Biography


Nicholas Jerry Jonas a.k.a. Nick Jonas was born on September 16, 1992. Nick made his songwriting debut in 2002, when a holiday tune he'd co-written with his father found its way onto a Broadway charity album. A contract with Columbia Records followed two years later. He rose to fame as a member of Disney's pop/rock act Jonas Brothers. The band was formed with his equally-famous brothers Kevin Jonas and Joe Jonas. He shared the frontman role with Joe.

Jonas Brothers' journey to success wasn't easy. Their 2006 debut album, "It's About Time", was a commercial flop and Columbia Records dropped the group one year later. They then signed with Hollywood Records in 2007, and they began attracting new fans which mostly were female teenagers as new Disney stars. They appeared on the network's television shows, earned their own series, starred in a made-for-TV movie with Disney starlet Demi Lovato, and sold close to two million copies of their self-titled sophomore album. They replicated that feat one year later with "A Little Bit Longer, and returned in 2009 with Lines, Vines and Trying Times. All of the albums featured heavy contributions from Nick, who not only led the songwriting process but also played a wide variety of instruments, from drums to keyboard to guitar.
