Cast back into the public eye by TV sitcom Scrubs, Colin Hay is an acoustic guitar-playing singer-songwriter. He was once the lead singer of band Men At Work, you may know them by their hit “Down Under.”
Colin moved on to solo work, and most tracks are just his voice and an acoustic. His lyrics tend to paint pictures in a very real and and honest way, and the music is warm and friendly. That, and the tunes are usually catchy and memorable.
Tracks to Try: the familiar “Down Under – Acoustic Version”, the bittersweet “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You”, and the liberating “Beautiful World.”
