Hello Whyvillians! Welcome to the second installment of "Music Talk"! Our music person we are talking about is Adam Levine.

Adam Noah Levine is an American singer-songwriter, musician and actor best known as the front man and guitarist for the pop rock band Maroon 5. He is also a coach on the American talent show "The Voice".

Adam Noah Levine was born March 18, 1979 in Los Angeles, California. To this day, he would be thirty three years old. Levine attended French Woods Festival of the Performing Arts Camp (Hancock, NY) with best friend Jesse Carmichael, guitar player of the band known at that time as Kara's Flowers. During this time, Levine worked a two-week stint as a waiter at Johnny Rockets. After dropping out of Five Towns College, Levine and Jesse reunited with Mickey and Ryan, but added former Square guitarist, James Valentine in 2001. Renaming the band Maroon 5, Levine and his friends began to compile all of their new-found musical influences into their music. While Levine was working as a writer's assistant on the television show "Judging Amy," he spent time writing the lyrics about his ex-girlfriend, Jane. Those lyrics became the album Songs About Jane.

Adam Levine had four appearances on television. In 2007, he made an appearance on "Saturday Night Live". In 2008, he made another appearance on Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars". Levine is one of the contestant judges and coach mentors on the singing TV show, "The Voice".

Levine's ex-girlfriend Jane was the inspiration behind the name of the band's debut album Songs About Jane. In a 2004 interview, he claimed that she had not contacted him despite the success of the album.

In September 2010, Levine said on the radio program "The Howard Stern Show" he had been dating Russian Sports Illustrated swimsuit and Victoria's Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna seriously for about eight months.
