Hain, Kit (15th December 1956-Present)

She is a singer-songwriter and guitarist born in Cobham, England, whose mother was an opera singer.

She studied at the Dartington Hall School and later became a psychology student at Durham University.  While at University she began singing and writing songs and progressed from folk music to jazz.  She became a member of an amateur jazz-rock band while she was employed as an infant teacher.

Eventually moving to London she met up with Julian Marshall, who she had known while at Dartington Hall School, and together they teamed up to become the duo Marshall, Hain, while she was earning money by singing in pubs.  After seeing success with the chart hit “Dancing in the City” they would release a further single and their first album but they did not reach the same heights and they broke up in 1980.

She decided to concentrate on song writing and moved to New York in 1981 where she would occasionally perform at CBGBs.  Her songs have been recorded by artists such as Roger Daltry, Kiki Dee, Barbara Dickson, Chaka Khan, Peter Cetera, Selena and Cher, have appeared on TV series such as Sex in the City, Baywatch and The Young and the Restless and in the movies Eye See You and It’s My Party.

She has appeared as lead vocalist on the albums Contessa’s Party and Sprawl and in her solo career she has released three albums including School For Spies and Spirits Walking Out.
