Colin Hay is a Scottish Australian musician and actor 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.
