Born Adam Noah Levine in 1979 in Los Angeles to a retail chain founder and an admissions counselor, he grew up with his two brothers in a quiet area of the town. However, when he was 7, his parents divorced, and he was forced to attend therapy sessions to cope with the grief. Years later he stated that, even though he had cried and suffered for several years, he thought that he wouldn’t have needed therapy in the first place and hated the fact that he was forced to see a therapist.
Levine said that his family was fond of music and he cites his mother as providing him with an early musical education. Early influences included The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel and Fleetwood Mac. Levine went to the local Brentwood School where he attended classes. It is there that he met his future band members Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden. In high school he admitted to being absorbed by music and not being interested in what was being taught there.
Levine’s father as well as his maternal grandfather was Jewish, but Levine said he refused to take his Bar Mitzvah. He said that, in spite his colleagues advising him to “cash in”, he considered it a low way of dealing with religion ancestry.
In 1995, Levine, together with his two mates from his home town as well as Ryan Dusick formed a band named Kara’s Flowers. The debut album proved to be a commercial failure, and the members decided to disband.
After disbanding Kara’s Flowers, Levine went with his friend Carmichael to continue their formal studies in New York. They quit after the first semester and they soon reunited with the other two former band members to form a new band. They were introduced to the executives of Octone Records where they were advised to add a 5th member.
That is how Maroon 5 was born. The band would become one of the most popular in the world, releasing 5 albums and receiving two Grammy Awards, an MTV Video Music Award, two Billboard Music Award as well as others. Adam Levine's net worth is also on the rise due to his launch of his eponymous fragrance as well as his cooperation with Kmart to launch his own menswear collection.
