DOWNLOAD: Bio and Fact Sheet

  • In 1969, Roger Hodgson co-founded Supertramp, one of the greatest progressive rock n roll bands ever. He was the voice, heart and soul of the band for 14 years and is regarded as the spiritual and creative force behind Supertramp.


  • Roger’s Breakfast in America Tour has taken him and his band from North America to South America to Europe and back, performing to four generations of fans. His solo touring since 2002 has also included concerts in the UK, Australia, Iceland, New Zealand, Middle East, and the North of Africa.



  • Although Roger shared writer’s credit with Rick Davies, they wrote and composed separately.  They continued to share writer’s credits much like Lennon and McCartney did.  Roger sings all the songs he wrote and Rick sings the songs he wrote.


  • During the time that Hodgson led the band, Supertramp sold over 60 million albums. Breakfast in America had sales of well over 20 million copies and in 1979 was the top selling album worldwide.


  • In Canada alone, sales for Crime of the Century and Breakfast in America reached Diamond status.  One in every 15 Canadians owned both these albums.  


  • Dreamer, recorded for Crime of the Century was Roger's first hit song recorded with Supertramp.


  • Hodgson left the band in 1983 in order to spend more time with his family and raise his small children.  He moved his family away from the Los Angeles music scene and built a home and studio in the mountains of northern California, where he not only nurtured his family but his spiritual life as well. 


  • Roger’s songs are still played on the radio around the world, and his unforgettable voice, trademark lyrics, innovative keyboard sounds, masterful 12 string guitar and piano skills, and repertoire of non-stop hits continue to touch the hearts of three generations.


  • Hodgson has a very deep spirituality that he expresses through his music, touching hearts and stirring precious memories.  Many people comment that they feel he is singing just to them.  He has always had a very deep spiritual yearning that has underscored so many of his songs and is his compass for the way he lives life.  Fans and promoters alike love his humbleness and generosity.  Roger truly tries to live his life by the message of the song that he wrote – Give a Little Bit - giving a little bit of his love to the world, whether it is journalists in an interview or the audience or fans in a meet and greet.

  • Many people are unaware that Roger was Supertramp’s chief architect and visionary when it came to arranging and producing the albums and designing the stage shows.  All his gifts continue to shine through - in every concert he takes people on a musical journey that is both powerfully moving and intimate.


  • Fans have come together from all over the world through the love of Roger’s music. One of the things which touches him the most is the lasting relationships that have developed and grown into an International Community.



  •  Hodgson has released an extensive catalog of music including a series of internationally successful solo albums and his debut DVD “Take the Long Way Home - Live in Montreal” (2006 Universal Music Canada, 2007 Eagle Rock worldwide) which went to #1 and multi Platinum in Canada, Gold in France and Germany.   He has the support of two labels - Universal Music and Eagle Vision.

  • Hodgson’s first solo album, In the Eye of the Storm, sold over 2 million copies. Roger not only wrote, arranged, sang and produced all the material on the album, but played almost all the instruments as well.

  • Hodgson’s second solo album, Hai Hai, was released in 1987 and re-released in 2005 by popular demand.  He had a life changing accident the week that he released Hai Hai, shattering both his wrists.  He was told by all the doctors that he would never play music again. Yet through his faith and hard work he proved them wrong and came back stronger than ever.

  •  Hodgson’s album, Open the Door, was released in 2000 in Europe and was #1 in Switzerland for three weeks.

  • His latest release, Classics Live, is a spectacular collection of live performances from his duo, band and orchestra shows around the world recorded on his 2010 world tour.

  • Hodgson has over 60 unpublished songs and plans to record some of them when the time is right.


  • In May 2005 Hodgson was honored by ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers) in recognition of his song Give A Little Bit being one of the most played songs in the ASCAP repertoire.  In 2007, he received the same honor from ASCAP, for his song Breakfast in America.

  • The Logical Song was named best song musically and lyrically at England’s prestigious Ivor Novello Awards in 1980.  It also has the distinction of becoming one of the most quoted lyrics in schools.

  • Take the Long Way Home was chosen as the #5 favorite song in MOJO Magazine’s readers’ poll in 2006.

  • Give a Little Bit was number one in the AC ratings in the US for six weeks in 2004 and has become an anthem for many charities worldwide, especially after the Tsunami, Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy.

  • In May 2012, Roger was honored by France with a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters.  This prestigious decoration was established in 1957 by the French Minister of Culture to recognize significant contributions to the arts.
