As the legendary voice, writer and arranger of most of Supertramps greatest hits, 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, Fools Overture and so many others that have become the sound track of our lives.
Roger was also very instrumental in the creative process of producing all of his albums including the Supertramp albums he was involved in. From conceiving the journey of the album as a whole to choosing the songs and their order, to fine tuning the sound on each track, Roger spent weeks and months in the studio bringing each album to its highest form.
Supertramp as a band never wrote and composed together, there were only 2 songwriters for the band. The songs Roger sings lead vocals on are the ones he composed the music and lyrics for, and the songs Rick sings lead vocals on are the ones that he wrote.
Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters, lyricist of our times. His trademark way of setting beautiful introspective lyrics to upbeat melodies resonated and found its way into the hearts and minds of cultures around the world. Many who have attended his concerts say he sounds better today than with Supertramp.
Roger is currently on tour. Not only does he perform "unplugged" shows, he also performs with a full band and with symphony orchestra. Tour details can be found at:http://www.RogerHodgson.com
