Hubert Kah

Hubert Kah is a German synthpop band, led by Hubert Kemmler. He was part of the so-called “Neue Deutsche Welle” (new German wave, a trend where in the 1980s German-language songs suddenly became very popular in Germany) with the “Trio Hubert KaH” (Hubert Kemmler: vocals, keyboards, Markus Löhr: guitar, keyboards, Klaus Hirschburger: bass and sometimes Niko Kimmerle: drums). They had success in 1982 with the songs “Rosemarie”, “Sternenhimmel” and “Einmal nur mit Erika (…dieser Welt entflieh’n)”.

As of 1984, the band began working with Michael Cretu who co-arranged and co-produced three albums for them. After a German album Goldene Zeiten (1984), the band recorded the English-language albums Tensongs (1986) and Sound of My Heart (1989), which were partly successful internationally. Together with Michael Cretu, Kemmler wrote and produced songs for other artists, including “Dancing into Danger” by Inker & Hamilton, “Liebe Auf Den Ersten Blick” by the band Münchener Freiheit and a number of tracks by Sandra such as “Maria Magdalena”, “Heaven Can Wait”. Hubert Kemmler also contributed backing vocals to most of Sandra’s hit singles between 1985 and 1989.
