When a cabal of record executives at Columbia released the Jonas Brothers into the world, they couldn’t have known, exactly, what they created. That might explain why they dropped the teen pop act in 2007—a classic case of a label underestimating an act. In any case, the new batch of record executives at Hollywood Records weren’t going to make the same mistake. They repackaged the clean-scrubbed brothers, got them opening for acts like Avril Lavigne and Miley Cyrus, and a year later the boys made the cover of Rolling Stone. Not a grassroots story, exactly, but we’re told they play their own instruments. They appear here in support of their fourth full-length, Lines, Vines And Trying Times.
