Colin Hay

Colin Hay is a Scottish-Australian musician, who made his mark during the 1980s as lead vocalist of the Australian band Men at Work, and later as a solo artist. Regarding his solo career, Hay stated, in 2011: “I feel like it’s been building for the last fifteen, or so, years that I’ve been touring. It’s slow and steady. It’s been word-of-mouth. People see the show, like it, and tell their friends. It feels very organic.” Hay’s music has been frequently used by actor and director Zach Braff in his work, subsequently leading to a career rebirth in the mid-2000s. Commenting on his younger fanbase, Hay noted, “Most of them have an idea about Men at Work, but that’s the subplot. They picked up on me since Scrubs, they’re young enough they never heard of Men at Work. But I’ve found if people discover you they discover everything about you.”
