Scottish-Australian Colin Hay is probably best known for his time with Men at Work – the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80’s with anthems like “Down Under,” “Overkill,” and “Who Can It Be?”. We have most recently been reminded of Hay’s outstanding talent from his many appearances in US comedy series ‘Scrubs’ – which became (and still is) a staple of evening television here in the UK and throughout the globe.
Although he’s one of Australia’s best-known exports, Colin Hay was born in Kilwinning, Scotland, and to this day remains hugely popular in the country and the rest of the UK.
He has released ten albums since founding own label Lazy Eye in 1992.
Since 2003, Hay has rebuilt his name recognition. “I went from playing for 50 people a few years ago, to 500 and 1,000 seat venues. I’d like to speed it up a bit, cause I’m running out of life,” Hay quips in fine Scottish style, “but for the most part I’m happy to be on the road and still making music, and attracting ever increasing audiences.”
Hay and his music, most notably an acoustic version of the Men at Work hit “Overkill”, as well as more recent works such as “Waiting for My Real Life to Begin” and “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get over You”, has been featured on TV shows including Dawson’s Creek, Judging Amy, and Scrubs – converting a new generation of devout fans around the world.
His song “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You” was included on the soundtrack of the Zach Braff film Garden State. Hay also appeared in an episode of the celebrated Larry Sanders Show. In Hay’s mind, a career highlight.
His new album is due out in the Spring 2017 in the UK and Europe.
