They have performed sell out shows around the globe since they signed with Sony Music Australia over two decades ago, a partnership that continues today. Since arriving in Las Vegas in 2009 to commence an unprecedented residency for an Australian act, the pop-vocal group has garnered international critical acclaim. The group, currently in residency at the prestigious The Venetian Resort Las Vegas with their critically acclaimed show HUMAN NATURE SINGS MOTOWN & MORE (through March 2022), recently celebrated 2,000 performances as Las Vegas resident headliners. The foursome launched their new PBS television special “HUMAN NATURE: JUKEBOX – IN CONCERT FROM THE VENETIAN” December 2017. JUKEBOX follows the highly successful “Smokey Robinson presents HUMAN NATURE: The Motown Show” which clocked up over 1200 performances over a six year period. JUKEBOX, the album, is a collection of ‘50s and ‘60s pop standards (together with an original song) produced by Dave Pierce & Executive Produced by Bob Rock. The group’s 12th album ‘Gimme Some Lovin’ JUKEBOX Vol II’ debut at the coveted #1 position on the national ARIA Albums Chart in Australia in July 2016 and spawned a national arena tour in February 2017 selling 40,000 tickets. In late 2018, their brand new 13th studio album Executive Produced by Steve Fitzmaurice (Sam Smith & Seal) was released and again hit the top of the ARIA Albums Charts with a new Australian arena tour ‘Little More Love – 30th Anniversary tour set for April/May 2019. Highlights in Human Nature’s career to date include performing to a global audience at Sydney 2000, opening for Michael Jackson and Celine Dion at concerts around the world and, appearing on television in the USA on shows including The Talk, The Chew, Oprah and Dancing With The Stars, as well as their own PBS Special: Human Nature Sings Motown.
To celebrate three decades as a group, Human Nature have released STILL TELLING EVERYBODY – 30 YEARS OF HITS – a retrospective collection of 28 immaculate musical statements including a reimagined version of their hit ‘Don’t Say Goodbye’ & new track ’This Old Heart Of Mine’ via their record label Sony Music Australia. In January 2019, Human Nature were awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for their service to the performing arts and entertainment field and Andrew recounts, “We attended a ceremony in Canberra and to witness my Mum and Dad getting teary seeing that their boys had done something the country was proud of was a really cool moment for me. I think people seem very proud of how we represent Australia – not just for the records we make, but also just as people that we are.” On 27th November, 2019, Human Nature were inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame and the group marvel that it was actually 30 years to the day from their first-ever concert to the day they were inducted into the Hall of Fame. Andrew remembers the group’s debut performance in Bankstown, NSW on 27th November, 1989 very clearly: “We were these four young guys who just got up and sang a doo-wop classic called ‘Earth Angel’ – we still perform that song sometimes, actually. We had sunglasses on and were kind of uncool, but people seemed to like it. It’s bizarre and totally coincidental that it just so happens to be that very same date 30 years later that we’re being inducted into the ARIA Hall Of Fame. I think we’re the first boy band to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame as well, which is kind of cool.”
Following a triumphant 2019, the unstoppable group kicked off 2020 with the release of a brand new original single, ‘Nobody Just Like You’, which became the #2 most added song on Aussie radio.
