Human Nature’s career is built on a bedrock of friendship. Few bands can boast the same line-up after more than two decades in the business. We were all friends before we became the group. There was no audition process. There was no thought of it being a business. When a decision is made, it’s done four ways.” explains Phil .
Since signing with Sony Music Australia in 1995, Human Nature have released nine albums – five of which went to No. 1 in Australia. They’ve achieved 23 platinum awards, 17 top 40 hits and five top 10 hits worldwide. In 2005, Human Nature released the five-time platinum album “Reach Out – The Motown Record,” a collection of Motown hits. It went on to become the highest-selling Australian album of 2006, according to ARIA, and it reached No. 1 on the US Billboard Heat Seekers chart.
This was followed up in 2006 with “Dancing In The Street – The Songs of Motown II.” The next year, Human Nature returned with “Get Ready” featuring such Motown superstars as Mary Wilson, Martha Reeves, The Temptations and Smokey Robinson. They’ve forged a particularly deep relationship with Smokey Robinson, a legend whose profile transcends the music community. With Smokey’s support, the group this year moved from the Imperial Palace to the Venetian Resorts and Casino with their brand new show, titled “Smokey Robinson presents Human Nature: The Motown Show.”
