Nick Jonas is a singer, songwriter, and actor best known as one of the members of the American pop-rock band the Jonas Brothers, a band he formed with his older brothers Joe and Kevin.

Who is Nick Jonas?

Nick Jonas started his professional career at the age of seven, performing in Broadway’s plays such as A Christmas Carol, Les Misérables, Beauty and the Beast, and Annie Get Your Gun. As a teenager, he and his two older brothers formed Jonas Brothers. After they were featured on different Disney Channel shows and movies—including Hannah Montana and Camp Rock—the band gained international recognition and fame.

In 2013, the band took a hiatus after releasing four successful albums, so Jonas pursued a solo career in music and appeared in several films. His solo career consists of Billboard chart-topping hits such as 'Jealous,' 'Levels,' and 'Last Year Was Complicated.'

Early Life

Nicholas Jerry Jonas, aka Nick Jonas, was born on September 16, 1992, in Dallas, Texas, US. He was born as the third son of Denise and Paul Kevin Jonas. His mother formerly worked as a sign language teacher and singer, while his father is a songwriter and musician and a former ordained minister.

Jonas was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey, in a musical family, along with his older brothers Kevin and Joe. 

Early Career

Although all the brothers grew up playing music together, Jonas’ singing talent was discovered when he was spotted singing in a hair salon where his mother was getting a haircut. Thanks to that, he landed a role on Broadway at the age of seven. He played Tiny Tim in the 2000 Madison Square Garden Production of A Christmas Carol. He went on to receive roles on Broadway in Annie Get Your Gun (2001) and as a replacement alternates in Beauty and the Beast (2002).

While working on Broadway in 2002, he wrote a Christmas Prayer with his father titled 'Joy to the World,' which featured on the compilation album Broadway’s Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure, Vol.4. It was later released through INO Records in 2003 as Jonas’ debut single. This single was noticed by Columbia Records, which landed him to sign a record deal with Columbia Records in 2004.

He began recording songs and released his debut studio album Nicholas Jonas at the age of 12. The album featured 11 tracks, some of which were written by Jonas in collaboration with his brothers. Columbia Records president Steve Greenberg was pleased by Jonas’ voice and the three brothers’ collaboration. As a result, the trio was signed together by Columbia Records as the group the Jonas Brothers, and it eventually turned into a band in 2005.

The Jonas Brothers 

In August 2006, the Jonas Brothers released their debut studio album It's About Time through the Columbia label, featuring singles such as 'Mandy' and 'Time for Me to Fly.' But shortly afterward, Columbia Records dropped the band due to poor record sales.

In early 2007, the Jonas Brothers signed with Disney’s Hollywood Records, and they steadily built their popularity through soundtrack appearances on Disney Channel. In August, they released their self-titled album Jonas Brothers, and it became their breakthrough record. The album reached Top 5 on the Billboard Hot 200 chart in its first week and was soon certified double platinum. The album’s single 'S.O.S.' soared to #1 on iTunes.

In August 2007, the Jonas brothers starred on the Disney musical comedy television series Hannah Montana. They appeared in an episode titled Me and Mr. Jonas as special guest stars. Later, in May 2008, the brothers started their own show Jonas Brothers: Living the Dreams, but their real breakthrough followed their appearance in the 2008 Disney movie musical Camp Rock. The movie received 8.86 million views.

The Jonas Brothers became a pop-culture phenomenon with their third album, A Little Bit Longer (2008). The album sold over two million copies in the United States, and it also achieved multi-platinum status. In 2009, the brothers released their fourth album, Lines, Vines, and Trying Times, which offered a more mature sound.

From May 2009 to October 2010, the Jonas brothers starred in a new Disney television series Jonas, where they played as teenage pop stars who set out to find their real identity while dealing with stardom. In 2010, they also appeared in Camp Rock's second installment—Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.

In 2012-13, the brothers went on a world tour. They released a new single, 'Pom Poms,' in April 2013 as the lead single from the planned fifth studio album. They scheduled to start a tour later that year, but it was canceled. Subsequently, the Jonas Brothers officially announced that the band had split up in October 2013 to focus on side projects.

However, after six years of hiatus, the band was reunited in 2019. They released a new album, Happiness Begins, which featured their hit song, 'Sucker.'

Solo Journey

In 2010, Jonas released his solo studio album Who I Am under Nick Jonas & the Administration. His second eponymous studio album Nick Jonas was released through Island Records in November 2014.

In June 2016, he released his third album, Last Year Was Complicated, which sold 66,000 copies in its first week of release.
