"My real musical discovery started when I was 10 with Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5, and acts that I connected with because they were young when they were doing it, like me," says Nick. "Then I kind of came into my own a couple of years later, I found new artists that shaped my musical landscape. For instance, Kings of Leon played a big part in that."
Nick goes on to talk about the influence his family has had on him (yep, that means Kevin and Joe, and even his dad!), as well as the role his faith has had in his life.
"Every kid at one point or another looks up to his dad. I knew for a long time that I wanted to do something big, and for a long time I thought it was gonna be to take over preaching from my dad," he says. "You wanna feel like what you are doing is important. For that reason, when we go onstage, we pour our hearts out."
Nick also posed for a multi-page photo spread, which channels the Jonas Brother's inner bad boy using a varied wardrobe, including a smooth leather jacket, a classic tee and a chic Louis Vuitton suit.
