Roy Hay Career
Roy Hay fell in love with music from an early age and began to practice to play the piano from the age of 5.
He cites the likes of Stevie Wonder, The Isley Brothers, and Led Zeppelin as some of his biggest musical influences.
Roy rose to prominence after joining the musical band Culture Club back in the early ’80s and later replacing one of the band’s founding member Johnny Suede in 1981.
As regards the “Culture Club” episode the VH-1 series Behind the Music, Hay assisted Boy George in giving up heroin.
After his removal from the group, the singer suffered the painful withdrawal symptoms closely attended by Hay in his Essex home.
However, after much time with the band, Hay proceeded to form another band known as This Way Up, and they released three singles in 1987 titled: “Tell Me Why”, “If I Can’t Have You” and “Louise”.
This was followed by an album titled ‘Feeling Good About It’ released in some European countries and in Japan in 1987.
Also, of all the songs released by Hay’s new band, only one single, “Tell Me Why” made it to the UK Singles Chart and only lasted for a week at number 72 spot.
In 1989, Hay decided to make a move to Los Angeles, the U.S where he wrote for and produced young artists and bands for Sony Music.
Thereafter, he dived into commercial composing and sound design with his own company Haywired Music.
Hay later found success in Hollywood, California as a composer. He worked with fellow composer Hans Zimmer to compose the music for a series directed by Robert Altman, as well as the music for Cracker and for Stephen King’s The Dead Zone.
In 1998, he was reunited with the three original members of the band Culture Club and together, they recorded a new album released the same year.
When interviewed by Rolling Stone, Hay described his time apart from Culture Club as a healing process stating that;
‘There was obviously a bit of a healing process that needed to happen between Jon [Moss] and George. They hadn’t really spoken to each other in quite a while’.
Hay would go on to describe the tour as; “Older and wiser…We’ve all been through some good and bad times since the band. I think we’ve all grown up a bit”.
