Most artists who have experienced the levels of success and adulation COLIN HAY has would be content to sit back and earn a living walking to the mailbox and back. Yet Hay is restless, eager to move forward and continually hone his craft while continuing to challenge himself. Hay's solo shows intersperse classic and new songs with hilarious, poignant, and downright surreal stories drawn from his often unbelievable experiences over the past three decades. «I've been doing these solo tours for a number of years,» he explains, «going back to the same places and building audiences by doing the best shows I can.» Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance.
Colin Hay may be best known as the lead singer for Men At Work, the platinum selling Australian band that topped worldwide charts in the 80s with anthems like “Down Under,” “Overkill,” and “Who Can It Be Now?” Hay’s justifiably proud of his place in pop history, but since moving to Los Angeles in 1989, he’s made 12 solo albums.
Ruston Kelly has amassed an impressive catalog of cuts including tracks for Kenny Chesney, Josh Abbott Band, and Tim McGraw’s track “Nashville Without You.” The Nashville songwriter has a personal sound which embodies indie, folk and rock. A captivating performer, his knack for storytelling along with his melodic vocal control seems to leave audiences in awe. He’s shared this gift on tour with artists including Robert Earl Keen, The Oh Hellos, and The Lumineers, and at festivals such as Bonnaroo and Wakarusa.
