Though Jonas is quite young, he is in fact a Broadway veteran with previous roles in Annie Get Your Gun, Beauty and the Beast and Les Miserables. He also starred in a production of Les Miserables in London last year, and a performance of Hairspray at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles earlier this year.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
