Naturally 7 takes its act to Australia (Updated 6/12/2014)
Many believe that the talent and showmanship of Naturally 7 must be seen to be believed.
Australian fans should know, because they just had several chances to see these guys in the flesh.
The R&B/Urban/Soul sound of this group was on full display at Naturally 7 rolled through Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne as part of the Hidden in Plain Sight Tour. They played the Enmore Theatre, QPAC Concert Hall and the Melbourne Recital Hall over the last week of May 2014, showcasing some amazing melodies and harmonies with their ever-popular beatboxing, mimicking the sounds of drums, guitar, horns, strings and more using nothing but their voices.
If you haven't seen a Naturally 7 performance live, here's something to prepare for: a diverse, eclectic mix of interpretations of pop classics. They cover everything from The Beatles and Queen to Coldplay. They've also collaborated with the likes of Herbie Hancock, Quincy Jones and rap star Ludacris, just to name a few.
Naturally 7 made quite a splash in 2013 with a 32-concert European Arena tour, sharing a stage with Mick Hucknall and The Jacksons. This came after spending part of 2012 playing with Chris Martin and Coldplay. And of course they also recently opened for Michael Buble, including a 10-show performance in London's O2 Arena.
There's one date to keep on your calendar for the end of summer if you're a fan of the group. They'll play Hull's Freedom Festival 2014 between September 5 and 7, and will be just one of 200 acts from the worlds of music, dance, theater, comedy, poetry and storytelling to take part in the event.

As the group Naturally 7, their coming out party came all the way back in the fall of 2007. From early success in Europe to a shining spotlight on the global stage, the acappella style called "Vocal Play" has made them a household name on the R&B scene.
It really started back in 2008, when Naturally 7 made their U.S. television debut on "The Ellen Degeneres Show" and later joined Michael Buble for a guest spot on "The Today Show." Next was a performance on "The Tonight Show" with Jay Leno, a stop at the famed Madison Square Garden in New York City and a spot on the renowned "Royal Variety Television Show" in London. The outcome of that event was a special album, "Wall of Sound," released exclusively for the UK and Ireland to commemorate the group's participation.
Touring has been the name of the game for Naturally 7, and their live shows have drawn rave reviews. In many cases, fans and critics alike have been wowed by the 'illusion' where the group performed songs with trumpets, bass cello, harmonica, drums, electric guitars, and more – using only their voices. In 2012, they ran through Europe, South America, South Africa, Australia, Canada and the U.S. The group then closed out the year as special guests on Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto Tour.
Naturally 7 will return as openers for Buble's 10-show performance at London's O2 Arena in June 2013.
