Colin Hay

Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance.

As frontman, principal songwriter, and lead vocalist of pop sensation Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Overkill,” “Who Can It Be Now?”), the past ten years have found him quietly re-introducing himself to new generations of fans. The frequent use of his music on soundtracks - including the hit television show Scrubs (on which he has also had several cameos) and the sleeper-hit soundtrack to the film Garden State - has proven the timeless appeal of his songs. Combine that with tireless touring and an ongoing successful partnership with Nashville-based indie Compass Records, and Hay is poised to enter a new phase in his already storied career.

Colin's new album "American Sunshine", following the acclaimed solo album "Are You Lookin At Me?", was recorded in Nashville mid 2009 and highlights Colin's haunting, clear vocals and skillful guitar playing.
