Biography

Kara’s Flowers was the name of band that came to be Maroon 5. Formed in Los Angeles, California, the heavily and influenced group consisted of Adam Levine (vocals/guitar), Jesse Carmichael (guitar), Mickey Madden (bass) and Ryan Dusick (drums). That would be Maroon 5’s original line-up, with the addition of guitarist and songwriter James Valentine.

The members of Kara’s Flowers had been friends since attending junior high school in Los Angeles, California at Brentwood School when, in 1995, they formed a band named for a girl they sneaked flowers to on her birthday. They played their first gig on September 16, 1995, at the ‘Whisky A Go-Go’. Perhaps as a sign of the and sounds that the group would later take in as Maroon 5, Kara’s Flowers evolved to more and more of a and sound as it played on.

The band signed with Reprise Records and released its first and only album, ‘The Fourth World’, in the middle of 1997. Despite support slots on tours by Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger, the album failed to take off commercially up to expectations. Still, it garnered a large fan following and praising critical reviews. In 1999, the band parted company with Reprise Records.

    Maroon 5's style goes worse with every song, new stuff Moves Like Jagger just sucks - such a poppy pop. Kara's sound was great! [4]

    taí a cara de um bom pop rock! um rock descompromissado, tão bom de se ouvir e convidativo a uma dança.

    For me, Kara's Flowers is better than Maroon 5. Kara's songs simply have sort of a rock/pop sound, that appeals to me, more-so than the top 40 sound of Maroon 5. Adam can definitely pour on some very nice lead guitar licks. They should do a reunion-except their drummer, I believe, can no longer play. That sucks.

    I love this disco! I love Maroon 5 too, but I hated the way they became Adam Levine and some other guys. Seriously ...
