Suffering from bad acne, Levine was a self-conscious and somewhat shy teenager, even as he pursued his musical ambitions.
Levine has cited Stevie Wonder, the Rolling Stones, U2, Prince, Talking Heads, Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, and Herbie Hancock as early and major influences on his musical development.
