Nick Jonas may not be running for President just yet, but he does have his own Administration.
The 17-year-old musician caught up with USA Today to talk about the comings and goings of his new side-project group, The Administration. Made up of drummer Michael Bland and keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, Guitarist David Ryan Harris played on the album, but Sonny Thompson will replace him for live shows — which are coming up soon.
Nick shared, “I had written five or six songs that were on my heart, things that were just pouring out of me with this new and exciting sound. They weren’t necessarily right for the Jonas Brothers, but I thought they could be perfect for something else. It’s a cross between my roots in R&B and soul with a kind of rock/pop music behind it.”
Some of the songs off of their debut album, Who I Am include “The Rose Garden,” “Olive & An Arrow,” “Conspiracy Theory” and “State of Emergency.”
Nick Jonas & the Administration will make its live debut performing a single of the same name on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live!! special Wednesday, December 2 on CBS.
Who I Am is set to hit shelves on February 2.
