Beginning his career as lead singer for '80s group Men At Work, Colin Hay gave the world outside of Melbourne a taste of his quirky songwriting chops and spunky stage presence. But after the novelty wore off, Hay had trouble with substance abuse and launching his own solo material. Gradually, he built an audience playing shows at the Largo in Los Angeles and from there earned the love and adulation of fans worldwide. Despite the many shakeups in his life and career, Hay has managed to reinvent himself as a singer-songwriter who deftly weaves song, storytelling, quips and sheer charisma into his performances. Far outpacing his '80s contemporaries, every single one of Hay's performances promises something unique and unpredictable, two qualities that have kept this musician-poet's reputation as a true original.
