Jesse Carmichael (born Jesse Royal Carmichael, April 2, 1979, Boulder, Colorado, United States[1]) is an American musician who is the keyboardist for Maroon 5.
Carmichael first started playing the guitar in junior high, rather than the keyboards (for which he is known in the band Maroon 5). Along with friends Adam Levine, Ryan Dusick, and Mickey Madden the group Kara's Flowers was formed.
Kara's Flowers signed a recording contract with Reprise Records and produced one album, The Fourth World. The album found little success and, after the demise of the group, Carmichael and Levine attended Five Towns College. While in college, Carmichael began to play the keyboards.[1] However, two years later, Levine and Carmichael dropped out and headed back to California.[1]
All of the Kara's Flowers members eventually met up and formed Maroon 5, with the addition of guitarist, James Valentine.
