Nick Jonas and the Administration are just days away from starting out on their first ever tour!
The 17-year-old musician sat down with The Tennessean to chat about his upcoming Ryman show, recording in Music City and trying to balance work and play. Check it:
On being considered somewhat of a workaholic: “I donâ€™t think Iâ€™m a workaholic, necessarily. I know that there are people out there who are much more talented than I am who would love to be able to play with some of these guys and to do what I get to do, so Iâ€™m just trying to take advantage of the opportunity, and really trying to enjoy each moment.”
On working on the record in Nashville: “All of us in the band wanted to step outside of our comfort zone, to go to a place where we hadnâ€™t spent too much time before, where we could get away from our element. We wanted to focus on this record. I love Nashville. Itâ€™s Music City. The people there are amazing. Itâ€™s crazy to think that you can walk down the street and probably two out of five people you see are musicians or songwriters of some sort. It makes for a good environment to be creative in.”
On playing a show at the Ryman Auditorium: “I think weâ€™re going to try to make it an annual thing. Every time youâ€™re there, you can kind of feel the presence of the legends that played there. The crowd is full of musicians who are probably better than I am. I try to keep that in mind and have a good time.”
Nick & The Administration will rock out the Ryman THIS Monday, January 4 @ 7PM ET/PT. Check to see if there are still tickets available!
