Rumors are swirling (again) about a Jonas Brothers break-up.
While this may be a scary thought for fans of the siblings, they can at least take comfort in one fact: Nick Jonas won’t be leaving the musical stage any time soon.
The 17-year old has formed a new group, Nick Jonas and the Administration. They’re playing at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville tonight and, prior to the show, Nick spoke to The Tennessean about forming this band. A few excerpts follow:
On going solo: 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.
On his siblings’ reaction: 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.
On fan reaction: The response has been amazing from the fans. Seeing that they’ve been so supportive and so passionate really shows me that the Jonas Brothers are so strong. It’s true that we have the best fans in the world, so I’m thankful for them and all that they do every day to support us.
On the future of The Jonas Brothers: We’re trying to continue to grow and learn as much as we can along the way. I think that we’re going to take a little while on the next record, really take our time, considering that we’ve released four albums in three and a half years.
