When the two returned in 2000, they brought those influences with them.[6] Sam Farrar (bassist for Phantom Planet and former roommate of Levine and Valentine) says that the Aaliyah song "Are You That Somebody?" affected the band and influenced the song "Not Coming Home."[2] Jordan Felstein, a friend of Levine's family and a junior agent at ICM, stopped by one of the band's rehearsals and was so surprised, by what he heard, that he quit his job in order to manage the band full time.[6] .The band put together a demo that was rejected by several labels, before falling into the hands of the executives at Octone Records--James Diener, Ben Berkman and David Boxenbaum.^ The independent label Octone Records caught one those shows and offered Maroon 5 a deal.
