Themes of redemption and renewal come naturally to Colin Hay, as he is in the midst of a remarkable renaissance. While his voice and visage are still familiar to millions from his tenure as front man, principal songwriter, and lead vocalist of pop sensations Men at Work ("Down Under, ""Overkill," "Who Can It Be Now?"), the past twenty years have found him quietly yet tenaciously re-introducing himself to new generations of fans. It has been an organic process, building momentum through constant touring, and film and television exposure.
FINDING MY DANCE is Hay's expression for connecting with one's authentic self. In the process, he takes the audience on a musical journey, sometimes straight down the main road, and sometimes taking the twists and turns of the road less traveled. Whether or not you have seen him before, you will laugh, you may shed a tear, but you will most certainly be more than entertained.
"An aboriginal man once came backstage after a show and said to me in a kindly voice, "Where's your dance? I used to like your dance, you've lost your dance, mate, you've gotta find your dance." So, I set out in search of it, looking here, there and everywhere in all corners of the globe. Quite soon I realized that "finding my dance" is an inner search, and that whilst I may never truly find it, it matters not. What's important is to keep searching, and in the process, refine and simplify the steps." -Colin Hay
Hay is at the absolute peak of his craft. As a writer and vocalist, he has never been more masterful.
"Hay is funnier than most stand-up comedians, so he'll split your sides and then drop a heartbreaking ditty on you." The Houston Chronicle
"Hay is a consummate songwriter, who's only gotten better and better with age." Daytrotter, Illnois
