Bruno Mars was born in in 1985 in Honolulu, HI. As part of a musical family, Mars began performing at age four around the island, where he was noted for his impersonation of Elvis Presley. After graduating from high school, Mars moved to Los Angeles, CA, to pursue a music career. At first things went slowly for Mars. Originally signed to Motown Records, the deal produced no songs or albums. The bad experience ended working out in Mars' favor, however, as he met songwriter Philip Lawrence. They, along with engineer Ari Levine, eventually formed the production/songwriter group The Smeezingtons, which has written songs for artists as varied as Matisyahu and Cee Lo Green
Mars was finally signed to a new label, Atlantic Records, in 2009. Initially, he appeared as a featured singer on songs from artists such as Far East Movement, B.o.B., and Travie McCoy. Following this in May 2010, Mars released his debut EP, It's Better If You Don't Understand, and in October of the same year his first studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans. The albums and its associated singles proved to be a breakthrough for Mars, topping charts around the world and generating much radio play. Mars immediately took to the road, opening for Maroon 5 and co-headlining with McCoy on a European run. He then made his solo touring debut for the Doo-Wops & Hooligans/Hooligans in Wondaland Tour.
After spending much of 2011 touring, Mars returned to the studio. He released his second album, Unorthodox Jukebox, in December of that year.
