’s a twisted logic to his dispassionate delivery” In another review, Allmusic wrote “he knows that he’s a pop guy, somewhat in the tradition of Hall & Oates, but he isn’t trying to be retro, he’s making records that are melodic, stylish, and soulful” In a review of the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, The Boston Globe also commented positively on his on-stage presence, which “exude a sense of up-for-anything playfulness combined with a rock solid work ethic and a clear love for their audiences and performing”

Levine’s popularity outside of his musical work has seen him tagged as a “stand-alone star,” which critics say have pushed other members of Maroon 5 to the backseat, even in their music Their guitarist Valentine noted that his vocals were a central aspect around which their music revolved Conversely, others opine that Levine’s fame has been a boost to the band, with Paper writing: “Maroon 5 has managed to ebb and flow with the times thanks in no small part to their frontman’s uncanny ability to be extremely entertaining” Delta Sky described him as “a natural, if slightly neurotic, leading man” He claims that the image was consciously cultivated, explaining: “We talked about it a long time ago and decided I would step out, for us, not for me or my own ego We wanted there to be a frontman”

Personal life

In early 2010, while performing at the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue release party in Las Vegas, Levine met Russian Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue model Anne Vyalitsyna and they soon began a relationship They ended the relationship in April 2012 in an “amicable and supportive manner”

In May 2012, Levine began dating Behati Prinsloo, a Namibian Victoria’s Secret model The couple married on July 19, 2014, with Jonah Hill officiating the wedding Levine and Prinsloo have two daughters, Dusty Rose (born September 21, 2016) and Gio Grace (born February 15, 2018) On September 7, 2022, it was reported that Levine and Prinsloo are expecting their third child together

Levine, whose brother Michael is gay, is a supporter of same-sex marriage and LGBT rights In 2011, he made a video on Maroon 5’s official YouTube account in support of the It Gets Better Project In January 2012, he announced that Maroon 5 had changed the location of their post-Grammy Awards show because of the “unnamed Los Angeles restaurant’s backing of Proposition 8”

In 2013, Levine was mentioned in a hostile work environment lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by an unnamed security guard who claimed that Universal Music Publishing Group’s Santa Monica location was “infiltrated with pervasive drug use where you could smell marijuana seeping from various offices and openly used in common areas, and lounges” The guard claimed that when she complained about the cannabis smoke coming from one of the studios, she was told that “it’s Adam Levine—if he wants to come to the lobby and do a line of cocaine on the floor, it’s OK” In an official statement to The Hollywood Reporter, UMPG (Universal Music Publishing group) described the allegations as “absurd”

In July 2020, Levine and Prinsloo collaborated with Ferrari and Save the Children to raise funds to support US education programs during the COVID-19 pandemic In 2021, Levine and Prinsloo founded a tequila company called Calirosa The brand’s tequila bottles were made available from December 2021
