Roger Hodgson, formerly of Supertramp, has one of the most distinct and recognizable voices in rock music, heard on such classics as “Take the Long Way Home,” “Breakfast in America,” “Goodbye Stranger,” “The Logical Song, and “Give a Little Bit.”
Roger Hodgson is recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters and lyricists of our time! As the legendary voice, writer and arranger of most of Supertramp’s greatest hits that led to more than 60 million record sales, he gave us amazingly enduring songs like: “Give a Little Bit,” “Dreamer,” “It's Raining Again,” “Take the Long Way Home,” “The Logical Song,” “Breakfast In America,” “Fool’s Overture” and so many others that have become the sound track of our lives.
Hodgson co-founded the progressive rock band Supertramp in 1969 and was with them for 14 years. He wrote and sang most of the classic hits that brought Supertramp worldwide acclaim. Roger recently received 2 awards from ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) for his songs being in the top played songs in their repertory, proving that they have indeed stood the test of time.
“The highest compliment that Roger can be paid is that he probably sounds better live today than in the recording studio more than a generation ago.”
- Evening Standard – London, Review from The Royal Albert Hall Concert.
“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.”
