About Maroon 5
Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as "Best New Artist" of 2005 and
going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5'sreleases
have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and
critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut
album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won't be Soon
Before Long, which included hits like "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See
your Face Again." In 2010, Maroon 5 released their third studio album, Hands
All Over, which was certified platinum. The collection featured two hit
singles including the Hot AC smash "Misery" and the anthemic "Moves Like
Jagger," which climbed to the #1 spot on the Top 40 and Hot AC charts, as well
as claiming the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. "Moves Like Jagger" was also
one of the best selling singles of 2011 with sales of 8.5 million copies
worldwide. With the success of the track on the Hot 100 chart, Maroon 5
frontman Adam Levine also notably became the first artist in the chart's
53-year history to reach #1 as part of a group, while entering the Top 10 at
the same time as a soloist, as he was featured on and co-wrote Gym Class
Heroes' top single, "Stereo Hearts." Maroon 5's latest album Overexposed has
quickly reinforced the group's status as a powerhouse in popular music with
all of the collection's singles quickly rising to the top of the charts. The
band's current single "Daylight" recently claimed the # 1 spot on both Top 40
and Hot AC radio charts. In the process, the band set a record for the most
#1's (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart's 20-year history.

In addition to his work with Maroon 5, Adam Levine has returned for the fourth
season as a coach on the #1 NBC hit series The Voice. Adam also recently made
his small screen acting debut on the new 2012 season of the hit FX drama
American Horror Story, and has landed a lead role in the major motion picture
film, Can A Song Save Your Life from director John Carney.

Stronger), sold over 20 million albums worldwide, 10 million albums in the US
and has had 10 singles in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.
She is the recipient of 3 Grammy Awards, 4 American Music Awards, 3 MTV Video
Music Awards, 2 Academy of Country Music Awards, 1 Country Music Association
Award and 12 Billboard Music Awards.Clarkson's last studio effort Stronger
debuted at #2 on both the Billboard Top 200 and Digital Albums Chart. The
album produced the smash singles, "Mr. Know It All" and "Stronger (What
Doesn't Kill You)" which marks Kelly's 9^th and 10^th Top 10 hit. "Stronger
(What Doesn't Kill You)" was #1 on Billboard's Hot 100 Chart for two
consecutive weeks (3 weeks total) marking her 3^rd #1 on the Hot 100 chart.

features 3 brand new tracks, including current single "People Like Us", as
well as a compilation of some of her greatest hits to date.

About PJ Morton
Born in the richly melodic soil of New Orleans, PJ recalls a musically
inspired upbringing where his talents were eagerly nurtured. Though
encompassed in a gospel environment, he was also strongly influenced by pop
icons the Beatles and James Taylor and equally moved by soulful legends Stevie
Wonder and Donny Hathaway. These three persuasions shaped PJ's growth as a
musician and propelled him to find his own artistry. After releasing several
mixtapes and albums on the indie circuit in the early part of his career and
collecting accolades as a producer and songwriter, PJ's big break came when
Maroon 5 asked him to audition for a keyboardist/vocalist spot in the band,
which ultimately landed him the gig. Shortly thereafter, Young Money
Entertainment's President, Mack Maine, signed PJ to his production company,
Soothe Your Soul Entertainmentand Young Money Entertainment. Maine
immediately recognized PJ's talent, along with Cash Money Record's Co-CEOs
Ronald "Slim" Williams and Bryan "Birdman" Williams, and Young Money
Entertainment's captain Lil Wayne. PJ Morton can currently be seen on the
road with Maroon 5 on their Overexposed World Tour. He will release his
highly anticipated debut album, New Orleans, on May 14, 2013 via Lil Wayne's
Young Money Entertainment.

About Rozzi Crane
Rozzi Crane was the first artist signed to Adam Levine's newly formed, 222
Records. Crane can currently be seen on the road as a featured performer on
Maroon 5's Overexposed World Tour. She also dueted with the band on "Come Away
To the Water," their contribution to The Hunger Games soundtrack. The San
Francisco-native's musical style artfully skips between pop, R&B, alternative,
and hip-hop, crafting a sassy, sexy, and soulful sound of her own. Rozzi is no
stranger to the spotlight, serving as the face for campaigns from both
BCBGeneration and Gap.

About Tony Lucca
Tony Lucca captured America's hearts on Season 2 of NBC's hit series The Voice
where he served as a contestant on Team Adam. His cover of Hugo's version of
Jay-Z's "99 Problems" reacted strongly, propelling Lucca to the #3 spot on
iTunes Overall Singles sales chart and #1 on iTunes Rock Singles chart. His
songs have been featured on TV's Friday Night Lights, Brothers & Sisters,
Shark, and Felicity and in Kevin Costner's feature Open Range. Over the course
of his career, Lucca has shared stages with *NSYNC, Marc Anthony, Macy Gray,
Johnny Lang, the late Chris Whitley, Sara Bareilles, and Tyrone Wells. Lucca
has also completed several cooperative tours with Jay Nash and Matt Duke, also
known as TFDI. Lucca is set to release his new album later this year on Adam
Levine's 222 Records.
