Within a year Jonas Brothers have successfully raised their reputation to be one of musicians worth acknowledged. If their first effort 'It's About Time' (2006) only managed to peak at #91, their self-titled sophomore album went straight to #5 in Billboard Hot 200 chart. In the first week of its release, the album was sold 69,000 copies, beating various artists' soundtrack of 'Hairspray' by hundreds. A review in USA Today read, "They've got fizzy harmonies, punchy power chords and sugary choruses that bounce off the walls." Prior and post the album's release, the trio have sold out tickets of their shows, graced covers of teen magazines and been signed for special appearances. As young icons, they have been booked to make a cameo in Disney Channel's 'Hannah Montana' TV series on August 17 where they will perform a duet with the main star Miley Cyrus. The brothers also jumped on their first major tour as the supporting act of Cyrus on that fall starting from October 18 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Unlike Hanson or other teen bands where the siblings have been bond as a group, Jonas Brothers did not start as a band but a solo. It started with a single project of youngest brother Nicholas Jerry Jonas who was born September 16, 1992. He was spotted by Columbia Records that immediately also noticed the talent of his two older brothers Joseph Adam Jonas (born August 15, 1989) and Paul Kevin Jonas II (born November 5, 1987). The three of them started performing as a trio called Sons of Jonas before eventually landing the more commercial name, Jonas Brothers. All this while their father would book them gigs and give finance to reach their dream.
