Rupert Neville Hine (born 1947 in London) is an English musician, songwriter and record producer, having produced albums for artists including Kevin Ayers, Tina Turner, Howard Jones, Saga, The Fixx, Bob Geldof, Thompson Twins, Stevie Nicks, Chris de Burgh, Suzanne Vega, Rush, Underworld, Duncan Sheik, Formula and Eleanor McEvoy. In addition, Hine has recorded eleven albums, including ones billed under his own name, the pseudo-band name Thinkman, and with the group Quantum Jump.

In the early sixties, Hine formed half of the folk duo Rupert & David. The duo performed in pubs and clubs and occasionally shared the stage with a then-unknown Paul Simon. The duo’s one released single (on the Decca label in 1965) was a cover of Simon’s „The Sounds of Silence“. The single was not a success, but was notable for featuring a young Jimmy Page on guitar and Herbie Flowers on bass.

Hine released two albums under his own name in the early 70s: Pick Up a Bone (1971) and Unfinished Picture (1973).

In 1973, Hine, along with guitarist Mark Warner, bassist John G. Perry (then of Caravan) and drummer Trevor Morais (formerly of The Peddlers) formed the band Quantum Jump, releasing two albums, Quantum Jump (1976) and Barracuda (1977). After a re-release of the track „Lone Ranger“ (from Quantum Jump) became an unexpected UK Top Ten hit in 1979, a third album – Mixing, a reworking of tracks selected from the first two Quantum Jump albums – was released.

    Rupert Hine, Steve Lillywhite, and Trevor Horn pretty much defined the 80's sound.

    Rupert is one of my alltime-favourites. My father raised me with "Immunity", "Waving not drowning", "Wildest wish to fly" and "The Formula" (Thinkman). The painting music and the deep lyrics will always mean a lot to me. Rupert is aware of this, since I told him the story once by e-mail. :)
