Roger Hodgson, former lead singer and songwriter for Supertramp, wrote and sang most of the classic hits that brought Supertramp worldwide acclaim. Although Roger shared writer's credit with Rick Davies, they wrote and composed separately with each singing their own respective songs, much like Lennon/McCartney. Roger received two 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.

Many people are unaware that Roger was Supertramp's chief architect and visionary when it came to arranging and producing the albums and designing the stage shows. All his gifts continue to shine through - in every concert he takes people on a musical journey that is both powerfully moving and intimate.

Roger performs around the world in a variety of formats from unplugged to band and orchestra. He is currently on tour and shows are selling out.

Take the long way home est une excellente chanson qui traverse le temps sans prendre une ride.
Roger Hodgson démarre souvent ses concerts avec ce titre, et j'ai la chair de poule à chaque fois.
Ses concerts forment des moments inoubliables. J'en ai déjà vu 5 et il se renouvèle toujours, ajoutant des titres encore jamais interprétés, échangeant avec son public avec beaucoup d'humour, de générosité et d'humilité.

This is one of my all time favorite videos that I've seen on the internet for one of Roger's solo performances. He is so delightful in this. The way he receives the crowds ovation. It made me cry to hear him say I love you back to the audience. Such a beautiful exchange between an extraordinary artist and his fans. So humble in his greatness. A rare thing in the crazy music business that is full of giant egos and greedy companies trying to take advantage of the public. I read his press release and I am so glad that Roger is standing for artistic integrity and cares about the people who buy his records and pay for tickets to his shows. That is a man with a heart and a phenomenal voice and talent to go with it.
