Richard Hewson aka The RAH Band

Hewson founded The RAH Band – of which he was the sole member and which took its name from his initials – in 1977 – to release an instrumental called “The Crunch”. The piece climbed to number 6 in the UK Singles Chart.[4] Hewson played all the musical instruments himself. The arrangement involved the use of no synthesisers, only conventional guitar and keyboards with pedal effects. A number of jazz funk releases followed. The second big hit single for the RAH Band was in 1985, when the soul balladClouds Across the Moon“, also reached number 6 in the UK chart.[4] Vocals were provided by his wife Liz.[2]

In July 2007, Hewson released a remixedClouds Across the Moon ’07“, now featuring vocalist Emma Charles.[5]

The RAH band’s releases were issued under a variety of record labels, including Good Earth Records, DJM, KR Records, TMT Records and RCA.[4]
