CANADA: Antoine L Collins-Nature Boy: The Music of Nat King Cole(2018)

Nature Boy not only celebrates the incredible works of Nat King Cole but pushes the bounds of originality by daringly modernizing them, while preserving their essence of emotional punch that his songs delivered.
Creatively, the songs on this project have been turned upside down and inside out, to truly make them my own reflections of the endless varieties of events that shape our lives. I've held nothing back in reinterpreting each song, however, painful, and in pushing my own personal boundaries in striving to reveal their inner meaning to the listener. By leveraging the talents of the team, we've created a recording that is audacious yet approachable, startling yet familiar. So, sit back, enjoy and let this record take you on a musical journey exploring some intimate insights on life.
