She formed the Marshall Hain band with former partner Julian Marshall, and their 1978 single "Dancing in the City" reached No. 3 in the UK Singles Chart. However, the band split when Julian Marshall found the pressure too much. Kit 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 United States 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).
Hain continued pursuing a recording career after Marshall Hain broke up and released two albums in the UK: 1981's Spirits Walking Out, which included a minor hit "Danny", and 1983's School For Spies.
