In early 2010, Nick Jonas, the youngest of the band members released a solo album. By solo I mean without his brothers - the album was released by "Nick Jonas and the Administration" and is titled "Who I am". I went on to purchase it for a bargain at Musica one day and fell in love with his voice. I always heard the rumour that Nick was the one who was supposed to record on his own but I suppose selling a brand of 3 cute brothers is an easier sale as opposed to a little boy (Although Justin Bieber has certainly worked in that scenario).
The first three songs of the album are the my favourites. His voice is smooth, sensual and memorable. Surprisingly Nick cut the album in eight days with the producer, John Fields. Rose garden is a catchy tune thus easy to sing a long too. The lyrics are surprisingly sad :(
Who I am is the most popular song on the album. With enjoyable lyrics and a nice tune it was an obvious hit.
However, my favourite song is a toss up between No.3 and No. 9. No.3 is "Olive & An Arrow" ,in this specific song, Nick's voice is so smooth and sultry. I've been told a time or two that I like soppy music but this is just a really good rock(ish)/folk(ish) ballad.
No.9 is "Vesper's Goodbye" and it is truly beautiful to listen too.
The Jonas brothers' have since reunited for further music albums but the problem I have with that is that Nick doesn't sing enough.
I like his celebrity status and his demeanour which was evident when he assisted Demi Lovato in America's X Factor season 2 competition. He is clearly the strong silent type and he's grown into a super hot man! He's the second youngest in the family and seems very well put together. He has managed not to get too in the media with every relationship he has or has not been in, which must be difficult for a good looking and successful man. According to the site www.whosdatedwho.com he doesn't even seem to have a particular type.
Either way, it's great that he's back with his brothers for now but I really hope that he'll release another solo album because there's just not enough *Nick Jonas* in the Jonas Brothers.
