Rupert’s career spans more than 30 years and 120 albums, including 11 of his own as both writer and singer, and was asked to write the Foreword for Billboard’s 'The Encyclopedia Of Record Producers'.
His own entry states: "Few producers have worked with as wide a stylistic range of platinum-selling artists as Hine including Tina Turner, The Fixx, Howard Jones, Chris de Burgh, Rush, Bob Geldof, Stevie Nicks, Thomson Twins, The Waterboys, Kate Bush, Suzanne Vega, Teitur and Duncan Sheik.”
Rupert’s unique musical and artistic diversity has made him an authority on musical creativity and his forthcoming symposiums and workshops examine the totality of communication through song.
At all2gethernow, he speaks about his upcoming book dealing with the art of songwriting. The ability of being a songwriter and shaping an overwhelming and brilliant song from a good one - this ability might help a songwriter to become an excelllent producer.
And it's even more than that. Being a great songwriter is about what you tell and how you do it. It's about authenticity.
But, in 2010 - is there room for a perfect song? For the perfect song? What is music's value in 2010 anyway?
