Melting Vinyl are excited to announce that Colin Hay will be performing live at Brighton’s Komedia!
Although he’s one of Australia’s best-known exports, Colin Hay was born in Kilwinning, Scotland, and to this day remains hugely popular in the country and the rest of the UK. Colin Hay has released nine albums since founding own label Lazy Eye in 1992. Peaks & Valleys (1992), an outing for solo acoustic guitar and voice; Topanga (1994), a rock album that featured “Waiting for My Real Life to Begin;” Transcendental Highway (1988); the acoustic Going Somewhere (2001); Company of Strangers (2002); a collection of newly recorded Men at Work hits and some new songs called Man At Work (2003); Are You Lookin’ at Me? (2006); American Sunshine (2009) and the current Gathering Mercury.
Scottish-Australian Colin Hay is probably best known for his time with 1980’s legends ‘Men At Work’ – the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80’s with anthems like “Down Under,” “Overkill,” and “Who Can It Be?”
Since his appearances in the popular comedy ‘Scrubs’ we’ve been reminded not only of Hay’s sense of humor but also of his flawless song-writing craft.
Colin’s sound is described as a blend of easy listening acoustic rock with a tinge of pop, and since signing to Compass Records in 2003 Hay has rebuilt his name recognition. Playing at the intimate Komedia in Brighton, Colin Hay is sure to put on an outstanding show.
