Colin Hay - Waiting For My Real Life - TRAILER from TriCoast Studios on Vimeo.

Colin Hay had it all. His voice was on every radio in the world as he sang about the land down under with 80s rock band Men At Work. The group quickly became victims of their own successes and faded from view. But a singer sings, and Colin kept the music going outside of the public eye as he started back from the bottom. 

Now, with sold out shows and a word-of-mouth reputation for offering one of the finest evenings a music fan could ask for, Colin finds himself at the top of his powers with his 13th solo release, Fierce Mercy, considered the finest album of his solo career.  Available from Compass Records starting March 3rd, 2017, Fierce Mercy explores themes of love and loss, mortality, and even the odd UFO sighting, but always with the singular perspective and insightful wit that define Hay’s work.

Colin Hay - Waiting For My Real Life is Colin’s inspiring story and journey from dizzying heights to staggering lows to finding salvation through song. The film follows the unexpectedly swift rise to superstardom of Men At Work, to the band’s equally surprising demise, to Colin’s long, slow climb back to relevance and resonance. Ultimately, commitment to his craft and the development of a truly one-of-a-kind stage show set Colin on the path that leads to a deeply satisfying solo career - one that is still ascending. Colin Hay - Waiting For My Real Life weaves its story around intimate footage from Colin’s successful 2013 world tour and features interviews with close family and friends as well as celebrity admirers Hugh Jackman, Mick Fleetwood, Zach Braff, Sia Furler and many others. Now, with sold out shows, critically acclaimed solo albums and a word-of-mouth reputation for offering one of the finest evenings a music fan could ask for, Colin finds himself at the top of his powers and simply waiting for his real life to begin. 

COLIN HAY - Waiting For My Life is written and directed by Nate Gowtham and Aaron Faulls. After building a successful audio career in television and film post-production (Lemmy, The Damned: Don’t You Wish That We Were Dead, Rolling Stone, NBC, CBS, ABC), Gowtham sought to combine his deep love of music and documentary film into transformative storytelling. Aaron Faulls’ award-winning documentary feature, Still On Her Keel, followed the adventures of three treasure-hunting shipwreck divers. His latest documentary, Taking A Bullet, detailed the making of LITTLE BIRDS, a film featuring Kate Bosworth and Leslie Mann. Faulis also wrote and directed the first season of the travel show “Into The Drink” for HDNet and NatGeoTV, garnering several people’s-choice nominations in the media. Producer Elizabeth Boettcher James has worked on projects ranging from EPKs and music videos to music-centric films such as Respect Yourself: The Stax Records Story(PBS) ,Troubadours: The Rise of The Singer- Songwriter, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival, James Taylor & Carole King: Live at the Troubadour (certified Gold Record by the RIAA), and Paul Simon: Live in New York City. 

Please note that The Franklin Theatre does not show previews. The feature film will start at the listed showtime.
