As the singer, guitarist, and main songwriter of Australia’s Men At Work, COLIN HAY was responsible for penning several of the quirkiest pop hits of the early ’80s. Although forever associated with “the land down under”, HAY hailed from Scotland but relocated to Australia in 1967. After Men At Work’s rise, demise and a period of reflection, COLIN embarked on a solo career, debuting in 1987 with Looking For Jack (the title of which supposedly referred to a brief encounter HAY had with actor Jack Nicholson).

Hay continued to release critically acclaimed solo material with regularity throughout the 2000’s, including Wayfaring Sons, Peaks & Valleys, Topanga, 1998’s Transcendental Highway, 2007’s Are You Lookin’ at Me?, American Sunshine, 2011’s Gathering Mercury, which was followed in 2015 by Next Year People. In 2017 COLIN recorded and released his 13th solo album, Fierce Mercy, an epic, cinematic step forward from the singer-songwriter who has become increasingly known for his wonderfully witty and intimate performances as well as his ever-present great voice and incisive songwriting. The range of artists who have chosen to cite him as a muse is vast and varied and include the likes of Metallica and The Lumineers, reflecting his continuing relevance and broad appeal.
