Adam Levine is a prominent American pop musician, singer/songwriter, record producer and lead singer of the popular pop rock band Maroon 5, of which he is the founding member and lead singer. Adam started his musical career with the band Kara’s Flowers in 1994, of which he became the primary lead singer and guitar player. He left the group shortly after they broke up, and has since gone on to become successful as a solo artist. In addition to his solo work, he has also released music as a member of other bands including Weezer and Slint.
While at college in Southern California, Levine dropped out of sight for several years, working in various jobs in order to support himself. He worked as a landscaper, a photographer, a dishwasher, an electrician and a building contractor before deciding to pursue his dream and go back to school to get a degree in Music Education, so that he could begin to play in a band again. Although he didn’t have a full scholarship, he was still able to play in a small rock band, which was formed by college friends who knew him from his previous travels. The band, called Belly, went on to play gigs around the Los Angeles area.

After Belly folded, Levine decided to move to New York City, where he worked as an assistant to bands such as Caeli Seoul, before landing a role on Broadway as a singer/actor. He then appeared in the movie revival offers, playing the title role opposite Audrey Hepburn. This role proved to be a box office hit, and led to the casting of Adam Levine as a main player in the musical Les Misery. Though not particularly well received by critics, the film did receive great reviews from both the mainstream audience and the audiences of the film itself. It was also highly successful financially, bringing back many a nostalgic audience for its entertaining story and music.
When asked about his chances for a second season of Shades of Blue, Adam Levine said, “I am so happy that people saw what I could do as a singer. I had a great time with that show and it was a very diverse thing. I love singing and playing songs from Shades of Blue was my first experience of playing an actual character, and that enabled me to develop a really unique voice. I feel like a lot of actors have their strong points, and I don’t necessarily think of myself as a great singer-writer performer. “
