Maroon 5 began as a late-Nineties L.A. grunge outfit called Kara’s Flowers, featuring guitarist-singer Adam Levine, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, bassist Mickey Maddin and drummer Ryan Dusick, who were signed to Reprise while still in high school. They issued one poor-selling album and broke up for college.
Soon, though, they reunited, this time calling themselves Maroon 5 and adopting a poppier, more R&B-inflected sound, and adding guitarist James Valentine. In 2002 they issued their debut, Songs About Jane, a slow-building success thanks to the single “Harder to Breathe”. More singles followed, including “This Love”, “She Will Be Loved” and “Sunday Morning”.
