He enlisted producer John Fields, and they quickly pulled together an 'A-Team' of musicians, which they gave the moniker 'The Administration.' The Administration is made up of some of the world’s most accomplished musicians. John Fields plays bass, and he’s joined by drummer Michael Bland and keyboardist Tommy Barbarella, both of whom played in the New Power Generation.
Though guitarist David Ryan Harris played on the album, another former NPG member, Sonny Thompson will join Nick & The Administration on tour. Fans can catch a glimpse of their dynamic performance on the Grammy Nominations Concert Live! Special airing Wednesday, December 2 on CBS at 9PM.
The tour will feature the songs from Nick Jonas & The Administration’s Who I Am as well as some surprise cover songs and a handful of Jonas Brothers songs that are personal to Nick: 'With this tour we’re going to try to accomplish the same thing we did in the studio. That’s capturing some heart and soul in the music, and having fun doing it.' S-Curve recording artist Diane Birch will be the featured special guest. Diane's critically acclaimed debut album, 'Bible Belt' is in stores now. Dates under!
Disney sweetheart Debby Ryan is featured in the Holiday 2009 issue of RELATE Magazine. Deb proclaimed: 'You were made the way you were made: beautifully! Harness your perfection and 'Imperfections'.. At the end of the day it is your heart, soul, mind and emotions that matter.' Also included in the issue: 'I Lost My Leg in a Lawn Mower Accident.' Thx Jennifer!
Miley Cyrus dished to Seventeen about her daring & sexy style: 'I don't like dressing up that much, even for dressy kinds of parties and stuff. I like being more casual. I would much rather come underdressed than overdressed.'
My least favorite trend would definitely be high-waisted jeans. I like wearing my jeans low with Converse, and I was just not a fan. But when I started designing with Max [Azria], we did high-waisted shorts, and I said, 'Okay, I can rock these.'
I share a stylist with Nicole Richie, so it's really cool to see something from her line and be able to ask Nicole where she got it or what her inspiration was. I'm in a cool position where the fashion icons that I have are available to me, and I can learn from them.'
On not shopping online: 'I love instant access; I'm an instant gratification kind of person. That's why I don't shop online, because I can't wait for the three days for it to get to me.'
