About Nick Jonas
After electrifying music from multiple angles, appearing in blockbuster films, and launching successful business ventures, Nick Jonas still challenges himself and popular culture. Of course, his story as one-third of Jonas Brothers remains well-documented—especially given the band’s chart-dominating 2019 comeback Happiness Begins, sold out tours, and subsequent GRAMMY® Award nomination. At the same time, he established himself as a dynamic solo artist with a penchant for breaking boundaries. 2014’s self-titled Nick Jonas yielded the triple-platinum “Jealous,” double-platinum “Chains,” and gold-certified “Levels.” Its 2016 follow-up Last Year Was Complicated spawned the anthem “Close” [feat. Tove Lo] and brought his streams into the billions. In 2017, he contributed the Golden Globe® Award-nominated “Home” to the Ferdinand soundtrack. Meanwhile, his songwriting would be recognized with the prestigious Hal David Starlight Award from the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016 and release his solo studio album Spaceman [Island Records] in 2021. Along the way, he also captivated audiences as a re-occurring judge on NBC’s The Voice and in big screen favorites such as Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, UglyDolls, Midway, Jumanji: The Next Level, Chaos Walking and more. Nick is set to return to the silver screen in the forthcoming Amazon Studios comedy Foreign Relations, starring alongside Glen Powell. Nick, and his brothers kicked off 2023 with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame honoring the Jonas Brothers impact and legacy in the entertainment industry, and later confirmed the bands sixth studio album, The Album, which was released to rave reviews on May 12, 2023, via Republic Records. Next up, Jonas Brothers will embark on their massive stadium and arena run dubbed The Tour, leading with two sold out nights at Yankee Stadium on August 12th and 13th.
