Nick Jonas’s BiographyNicholas Nick Jonas is an American singer, a member of the Jonas Brothers boy band. The band’s name speaks for itself: all the members of the band are siblings. After the band broke up in 2013, Nick Jonas continued his career as a solo singer and started acting in movies. Net worth: $70 million.
Childhood and First Steps to FameNick was born in a big, united, religious family from Texas (the family later moved to New Jersey). His father, Paul Kevin Jonas, is a musician, composer, and former minister at the Assemblies of God Pentecostal Church. Nick’s mother, Denise Miller, is a singer who sacrificed her career for her four sons: Nick and his three brothers, Joe, Kevin, and Frankie. Nick is the third child in the family.
From a young age, the boys showed remarkable artistic talents, which were encouraged and developed by their parents. Nick stood out amongst his brothers. Apart from having a stunning voice and perfect pitch, the boy obviously had the makings of an actor. Nick was 6 years old when he accompanied his mother to the hairdresser’s, and his voice was overheard by an agent searching for young talent.
A year later, Nick was already performing on Broadway; at the age of nine, he wrote lyrics for the popular Christmas composition Joy To The World. He sang it for the first time at a Christian radio station. Soon afterward he was offered a contract with Columbia Records and recorded another song, Dear God.
When the company’s representatives learned that Nick had two older brothers who were also musicians (his younger brother, Frankie, was too small at the time), they suggested the boys create a music band akin to Michael Jackson’s Jackson’s 5.
Consequently, the Jonas Brothers band was formed and immediately gained popularity far beyond America. Clearly, Nick was the indisputable leader of the team, due to his expressive voice and masterly piano and guitar skills.
Jonas Brothers and Other ProjectsIn 2005 the newly-created boy band started working on their debut album and opened concerts for popular artists, such as Backstreet Boys and George Michael. The band’s first single Mandy, accompanied by the music video, was released in December the same year. In August 2006 a limited release (50 000 copies) of the It’s All About Time album came out; Columbia Records wasn’t interested in investing much money in the band, so the boys decided to sign a contract with Hollywood Records.
In the spring of 2007, under the new label, the Jonas Brothers released another album, named after the band. The album was a success; it reached number 5 on the national Billboard 200 chart. Then the musicians appeared in one of the episodes of Hanna Montana with Miley Cyrus and their career skyrocketed.
In 2008 and 2009 the band released two albums along with Nick’s solo record Who I Am (2009), which was recorded together with The Administration band. Here is what Nick says about the making of this side-project:
I had written five or six songs that were on my heart, things that were just pouring out of me with this new and exciting sound. They weren`t necessarily right for the Jonas Brothers, but I thought they could be perfect for something else.The band functioned until 2011 when it became too difficult for Nick to combine the two projects. He ceased working with The Administration; besides, the brothers took a vacation from their main activities in 2012 in order to work on their new album. By that time they had terminated their contract with the recording studio, so they worked in a sound studio at Nick’s house.
The album was released on September 23, 2013, and on October 30 Jonas Brothers announced the split-up of the band. After these events, Nick started working on his second solo album; he was also helping his good friend Demi Lovato to organize her world tour; they sang a couple of duets together.
According to Zoomboola.com, in the summer of 2014, the singer released the Chains single, which didn’t gain popularity with the public unlike his next composition, Jealous which became his first top ten hit as a solo artist on the Billboard Hot 100. In the same year, the album Nick Jonas debuted at number six on the Billboard 200. The album, which included 11 songs, received mostly positive feedback from the critics.
In his music, Nick follows in Stevie Wonder’s and Prince’s footsteps. This creates impressive prospects for his future development.
In the summer of 2016, Nick recorded his third solo album Last Year Was Complicated. The album consisted of 12 songs, including the lead composition Close.
When I first started making it I thought I knew what it would be about.. Then I had a breakup. It then became very clear what this thing would be about... And that I would need to dig really deep. Shit is too real sometimes.. Reliving some of these real-life experiences through this music is hard.
