Naturally 7 came into being in 1999 in their home city of New York. Seeking to revolutionize the a cappella music genre, the seven vocalists not only created beautiful harmonies, but broke new ground by creating the rhythm tracks (including guitar, drum, bass, and horn sounds) with their voices alone. Calling their new approach to instrument-free music "vocal play," the band wowed audiences all over the States, leaving concert-goers in disbelief. Witnessing their hard-hitting live performances and hearing the band's full-bodied sound on their independently released debut, Non-Fiction, caused record execs and fans alike to consistently ask one question, which ultimately became their major-label debut record's title. What Is It? was released in 2003, featuring the single "Music Is the Key" with Sarah Connor. The song became a significant hit throughout Europe, which quickly became the group's home base. Naturally 7's members (Garfield Buckley, Rod Eldridge, Warren Thomas, Jamal Reed, N'glish, Dwight Stewart, and Armand Hutton) first toured all over Germany, later taking the stage in neighboring nations like Austria, Switzerland, France, and Hungary, to name a few. Record sales continued to rise as their fan base grew. Their third original release, Ready II Fly, was met with almost instant success, appearing on R&B charts all over the continent. Naturally 7 maintain a strong presence on European charts while shifting significant attention to the U.S. market in hopes of enjoying similar success on their native soil. ~ Evan C.
