As told to Jennifer Vineyard.
To some extent, I was used to growing up in public. I was a pastor’s kid, so eyes were always on me, even then. I sat in the first pew of the church, and I had to wear a suit every Sunday, because my parents wanted me to be this role model that I didn’t always want to be. I preferred going to punk-rock shows in small venues in New Jersey, where we grew up, wearing my jean jacket and all my band pins. That’s how I fell in love with music, how I became obsessed with it. I’d stand there, watching the singer running around the stage, owning the crowd. I didn’t even notice whatever else was happening onstage. All I could see was the singer.
Like most Jonas Brothers fans I was so saddened by the news of the brothers breaking up. Tonight they released almost all of V, their fifth studio album that will not be released entirely. The brothers released the tracks via their fan club; Team Jonas. The album starts off with their second single this year “First Time” live from Los Angeles. I was able to shoot and review the tour, and listening to the track it felt like I was there once again with all of their older screaming fans.
The band announced they will be having an acoustic tour along with an all acoustic album entitled Imaginary Numbers.
