Colin Hay

Colin Hay first came to international fame with seminal '80s hitmakers Men At Work selling more than 30 million records worldwide on the strength of #1 songs like ‘Who Can It Be Now?’ and ‘Down Under’. Over the course of his remarkable solo career, Hay developed a reputation as a gifted raconteur with serious comedy chops and has recorded over a dozen critically-acclaimed studio albums helping establish him as one of his generation's most hardworking and reliable craftsmen. Rolling Stone praised his ‘witty, hooky pop’ tunes, while NPR's World Café lauded his ‘distinctive voice’.

Joe Henry

Joe Henry

In a career spanning more than 25 years, Joe Henry has left an indelible and unique imprint on American popular music. As a songwriter and artist, Henry is celebrated for his exploration of the human experience. A hyper-literate storyteller, by turns dark, devastating, and hopeful, he draws an author's eye for the overlooked detail across a broad swath of American musical styles - rock, jazz and blues - rendering genre modifiers useless.
