“John Legend的歌曲‘All of Me’的成功，取决于他和钢琴，”Naturally 7代表者Roger Thomas说， “人们想听到的是歌曲真谛和其演唱者的声音。重点在于让人们听到它。当人们每天都吃快餐，在某个时候，他们会说，'我需要一些不同的东西。’ 而我们就是那些不同的东西。”
约800万人已经联署签名Thomas的想法。让这句话广为流传：在世界三次巡回演唱会上与Michael Bublé的现场表演在欧洲，英国，加拿大，澳大利亚，亚洲和美国引起轰动。Naturally 7惊人的简历还包括为天团酷玩乐队开场， Sarah Connor在德国排名第一的单曲“Music Is the Key”，2006年在澳大利亚排行前15名的专辑的Ready II Fly和超过2千万次在YouTube上的点击率。
他们还与通用磨坊公司在蜂蜜坚果麦片的两个广告中合作。于2014年十一月先用15秒顺口溜再现经典的 “Honey of an O”。第二个广告在NBC的今日秀上首播并包括了 Hidden In Plain Sight中的单曲 “Keep The Customer Satisfied”。
然而正如Thomas所承认的，“很多人仍然不知道我们在做什么。”所以现在的R&B，灵魂乐和流行乐团队正带其美国的专辑重新登场，恰当地命名为“Hidden in Plain Sight”（Hidden Beach Experiences，二月十号）。副标题Vox Maximus 专辑1，一个包括14首赏心悦目的歌单。
该团队从Mahalia Jackson’s的福音经典“Trouble of the World”中寻找灵感和那美丽又赤裸的“Mahalia。”为了达到音乐的政变，Naturally 7借用了Queen的“Bohemian Rhapsody”和“Galileo”结合。Thomas说,“我们是世界第一许可采样摇滚乐队，我们很荣幸能够做到这一点。”
Naturally 7的音乐魅力来自于Thomas所说的“混杂”：以某知名歌曲的精髓，并把自己的旋律和歌词赋予其之上。Wham的感染之作“Everything She Wants”为“Life Goes On”提供了动力，而Art of Noise的“Moments In Love”使得模仿的所有歌曲的乐器并演唱了自己的歌曲的混杂而成的“Moments（I’ve Been Loved）”。其中八首原创音乐包括“Keep the Customer Satisfied” 和“Rhapsody of the Queen。”
Thomas把专辑Hidden In Plain Sight比作在厨房里尝试各种配料的厨师。“他使用人们品尝过的食物，但他决定把两种或三种东西混在一起。对于Hidden专辑来说，我们开始建设一个歌剧又古典的氛围，再把它包装进了一个现代城市的背景里。”
“我们希望把团体模式带回来，”Thomas说。 “长久以来，再也没有出现过像O’Jays, Four Tops, Jodeci和 Boyz II Men的组合。我们要担起这个责任。”
Naturally 7在2007年成名，一炮而红：该团队在巴黎地铁列车上演唱Phil Collins的“In the Air Tonight”的视频在YouTube上引起轰动。经过Bublé邀请其作为国际巡演的合作伙伴， Naturally 7最近还参加了花花公子的爵士音乐节，在伦敦的皇家阿尔伯特音乐厅表演，在BET Honors的Herbie Hancock进行表演，在瑞士蒙特勒Quincy Jones的75岁生日派对上演唱。
现在Naturally 7带着它们的最近专辑Hidden In Plain Sight和大家见面。 “大多数无伴奏合唱团只专注于清唱部分,” Thomas说。“这很好, 但我们尽力确保它们都是好歌。永远流行的歌。”
