Nick Jonas solo work inspired by Prince

91202A1_JONAS_N_B-GR_07Nick Jonas’ mother just recently announced that Nicky was working on a solo project in addition to his duties with his brothers.

Now, Nick has revealed that the inspiration behind the music of Nick Jonas & The Administration is none other than the purple one, Prince.

He said, “I’ve heard one or two stories about how the guys in the band were asked by Prince to come and do some things with him, but they had to decline. Prince played a big role…obviously.”

Nick said that he may even stop in Minneapolis in hopes of hearing from the Purple One himself. He added, “I think it’s going to be really funny when he sees them up on stage. And I’m just waiting to see if Prince is going to show up and be sitting there, like, with a blank face on. Hopefully he likes it.”

As far as inspirations go, Nick also listed that of Stevie Wonder, Bill Withers, and Elvis Costello and Johnny Cash.
