While the Jonas Brothers as a group are taking a bit of a break, Nick Jonas and the Administration are gearing up to start touring and promoting the side project. The youngest of the three band members, Jonas says the response for his solo album has been “so positive.” Nick is getting ready for his concert in Nashville, TN at the Ryman on Monday January 4th and had this to say about the legendary city of music and his brother’s support:
What made you choose Nashville as the setting to record your solo album?
“All of us in the band wanted to step outside of our comfort zone, to go to a place where we hadn’t spent too much time before, where we could get away from our element. We wanted to focus on this record.”
What led to the decision to make a new project? Had these songs been kicking around for years, or did you write them with a new project in mind?
“The writing for this record really started in October of last year. I was writing songs that, stylistically, weren’t necessarily like the Jonas Brothers sound, and I didn’t know what to do with them. I met with my brothers and talked to them about this idea that I had to do a side project, to go to Nashville with these guys and record (an album). I wanted to make sure that they were OK with it first before I made any move on it. They said, ‘We’re excited for you. We know that you have a lot that you’re passionate about, and we’re here to support you.’ So that worked out nicely.”
Nick Jonas and the Administration album comes out February 2. 2010 and the band will be on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on January 8th.
