About Maroon 5:
Capturing their first of three GRAMMY Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 15 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5 won over fans and critics alike with their hybrid rock/R&B sound. The band recently released their third studio album Hands All Over, which was produced by studio legend Robert John "Mutt" Lange. Met by critical praise, with Rolling Stone stating it’s their “brightest sounding and poppiest album yet,” the album notched a #2 debut on the Billboard Top 200 Albums’ chart. Earlier this year, Maroon 5 received a GRAMMY Award nomination for"Misery," the debut single off Hands All Over, in the category of "Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals." The nod marks the group’s seventh GRAMMY nomination overall and 4th in that category. Most recently, Maroon 5 hit #1 on the iTunes Top Songs Chart with the release of their new song "Moves Like Jagger," featuring Christina Aguilera, which is currently blazing up the Hot AC and Top 40 charts. Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries around the world, including Hands All Over, which was certified gold by the RIAA in December 2010. In addition, frontman Adam Levine joined the lineup of celebrity coaches on NBC’s hit series The Voice, eventually coaching team member Javier Colon to victory when America voted him the winner of the show. The Voice will return for the second season in 2012.
