Rupert Neville Hine (born 1948 in London, UK) is an English musician and record producer, whose work has included performing on The Power Station album.

Biography Edit

Rupert has worked on albums by The Power Station, Kevin Ayers, Tina Turner, Howard Jones, Saga, The Fixx, Bob Geldof, Thompson Twins, Stevie Nicks, Chris de Burgh, Suzanne Vega, Rush, Underworld, Duncan Sheik, and Eleanor McEvoy amongst many others. He has produced over 100 albums in total, many featuring songs he has written for and with the artists in question.

In addition, Hine has recorded eleven albums as an artist himself. Hine was founder of the 1970s band Quantum Jump, who had a UK top 10 hit with "The Lone Ranger" in 1979. As a solo artist, his best known song is "Misplaced Love", released in 1981 with guest vocals by Marianne Faithfull, which was a minor hit around the world - though most successful in Australia, where it peaked at #22. The German electronic artist Bob Humid claims to be greatly influenced by Hine's highly developed production skills, where audio-edits were to a large extent meaningful and creative. In the mid-late 1980s, Hine also recorded under the name Thinkman, which he conceived as a "virtual band".

Hine also had a brief relationship with Stevie Nicks, whilst the pair were working on her 1989 album The Other Side of the Mirror. The relationship ended rather abruptly and the details of which were never made clear, but they are alluded to in her song Rooms on Fire and in the liner notes of her greatest hits album, Timespace - The Best of Stevie Nicks.

Since September 2003, Rupert Hine has been working on a new music company venture with his long-time friend and lyricist, David MacIver Robinson, and is currently in talks with several artists, both established and new. He is notably producing the next album of the french female singer Nolwenn Leroy, scheduled for release in September 2009.
