Enjoy this 2011 interview from Roger Hodgson, co-founder of Supertramp. Roger is the writer and composer of the band's greatest hits to include Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, It's Raining Again, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, School, Fool's Overture, Hide in Your Shell, and so many more.

The songs Roger Hodgson sings that are often referred to as "Supertramp songs" are songs that Roger wrote and composed alone - that is how he creates music. He will often hear the musical composition first, then the lyrics come. Sometimes he will hear the whole song complete inside himself before he puts it down on paper and records it. When he was with Supertramp, he would make a demo of the song and bring it to the band for them to learn their parts. So Supertramp as a band never wrote and composed together, there were only two songwriters for the band.

Roger is currently in the midst of his Breakfast in America Tour and selling out shows all over the globe. You don't want to miss the opportunity to see him performing these timeless songs plus material from his amazing solo albums.

Share with us your thoughts and experiences of Roger's shows and what his music means to you - Roger enjoys hearing from you! ~

"The feelings you emanate on stage are simply beautiful and full of love for your audience. Hence the driving force behind your success. Leep singing your beautiful songs...the world needs them...especially now."

"I have been wanting to see you perform since I was a pre-teen and finally had the chance and I was definitely not disappointed. Your voice and talent is stellar and so is your band, but more than the music I was impressed with how classy, humble and gracious you are as a person. How very refreshing, especially in this day and age of 'rock stars'. I loved every minute of it. Thank you"

"Brilliant concert.Every song just so well done. A concert where you could hear a pin drop between the quieter sections because every single person was totally transfixed on the beautiful sounds they were hearing. I will always remember this one and when my friend asks how was it i'll say just the best truly just the best."
