b. 15 December 1956, Cobham, Surrey, England. Formerly a member of the Marshall Hain band with former partner Julian Marshall. Following the huge success of their 1979 single ‘Dancing In The City’, Marshall found the pressure too much and left the team. Hain’s first release after the band was predictably dropped by their record company was ‘The Joke’s On You’, for Harvest Records. She then signed to Decca Records and subsequently Mercury Records for several singles and albums. Hain moved to the USA in 1985 and forged a successful career as a songwriter. Her portfolio includes ‘Fires Of Eden’ (Cher), ‘Back To Avalon’ (Heart), ‘Rip In Heaven’ and ‘Crash And Burn’ (’Til Tuesday), ‘Further From Fantasy’ (Annie Haslam), ‘Remind My Heart’ and ‘Every Time We Fall’ (Miss Saigon’s Lea Salonga). Her songs have also been recorded by Roger Daltrey, Kiki Dee, Barbara Dickson, Nicki Gregoroff, Cheryl Beattie and Kim Criswell.
