Adam Noah Levine was born in Los Angeles, California on March 18, 1979. His mother name is Patsy Noah, she is an admissions counselor, and his father name is Fredric Levine. Adam's father's family is Jewish, while Adam's mother is of half Jewish and half German and Scottish ancestry.
Adam began playing music with his junior-high friends guitarist, Jesse Carmichael and bassist Mickey Madden in September 1995. Ryan Dusick joined the band as drummer and the alternative rock band Kara's Flowers were born. They released their first album, titled "The Fourth World" at 1997.
Then, he headed to New York City with Carmichael to study music at Five Towns College on Long Island. While they were there, he was surrounded by new music scenes and influences which give him whole new perspective on songwriting and singing. He dropped out of school after a semester and headed back to California with Carmichael to reunite with their friends and develop their band. He began writing a bunch of songs that were inspired by his recently failed relationship. After adding in new guitarist James Valentine, Maroon 5 was officially born. The band released their debut album "Songs About Jane", which included international hits "This Love", "Sunday Morning" and "She Will Be Loved"
