Human Nature have earned their place as one of the world’s finest pop vocal groups of the modern era. Since arriving into the lives of the great Australian public back in 1996, they’ve become known around the globe for their distinctive harmonies and stellar live shows, riding waves to the top of the charts, and have won fans all over the planet. 

The foursome – Toby Allen, Phil Burton, and brothers Andrew and Michael Tierney – recently celebrated their 27th anniversary. That kind of staying power, combined with their incredible vocal talent, has seen them headline sold-out shows around Australia, as well as building a formidable reputation as a genuine Las Vegas headline attraction.

Their statistics are staggering. Since signing to Sony Music Australia over two decades ago, Human Nature have sold more than 2.5 million albums, earned 27 platinum awards, scored 17 Top 40 hits and have had five Top Ten tracks worldwide. Among the hits you’ll hear such classics as ‘Wishes’, ‘Don’t Say Goodbye’, ‘Don’t Cry’, ‘Eternal Flame’, ‘He Don’t Love You’, ‘When You Say You Love Me’ and their collaboration with John Farnham ‘Every Time You Cry’.

Human Nature’s albums to date include TELLING EVERYBODY (1996), COUNTING DOWN (1998), HUMAN NATURE (2000), WALK THE TIGHTROPE (2004), REACH OUT: THE MOTOWN RECORD(2005), DANCING IN THE STREET: THE SONGS OF MOTOWN II (2006), GET READY (2007), A SYMPHONY OF HITS (2008), VEGAS: SONGS FROM SIN CITY (2010), THE CHRISTMAS ALBUM(2013) JUKEBOX (2014) and the latest addition to the canon, GIMME SOME LOVIN’: JUKEBOX VOL II(2016)

In 2009 Human Nature took Las Vegas by storm with an unprecedented residency – a coup for an Australian act. Word spread quickly regarding the boys’ prowess and their “Motown Show” clocked up over 1300 performances during a six year period, earning plaudits from not only fans but from the great Motown icon and presenter of their debut Las Vegas residency show, Smokey Robinson. Human Nature “The Motown Show” was lauded by Trip Advisor as the #1 show not to be missed in Las Vegas during its incredible six year run.

In 2016, Human Nature re-signed to the prestigious Venetian Resort Hotel & Casino for a three-year residency at the famed Sands Showroom for a new show they’ve called “Jukebox”. The Jukebox concept takes its name from the Australian double platinum selling album of the same name which is due for release in North America in 2016. On March 23, 2017 Human Nature reached the impressive milestone of performing their 1500th show on the famed entertainment strip.

The original JUKEBOX album was a collection of ‘50s and ‘60s pop standards (together with an original song) produced by Dave Pierce & Executive Produced by Bob Rock. JUKEBOX closed 2014 as the No. 3 best–selling Australian album of the year with double platinum sales and a #2 ARIA chart position.

In 2016 Human Nature released the highly anticipated sequel, GIMME SOME LOVIN’: JUKEBOX VOL II. Again, the band worked with Pierce and Rock. Like its predecessor, the new album features interpretations by the boys of songs made famous from the late 50’s to mid 1960’s ‘golden age’. The songs were originally either penned or performed by the likes of The Beach Boys, The Beatles, The Righteous Brothers, Fontella Bass and more. Again, the group has included a new ‘modern classic’ on the album, an original tune, written by Andrew, ‘Forgive Me Now’.

One of the world’s first ‘Boy Bands’, Human Nature’s biography is in their set list for their current Jukebox show. “Some Americans that come to see our show have never heard of Human Nature before,” explains Mike. “We have to tell our story of how we got together when we were kids in high school, and what motivated us to stay together and why we’re who we are. We tell that through the music and use the ‘jukebox’ as our way to move through the music that’s inspired us.”

The Jukebox show is a playlist of not only the group’s influences, but the greatest vocal hits of all time. Jukebox sees the guys perform such classics as ‘Under The Boardwalk’, ‘Stand By Me’ and ‘Unchained Melody’. If you’re at a gig, expect to hear the likes of ‘I Want It That Way’ (The Backstreet Boys) through to the aforementioned Beatles’ hit, ‘I Saw Her Standing There’. Human Nature’s Jukebox also explodes with the Motown hits Human Nature famously reinterpreted during their acclaimed Las Vegas Motown Show. A night at the Jukebox is liable to include anything from ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ and ‘Dancing In The Street’, to the soul of ‘Gimme Some Lovin’’ (which kick starts GIMME SOME LOVIN’: JUKEBOX VOL. II) or Sly and the Family Stone’s ‘Dance To The Music’. It’s a journey that carries through to ‘All About That Bass’ and Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’.
