Nick Jonas Biography

Name at birth: Nicholas Jerry Jonas

Nick Jonas is the youngest of the Jonas Brothers, originally a teen-friendly pop band made famous by their appearances on the Disney Channel. The band broke up in 2013 and Nick has been entertaining on his own since then.

Nick Jonas and his older brothers Joe Jonas and Kevin Jonas grew up in Wyckoff, New Jersey. As a child Nick began appearing across the Hudson River on Broadway, in small roles like Little Jake in Annie Get Your Gun and Chip in Beauty and the Beast. His stage connections led to a Christian-themed solo album, Nicholas Jonas (2004), which in turn led to the creation of the Jonas Brothers band. Nick Jonas played guitar and piano and shared lead vocals with his brother Joe.

The band released four albums in all: It’s About Time (2006), The Jonas Brothers (2007, including the hit single “S.O.S.”), A Little Bit Longer (2008, with the single “Burnin’ Up”), and Lines, Vines and Trying Times (2009). They took a hiatus in 2010 and 2011, but reconnected in 2012 to record a new album. That album was never released, and they officially broke up the band on October 29, 2013.

Jonas went on to release the solo albums Nick Jonas (2014) and Last Year Was Complicated (2016). He also has taken a variety of acting roles, with recurring appearances on the TV series Hawaii Five-O (2014) and Scream Queens (2015) and a starring role in the 2015 thriller Careful What You Wish For.

He married the actress Priyanka Chopra on December 1, 2018 in Jodhpur, India.
