Music

In early 2005, Columbia Records‘ new president, Steve Greenberg, listened to Nick‘s record. While Greenberg did not like the album, he did like Nick’s voice.After hearing the song “Please Be Mine”, written and performed by all the brothers, Daylight/Columbia Records decided to sign the three as a group act.After being signed to Columbia, the brothers considered naming their group “Sons of Jonas” before settling on the name “Jonas Brothers“.

It’s About Time, the brothers’ first album, was released on August 8, 2006. According to the band’s manager, it was only a “limited release” of a little over 50,000 copies.
