Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp in 1969 and was with them until his departure in 1983. During the 14 years that he was with the band, he wrote, sang, and arranged most of the enduring rock standards that made Supertramp a worldwide phenomenon. In 2016 Roger continues to perform his timeless classics – “Give a Little Bit,” “The Logical Song,” “Dreamer,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast in America,” “School,” “Fool’s Overture,” and “It’s Raining Again”. The standards that helped the band sell well over 60 million albums. While many may not recognize the name Roger Hodgson, everyone recognizes his signature voice – one of the most distinctive voices in rock history.
Although Roger shared writer’s credit with Rick Davies, they wrote and composed separately. They continued to share writer’s credits much like Lennon and McCartney did. Roger sings all the songs he wrote and Rick sings the songs he wrote.
During the time that Hodgson led the band, Supertramp sold over 60 million albums. Breakfast in America had sales of well over 20 million copies and in 1979 was the top selling album worldwide.
“All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan when actually I was and am a Roger Hodgson fan. What a show! ‘WOW’ is all I can say.” ~ David Wild, Rolling Stone
“There are few vocalists instantly recognizable from the first few bars of a song but Roger Hodgson is certainly one of that unique group. The singer/songwriter of Supertramp, his voice is as unmistakable as the distinct keyboard sound of his early hits.” ~ The Times (London)
