Aly michalka dating 2016
"My husband [Stephen Ringer] encouraged us to come back to music," Aly says.
"He saw us singing and writing round the house so he encouraged us to get back out there and write music and perform...[Finally] we just said, 'Okay, let's give this one last go.'" They tapped their good friend, producer and songwriter Mike Elizondo, who they had written music with in the past, and got the ball rolling.
Aly: AJ and I had each other, which was really helpful. Raviv [Ullman, who played Phil] and I keep in touch; we're Instagram buddies.
Whenever I'm in New York or he's in LA, we try to see each other and get lunch.
We love the shows we're on, and we're definitely passionate about acting, but at the end of the day, our work on stage together is what's really important. Had we been bigger at that age, it can be really freaky and possibly damaging.
AJ: I don't think we were [in the] mega stardom field, but I do know that our music had done well enough that Aly and I were recognized on a day-to-day basis, especially if we were together. I'm glad we didn't experience Taylor Swift-level fame because I don't know how that would work.
"Take Me" (and the four-song EP to come before a full album release in 2018) is a far cry from the old Aly & AJ, the girls say.
Despite her endless successes, (starring in a Disney show in her early teens, selling over a million records with her sister AJ and working on so many movies/tv shows that it would take this entire intro to list them) the girl has remained one of the most down to earth people I know. AM: My first acting job was the television show that I feel like people think me and AJ were both on together even though we weren’t and that was AM: It totally was.
Even the way you do your hair and makeup, you went from blonde to brunette. I don’t know anyone who dresses like you, and I mean that in a good way. I'm like, “why are you just wearing Gucci, Givenchy, Tom Ford glasses? I really like Reformation, too, which obviously doesn’t always have one-of-a-kind stuff, but I think their cuts are really cute and classic. But then I think at a certain point too it then becomes not as cool. Screw that person if they're going to think that about us".
