Nick Jonas Signs On To Demi Lovato’s Team
The “Who I Am” singer is now the Musical and Creative Director for the “Skyscraper” songstress’ Neon Lights tour, hitting the road on February 9th.
Nick told Rolling Stone, "I'm overseeing video content, wardrobe, lighting and staging. And then I'm extending into the musical side of things, which includes creating the arrangements for the songs. I'm building what Demi wanted, which is a show without stops and starts."
Jonas also noted that he’s been working on the gig for the past few months. "Demi and I have the same manager. I was immediately excited when I was offered the position. The relationship that Demi and I had over eight years really gives me the insight into how to best communicate with her and her team."
"I've been in rehearsals with the band for the last two weeks. The biggest challenge has been just trying to rethink some of the music and see how we could compliment it with lights and video. I sat down with the band and said to them, 'You need to step into this like it's a new gig. None of these arrangements are going to sound like the originals, so you need to have an open mind.'"
Nick also has a solo project in the works- "Some of it is done and ready to be released. I've got a lot of things in the pipeline right now and I'm waiting to release some news about my music and my next steps. It isn't quite locked in yet, but I have started making some music and now it's all about lining up the pieces."
Sadly, there’s no JoBros reunion in sight. "At this moment we're all focusing on ourselves and the things we want to accomplish. That's especially true with Kevin, whose wife just gave birth. That's a major life change for him and a priority. Joe and I are really excited for him as well as the music we're making. I can't say that I know when [we might reunite] because there's lots of excitement about what we're making as individuals."
