He wrote his first full song while acting in Beauty and the Beast, called “Joy to the World (A Christmas Prayer),” which would later resulted in a contract with Columbia Records.
In early 2004, Nick signed with INO Records and Columbia Records and started working on his self-titled album. With the help of his brothers, Nick completed the album, but it was a limited release.

They went to guest star in Disney’s Hannah Montana and land their own short series on the Disney Channel, called Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream (2008) as well as the Disney Channel’s original film Camp Rock (2008).
Later that year, the brothers released their third studio album A Little Bit Longer, which sold more than 2 million copies worldwide. The following year, they released their fourth album Lines, Vines and Trying Times.
Following the release of their fourth album, Nick began working on his solo career with the Administration, and released their debut album Who I am in February 2010.
In 2012, Nick was a guest on NBC’s musical drama series Smash, the comedy web series Submissions Only, and The X-Factor. The brothers also left Hollywood Records and have purchased the rights to their recordings, merchandising, and publishing.
