Adam Levine returns for the 13th season as a coach on the Emmy Award-winning NBC hit series "The Voice."
As the frontman of Grammy Award-winning recording group Maroon 5, Levine has left an indelible mark on popular music. The primary songwriter for the band and a guitar player, Levine's talents give Maroon 5 its signature sound. His heartfelt ballads and pop anthems have become part of the fabric of today's pop music scene.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Levine first connected with Maroon 5 members Jesse Carmichael and Mickey Madden while attending Brentwood School in Los Angeles. The band has since gone on to have massive critical and commercial success worldwide. Capturing their first of three Grammys as Best New Artist of 2005 and going on to sell more than 20 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries.
The band holds a Top 40 record that boasts a total of nine No. 1 hits among pop groups. In 2011, Levine was the first artist to have a No. 1 hit with Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," while simultaneously having another Top 10 solo hit on the Billboard chart with "Stereo Hearts" when he guested with Gym Class Heroes, which later went on to be No. 1. In 2015, Levine remarkably hit No. 1 again when he was featured on "Locked Away" by R. City. Maroon 5 are set to release a new album later this fall.
In addition to their immense sales history and chart dominance, Maroon 5 is also one of the most successful touring artists in pop music. When they wrap their current tour in September, Maroon 5 will have played more than 120 concerts in 30-plus countries with over 2.5 million fans in attendance.
Outside of Maroon 5, Levine has recently broadened his entertainment resume to include both TV and film roles. Outside of "The Voice," his other TV credits include "American Horror Story: Asylum," "Family Guy" and "30 Rock."
Levine was cast in a major role in director John Carney's 2015 film "Begin Again," co-starring with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo. He also performed the film's theme song, "Lost Stars," which earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Original Song. Levine later partnered once again with Carney to co-write the song "Go Now," featured on the soundtrack for Carney's 2016 critically acclaimed movie "Sing Street."
