Supertramp About

Supertramp are an English rock band formed in 1969 (assuming this name in 1970). Their style oscillates between progressive rock and a more mainstream pop rock. The band’s work is marked by the songwriting of founders Rick Davies and Roger Hodgson and the prominent use of Wurlitzer electric piano and saxophone.

Garnering tremendous success in the latter half of the ‘70s, Supertramp created several very popular and recognisable hit singles, beginning with School and Dreamer off their 1974 commercial breakthrough, Crime Of The Century. 1977’s Even In The Quietest Moments… saw two more Hodgson-penned highlights in Give A Little Bit and Fool’s Overture, before the band and its leading duo reached their peak with the band’s top-selling record, 1979’s Breakfast In America. This album alone includes no less than 6 popular tracks: four of Hodgson’s (The Logical Song, Take The Long Way Home, Child Of Vision and the title track) and the two most well-known of Davies’ creations, Gone Hollywood and Goodbye Stranger.

The next album would be the last including Roger Hodgson, after which Richard Davies helmed the band alone into the ‘80s and the rise of digital synthesizers.

While Supertramp still exists, the latest album by the band was released in 2002.
