Video Premiere: Colin Hay’s ‘A Thousand Million Reasons’

Katie Kukwa

October 25th, 2017


The past year will be long-remembered as the year we said goodbye to such legendary artists as David Bowie, Prince, Lemmy Kilmister (Motorhead), and John Wetton (Asia, King Crimson)—just to name a few.

But 2016 was another high point on the comeback trail for Colin Hay, whose first brush with fame came over thirty-five years ago in the reggae / rock bgroup Men at Work (“Down Under,” “Who Can It Be Now?” “Overkill”).

Hay fell off radar after his Australian pop band dissolved, but he reinvented himself as a one-man acoustic act whose solid songwriting, husky vocals, and fluid guitar finesse wowed smaller crowds in and around his adopted L.A. home. A string of modestly successful independent releases laid the groundwork for Hay’s post-millennial rebirth, which began with memorable cameos on the doctor sitcom Scrubs, an ebullient entry on the acclaimed Garden State soundtrack, and the re-make / retrospective CD Man at Work.
