Joe Jonas

Joseph Adam Jonas was born August 15, 1989 in Casa Grande, Arizona.

He, like his brothers, grew up in Wyckoff, New Jersey and attended Eastern Christian High School.

When he was young, he never even considered a career in singing like his brother. He was all about the comedy. He wanted to star on a sketch comedy show like Nickelodeon's All That, although he has said that he had always had a love for music.

Joe’s appearance in Baz Luhrmann's Broadway production of "La Bohème" was his first one as a singer. Joe said that watching his younger brother, Nick, perform on Broadway was what motivated him to want to give musical theatre a try. Since discovering his talent for musical performances, Joe has never turned back.


After his brother, Nick Jonas', solo career as a singer had taken off, Steve Greenberg, president of Columbia records, heard Joe and his brothers singing and performing the song "Please Be Mine" written by all three. Daylight/Columbia Record decided to sign all of them as a group act.


Joe's main instrument is his voice, usually rocking a microphone and a mic stand on stage. He does, however, lend his keyboard and guitar talents in several songs ("Hollywood" and "A Little Bit Longer," etc.) His main instruments include:

  • Various pianos/keyboards
  • Various tambourines
  • Gibson Billie Joe Armstrong Signature Les Paul Junior (For the song "A Little Bit Longer")
  • Red Satin Gibson SG (Like Nick's)
