Nicholas Jerry "Nick" Jonas (born September 16, 1992)[1] is an American singer-songwriter, musician, actor and multi-instrumentalist, best known as one of the Jonas Brothers, a pop-rock band he formed with his brothers Kevin and Joe. The Jonas Brothers originally started as an attempted solo singing career for Nick, but the record producer liked the sound when his brothers sang backup for him. Nick previously starred in the Disney Channel original series JONAS L.A. as Nick Lucas, alongside his brothers. He also starred in the Disney Channel original movie Camp Rock and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam. He formed the band Nick Jonas & The Administration, which released its first album in 2010.

Early life

Jonas was born in Dallas, Texas.[2] His mother, Denise (née Miller), is a former sign language teacher and singer, and his father, Paul Kevin Jonas, Sr., is a songwriter, musician, and former ordained minister at an Assemblies of God church.[3][4][5][6] He was raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey and homeschooled by his mother. Nick is of Italian (from a great-grandfather), German, English, Irish, Scottish, Cherokee, and French-Canadian descent.[7][8][9][10] He has two older brothers, Kevin (born 1987), Joe (born 1989) and a younger brother, Frankie (born 2000). He has one niece named, Alena Rose, who was born on February 2, 2014.

Career

Career beginnings: 2000–2005

Jonas's career started when he was discovered at the age of six in a barber shop, while his mother was getting her hair cut and was referred to a professional show business manager.[11][12] At the age of 7, he began performing on Broadway.[13][14] He had acted in several plays, including A Christmas Carol (in 2000 as Tiny Tim and Scrooge at eight), Annie Get Your Gun (in 2001 as Little Jake), Beauty and the Beast (in 2002 as Chip), and Les Misérables (in 2003 as Gavroche).[14][15][16][17] After Les Misérables closed, he performed in The Sound of Music (as Kurt) at the Paper Mill Playhouse.[18]

In 2002, while performing in Beauty and the Beast, Jonas wrote a song with his father called "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)." With background vocals from the Beauty and the Beast cast, Nick recorded the song on the 2002 annual Broadway "Equity Fights AIDS" album, Broadway's Greatest Gifts: Carols for a Cure, Vol. 4.[19][20] In November 2003, INO Records received a demo copy of "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)".[21] The label released the song to Christian radio, where it quickly became popular on Record & Radio's Christian Adult Contemporary Chart.[20]

By September 2004, an executive at Columbia Records discovered Jonas' song.[19][20] He was soon jointly signed to INO Records and Columbia Records and released the single "Dear God".[22][23] A second single, "Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer)" (a re-recorded version), was released on November 16.[24] It was supposed to be followed by a December release of a self-titled solo album Nicholas Jonas, but the album was pushed back.[25] It did, however, get a limited release.[26] Nick, along with his brothers, Kevin and Joe, co-wrote songs for the album.[19] In early 2005, Columbia Records' new president, Steve Greenberg, heard Jonas' record. While Greenberg did not like the album, he did like Nick's voice.[27]

Jonas Brothers: 2005–2010

Main article: Jonas Brothers

After meeting with Jonas and hearing the song, "Please Be Mine", written and performed by the brothers, Daylight/Columbia Records decided to sign the three as a group act.[19][28][29] After being signed to Columbia, the brothers considered naming their group "Sons of Jonas" before settling on the name "Jonas Brothers."[30] It's About Time, the brothers' first album was released on August 8, 2006.[31] According to the band's manager, it was only a "limited release" of a little over 50,000 copies. Because Sony was not interested in further promoting the band, the Jonas Brothers considered switching labels. The band was ultimately dropped by Columbia Records in early 2007.

After shortly being without a label, the Jonas Brothers signed with Hollywood Records in February 2007.[32][33] Around the same time, brothers began appearing in commercials for Baby Bottle Pops, singing the jingle.[33] Their self-titled second album, Jonas Brothers, was released on August 7, 2007.[34] It reached number five on the Billboard 200 chart in its first week. It has since sold over three million copies worldwide. On August 17, 2007, Jonas, along with his brothers, guest starred in an episode of Hannah Montana, which aired after the premiere of High School Musical 2 and the Disney Channel show Phineas and Ferb.[35] The episode broke basic cable records with a record 10.7 million viewers and became basic cable's most watched series telecast ever.[36]

The series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on March 21, 2010.[37] The second season follows the band on the European leg of their World Tour 2009.

In an interview with Rolling Stones, Nick stated "I'm overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging, and then I'm extending into the musical side of things, which includes creating the arrangements for the songs. I'm building what Demi wanted, which is a show without stops and starts. Demi and I have the same manager, so I was immediately excited when I was offered the position. The relationship that Demi and I had over eight years really gives me the insight into how to best communicate with her and her team."I've been in rehearsals with the band for the last two weeks. The biggest challenge has been just trying to rethink some of the music and see how we could compliment it with lights and video. I sat down with the band and said to them, 'You need to step into this like it's a new gig. None of these arrangements are going to sound like the originals, so you need to have an open mind.'"[83]

He joined Demi Lovato on stage during select dates of the Neon Lights Tour and performed the songs Stop The World, Here We Go Again and Catch Me with her.[84][85]

During that same interview with Rolling Stone he also said that once the tour gets off the ground, he will turn his attention towards his upcoming solo project. "Some of it is done and ready to be released," he says. "I've got a lot of things in the pipeline right now and I'm waiting to release some news about my music and my next steps. It isn't quite locked in yet, but I have started making some music and now it's all about lining up the pieces."[83]
