Roger Hodgson has been recognized as one of the most gifted composers, songwriters and lyricists of our time. The songs Roger sings that are often referred to as Supertramp songs are songs that Roger wrote and composed alone - that is how he creates music. Even though Roger and Rick shared writing credit, they each wrote and composed separately. Roger wrote many of the band's hits while he was still in his teens, before he even met Rick. When Roger was with Supertramp, he would make a demo of the song and bring it to the band for them to learn their parts. Supertramp as a band never wrote and composed together. There were only two 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. http://bit.ly/1OEUPPe

Shares about Roger's concerts:
"It's amazing to see a performer whose songs touch the depth of your soul. I was also amazed by the kindness and friendliness that emanates from you on the stage towards your audience. Brilliant!"

"Roger has a very unique way of communicating with the public through his music. It was like the evening was a privilege for both him and us in the audience...Like he was grateful for us to be there, and we felt lucky to share these moments with an incomparable artist."

"His voice is still in great shape, and I'd even say that his performance has gotten even better with the years. Always smiling, he looks like he's gotten to a point in his life where he's enjoying and living the moment."
