Human Nature’s Toby Allen On The Magic Of Motown Music

Human Nature on stage

Toby Allen of Human Nature spoke with the Detroit Free Press about the Australian group’s success recording and performing Motown music.

“With the Motown music, even when you don’t think there’s many parts to it, there really is,” Allen explained. “And that’s the magic of that music – everything doesn’t have to be in your face. With a lot of those songs, there are a lot of really subtle background vocals that make it what it is, but you wouldn’t be aware of it. They’re all fun to sing.”
