Repertoire/Song List

 

Roger Hodgson’s trademark way of setting beautiful introspective lyrics to upbeat melodies resonated and found its way into the hearts and minds of people from cultures around the globe. He is the Voice you have been listening to on almost all the classic hit songs that were recorded by Supertramp, the Voice people all over the world love.

Roger began writing songs at the age of 12 and performed his first concert of original songs at the age of 13. He later recorded some of his songs with Supertramp and many of them have become the soundtrack of our lives. Although Roger and Supertramp’s other co-founder, Rick Davies, shared writing credit, they actually wrote and composed separately with each singing their own songs. Every song Roger performs in concert was written and composed by him.

Uniting four generations at his concerts, Roger transports baby boomers back to their youth and gives younger generations a taste of why his heartfelt songs have endured. Audiences are once again experiencing the magic and spirit that Roger Hodgson created with Supertramp.

“I love performing these songs which continue to resound for me as a performer and for the fans. My songs come from a very personal place inside me and they carry my beliefs and my dreams and my philosophy of life. I understand the deep connection that fans have with my songs that have been a part of so many peoples’ lives around the world.”
 

All the songs below that Roger recorded with Supertramp (**) were credited Hodgson/Davies, Roger and Rick actually wrote separately after the album Indelibly Stamped onward. In fact, many of Roger’s songs he wrote before he met Rick Davies and co-founded Supertramp in 1969.

Supertramp was hardly an overnight success. It wasn't until 1974, with Roger Hodgson’s composition, “Dreamer,” released on the band's "Crime of the Century" album, that Supertramp had a top selling single. It was two years later, with the Hodgson penned song, “Give A Little Bit” that the group had a top twenty United States hit. Out of the top ten Supertramp hits, eight were written and composed by Roger Hodgson.

Supertramp, the band, did not write the songs and does not own the songs. The name Supertramp is a brand name that has been trademarked by Rick Davies and his wife.

While Roger is credited on the songs Rick Davies wrote, they are not listed in Roger’s repertoire and he does not perform them in concert.

Journalist Reviews of Concerts:
 

“For most of my life, I've loudly and proudly identified myself as a Supertramp fan. All these years I thought I was a Supertramp fan only to discover that I am, in fact, first and foremost, a Roger Hodgson fan. The second Roger Hodgson opened his voice, I said ‘that’s Supertramp.’ He is Supertramp. His is the voice that spoke to me as a young man, and speaks to me even more powerfully all these years later. What a show! WOW is all I can say.”
David Wild, Contributing editor, Rolling Stone

 

“The name Roger Hodgson may not be familiar to some, but his voice will be. His songs have filled the airwaves for over three decades, with his former band Supertramp.  During the evening, Roger had spoken about the healing effect of music and of forgetting your troubles for an hour or two, and that is exactly what happened to the audience. For any difficult times in your life, you should be able to get a show like the one Roger Hodgson gave us – on prescription!”
Paul Ray ~ Fireworks Magazine

 

“If you were ever a fan of Supertramp then attending a Roger Hodgson concert these days is as good as it gets and it gets good.  As the principal songwriter of Supertramp and lead singer of the songs he wrote, Hodgson concerts sounds exactly like Supertramp, which is a good thing. The Roger Hodgson set list reads like a history of music.” ~ Undercover
