Soundspike Q & A: Roger Hodgson

Soundspike, Nov 5, 2012, John Voket
"It's funny today, because it's rare that people sit down for 40 minutes and listen to a whole album. But they do at stage shows, so in the show now I'm always trying to craft the best listening experience for the environment I'm walking into. If I walk into a theater, I may play one kind of show. And if I'm walking into a festival, it will be another kind of set. I look to see if people are standing or sitting -- really trying to tune into what is going to give them the richest experience for that two hours I am entertaining them."

Ink.com, Nov 4, 2012, Jim Sullivan

"Above and beyond the music there's something that happens for people. There's a very strong emotional journey and a celebration feeling.

Roger Hodgson's songwriting secret: 'I wrote them when I was alone'
The Star-Ledger, Oct 26, 2012, Mark Voger

"It never ceases to amaze me, really, what different songs have meant to people. I hear everything from 'They saved my life during my teen years' to 'We fell in love to the songs.' Or they used the songs at their weddings. The thing that amazes me is the depth of connection people have with these songs."

Montgomery Media, Oct 26, 2012, Paul Lucas

"I was fortunate enough to see Hodgson when he played the Borgata in August. The songs really do sound fabulous. But there was something more. There is an inner light that comes through Hodgson, both when he plays and when he interacts with the audience. It at once speaks of tranquility and a gentle kindness."

"Hodgson's stage presence is unlike anything I have seen before. He has a gentle demeanor, which stands in stark contrast to the fans that were dancing feverishly and singing along with every word of the Supertramp classics. There were times when the crowd became so loud they drowned out Hodgson as he was trying to introduce the next song."

One Track Mind: Roger Hodgson on "Give a Little Bit," "The Logical Song," others
Something Else! Reviews, Mar 8, 2012,
Nick DeRiso

"I think the wonderful thing about “Give A Little Bit” is how it’s stood the test of time. ..In my shows, I usually play that as the final song — and after two hours of warming the audience up, and opening them up, it’s like the cream on the top of the cake. I start playing that song, and everyone just smiles from ear to ear and starts hugging each other and singing with me. It’s a very unifying song."

"I love playing music for people. They seem to be getting much more from the shows than just listening to the songs. When we played Europe, we had fans flying over and attending 14 or 15 concerts. People said the experience gave them such enjoyment and inspiration. They were going home with a smile on their face. That feeling of love is infectious to me. I feel like the most blessed man on the planet."
