Who are Maroon 5 Members and Their Lead Singer – Adam Levine? 

In 1994, a group of 4 high school boys had a crush on a girl named Kara. Fuelled by this common crush, they named their newly formed band, Kara’s Flowers. Three albums later, without any success, the band remained until after its 1999 album that failed to make any significant impact that could see them to the limelight. In 2001, Kara’s Flower was back but this time around, it was as Maroon 5.

Many years later, the group had come to be recognized as one of the best band in the world with millions of albums sold, multiple Grammys in the bag, American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, MTV Europe Music Awards, and many more achievements to show.

Although it is Adam Levine that many have come to know, Maroon 5 still has other very important members, some of whom have sustained since the formation of the band in the early 1990s. More so, while it has lost some members on the way, the band has also got others.
