Jonas, which premiered on Disney Channel this past Saturday, stars Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas as members of a fictional band and lets the viewer in on the life of the young, rich and extremely famous.
UK writer Adam Tanswell caught up with the talented boys to chat about their music and how they have adjusted to having a TV show.
Q: So why do you think your music is so popular?
Joe: I think it’s because we write about things that are real to us, as well as things we go through every day. We’re the same age as a lot of the people that listen to our music and they’re going through the same things as we are, so we have similar experiences to talk about.
Q: And now you’ve got your own TV series, how is that?
Joe: It’s so exciting. We’re really proud of Jonas and we can’t wait for everyone to see it.
Q: Has writing songs for Jonas been different to writing for your regular albums?
Nick: Writing songs for the show has been a really cool experience because the writers always give us an outline of what they need for the episode and we write to that. We’ve been joking about it because it’s like now we don’t have to get our hearts broken to write a song about heartbreak. It’s a lot easier to do it this way.
Q: Were you scared about fronting a TV show?
Joe:We’re musicians, and acting is something that’s totally different for us, so we were pretty nervous about it.
Q: How different is acting to performing on stage?
Kevin: It adds a different element to Disney Channel. We get to do crazier things than you could do with a live audience because we have time to set things up.
Q: How similar are you to the characters we see on screen?
Kevin: Well, our stylist, Michelle Tomaszewski, works on the show, so the clothes are pretty similar. It’s really cool how they took the time to build things like that into the show.
