Adam Levine returns for a 14th season as a coach on the four-time Emmy Award-winning NBC hit series "The Voice."
As the front man of the 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 receive massive critical and commercial success worldwide, including a Top 40 record that boasts a total of nine No. 1 hits.
Maroon 5's discography features a succession of five multi-platinum studio albums that have resulted in more than 35 million sales, three Grammys and 12 Grammy nominations, as well as gold and platinum certifications in more than 35 countries. In 2011, Levine was the first artist to have a No. 1 Top 40 hit with Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger," while simultaneously having another Top 10 solo hit on the Billboard chart when he was featured on the Gym Class Heroes song "Stereo Hearts," which later went on to be No. 1. Shortly after, Levine remarkably hit No. 1 again when he was featured on "Locked Away" by R. City.
Levine and Maroon 5 released their sixth studio album, "Red Pill Blues," in late 2017 via 222/Interscope. The album, executive produced by J Kash and Levine, features special guest appearances by SZA, Julia Michaels, A$AP Rocky and LunchMoney Lewis. The debut single, "What Lovers Do" (featuring SZA), introduced the band's latest body of work with a proverbial bang, accumulating more than 429 million Spotify streams and 180 million YouTube/VEVO views. The band's new single is the highly anticipated track "Wait," which quickly climbed the Top 40 radio chart. The song clocked over 80 million streams and the newly released music video starring Alexandra Daddario amassed more than 16 million YouTube/VEVO views in just four days.
In addition to their immense sales history and chart dominance, Maroon 5 is also one of the most successful touring artists in pop music. On their most recent world tour, Levine and the band played more than 120 concerts in 30-plus countries to more than 2.5 million fans. Maroon 5 is set to hit the road again to kick off the first leg of their "Red Pill Blues" world tour on May 30.
Outside of Maroon 5, Levine has recently broadened his entertainment resume to include both TV and film roles. In addition to "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 2013 film "Begin Again," co-starring 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 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."
Levine was recently announced as the ambassador for Y, the latest masculine fragrance launched by YSL.
