Maroon 5 originated in Los Angeles, CA, where the members of the band first met. Maroon 5's Adam Levine (lead vocals, guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards), Mickey Madden (bass) and then-drummer Ryan Dusick joined together in 1995 while still in high school to form the rock band Kara's Flowers. Unfortunately, their debut album was a commercial and critical flop, resulting in the band being dropped from its record label. With no success for the next few years, the band opted to add another guitarist and asked James Valentine of the band Square to join. Soon after, the name Maroon 5 was adopted and they began to play gigs in and around Los Angeles and New York City. Their next step was to enter the studio and begin recording their debut album.
The group's debut album, Songs About Jane, was released in 2002, with their first single "Harder to Breathe." While Maroon 5 did not see immediate success with the album, the growing popularity of "Harder to Breathe" helped their album climb the charts and eventually reach the top ten on the Billboard 200, peaking at #6. Other singles "This Love" and "She Will Be Loved" off of Songs About Jane reached the Top 5 and helped Maroon 5 attain the label "multi-platinum selling artist."
Their sophomore album It Won't Be Soon Before Long (2007) built on the success of their first record and quickly rose to #1 on the Billboard charts. Singles like "Wake Up Call" and "Won't Go Home Without You" received heavy radio airplay and their single "Makes Me Wonder" ascended all the way to the top of the Billboard 200.
