Naturally 7, May 13, 2016. 7.30pm
After three world tours with Michael Bublé., Naturally 7 is coming to SING! on May 13 at Jane Mallett Theatre.
This seven-man crew has perfected an intriguing a cappella style they’ve branded as “Vocal Play”—singing as instruments. Naturally 7 not only sings but also creates every backing instrument heard on its songs. We’re talking drums, bass, guitars, horns, flutes … even down to turntables. Stepping beyond R&B and pop, Naturally 7 taps into various genres from traditional gospel and rock to 17th century baroque. With nightly standing ovations in Europe, the U.K. Canada, Australia, Asia and the U.S., shows include an opening stint with hitmakers Coldplay, a No. 1 single in Germany with Sarah Connor, “Music Is the Key,” a top 15 album in Australia, 2006’s Ready II Fly, and 20+ million aggregated spins on YouTube! Get ready for a thrill ride!
