Jonas Brothers entered the music scene with a youthful rock edge and an eclectic mix of high-energy pop/rock music that has resonated with fans and audiences around the world. Now, the Platinum-certified recording artists (Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas) add television movie acting roles to their impressive resumes with the music- and dance-filled Disney Channel Original Movie "Camp Rock."

The close-knit brothers, each a singer, songwriter and musician, filmed the movie in increments, traveling to and from its remote location outside Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in between performing sold-out shows on their headlining North American concert tour and recording their upcoming third album on a specially outfitted Gibson guitar tour bus.

They also recorded an original song for the movie, the rockin' "Play My Music," and middle brother Joe performs a ballad "Gotta Find You" and a duet, "This is Me," with fellow "Camp Rock" star Demi Lovato. Jonas Brothers join the "Camp Rock" cast in the anthem "We Rock."

Since wrapping production on "Camp Rock," they've completed a record-breaking sold-out U.S. headline tour, the Look Me in the Eyes Tour, which sold out in 2-minutes at the Los Angeles Gibson Amphitheater, the fastest sellout in the venue's 36-year history. They also performed in cities across Europe and completed a 70-date arena tour as part of the Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds concert. They were featured in the Digital 3D movie of that tour, a film that grossed over $65 million at the U.S. box office.

In summer 2008, they embark on the "Burning Up" tour, taking their music and touring to the next level for their ever-growing fan base.

The Jonas Brothers wrote and recorded their sophomore album, titled Jonas Brothers, released in August 2007 on Hollywood Records. It debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and went into high demand with over one million CDs shipping in just four months, certifying it Platinum in the U.S. It subsequently went Gold in Mexico, Argentina, Central America, Colombia and Venezuela just two months after its release.

Jonas Brothers are well-known to millions of Top 40 radio and Radio Disney listeners. They first debuted on Radio Disney in October 2005 with the song "Time to Fly" and soon thereafter, soared with the hit single "Mandy." Jonas Brothers songs are currently on Top 40 radio and Radio Disney's Top 30 chart, and when the brothers were guest DJs on Radio Disney last year, listener call volume spiked over 300 percent. Their most recent single "Look Me in the Eyes" debuted as the #1 most added at Top 40 radio. The album's first single, "S.O.S," went to #1 on the iTunes chart and, when added to the play list at powerhouse radio station Z100 in New York, was the #1 most requested song overnight.

The Jonas Brothers have millions of fans in Disney Channel viewers and Disney moviegoers around the world as well. They recorded the theme song to Disney's animated series "American Dragon: Jake Long," and that music video, along with music videos for their popular songs "Year 3000" and "S.O.S.," among others, have been regularly featured on Disney Channel. Their hit song "Hold On" is featured in the Disney Channel Original Movie "Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board." They are featured performing "Kids of the Future" in Disney's feature film "Meet the Robinsons" and on "The Little Mermaid: 2-Disc Special Edition Soundtrack."

In addition to their music videos, they were featured on Disney Channel in a concert special, "Jonas Brothers in Concert," originating from New York's Gramercy Park. They next star in a short-form reality series "Jonas Brothers: Living the Dream," a look at their lives while on concert tour, debuting in May 2008 on Disney Channel, and will star in the upcoming comedy series, "J.O.N.A.S.," scheduled to begin production in Fall 2008 for premiere on Disney Channel.

They will perform in the "Disney Channel Games 2008," back by popular demand from last summer's special presentation of the Games at Walt Disney World in Orlando. They also guest starred in an episode of "Hannah Montana" which was basic cable's #1 series telecast of all time in Total Viewers (10.7 million).

Raised in Wyckoff, New Jersey, the three Jonas brothers grew up in a family rich with faith. Their parents are both musicians - dad Kevin Sr. is also an ordained minister and mom Denise is a special education teacher. They now live in Los Angeles with their parents and younger brother Frankie.
