There's nothing common about these three brothers from Wyckoff, New Jersey. Their fast rise through the entertainment industry ranks--including a Grammy nomination, sold-out world tours, their own TV show, and best-selling albums -- has made the world stand up and pay attention to Jonas Brothers.
The band traces its origins to impromptu concerts in the family basement. In 2005, the trio signed their first label deal, but it wasn't until the following year when they signed with Hollywood Records that the hard work began to pay off. Their premiere single, “S.O.S.,” quickly hit No. 1 on iTunes, while the CD shot to No. 5. The brothers star in the Disney Channel original movie “Camp Rock” and its sequel, as well as their own Disney Channel comedy series, titled “JONAS,” followed up with a second season titled “JONAS L.A.”
The release of “A Little Bit Longer” in 2008 changed the game. It hit the very top of the charts, while the “Burning Up” tour was among the year’s highest grossing. Their film “Jonas Brothers: 3-D Concert Experience” proved a box-office hit. Jonas Brothers received their first Grammy nomination earlier this year for Best New Artist, and have won multiple awards from around the world, including an American Music Award, as well as multiple Kids' Choice and Teen Choice awards. Following the release of their third album, “Lines, Vines, and Trying Times,” Jonas Brothers embarked on the U.S. segment of their “Jonas Brothers World Tour 2009” with featured guests Jordin Sparks and Honor Society.
Judging by their resume alone, Jonas Brothers stand today at the pinnacle of success. But Nick, Joe and Kevin would much rather be judged by the quality of their music and whether they are making a permanent stamp on contemporary pop.
What next? The sky’s the limit.
