Aly and AJ Bio

Do you watch Hellcats? Have you ever heard of 78violet? If yes, then you probably know the bubbly and blonde Aly and AJ. Find out more about these sisters in their Kidzworld bio.


Alyson and Amanda Michalka, better known as Aly and AJ, are sisters from Torrance, California. The girls are musicians, actresses and Disney stars, who work collaboratively and individually.


78violet

In 2004, Alyson and Amanda Michalka signed with Disney-owned Hollywood Records under the band name Aly and AJ. Their first album, Into the Rush, came out in 2005 and debuted at number 36 in the United States. The CD has sold over one million copies. Their second album, Insomniatic, came out in 2007 and featured their popular single “Potential Breakup Song.”


In 2009 Aly & AJ replaced the Jonas Brothers as the opening act for the Hannah Montana tour. Later that year, the sisters decided to change the name of their band to 78violet and started to create a harder, rockier sound compared to their early pop tunes. In addition to their band duties, both girls have also pursued careers in acting.


Alyson Michalka

Aly, the older sister, worked with Disney for many years, first landing the role of Keely Teslow on Phil of the Future and then starring in several movies like Now You See It and Cow Belles. She has been playing the piano since she was five years old and the guitar since she was 13. In 2010, Alyson got a big break and was cast opposite Ashley Tisdale as a lead on the newly announced CW show Hellcats. Alyson plays the character of Marti Perkins, a law student who loses her scholarship and has to join the cheerleading squad to pay tuition.


Amanda Michalka

Like her sister, Amanda discovered her musical talent at a young age, playing the piano by the time she was four. Amanda also plays various other instruments including guitar and bongos. She starred alongside Alyson in the Disney movie Cow Belles. Amanda and Alyson also appeared in Super Sweet 16: The Movie for MTV. In 2009, Amanda landed the role of Clarissa in the movie The Lovely Bones. She also recorded the theme song for the recently released film Secretariat.
