This glorious song, Only Because of You, is from Roger's 1984 solo album, In the Eye of the Storm. The hauntingly exquisite lyrics and melody of this beauty touch the soul deeply. Seeing Roger perform is mesmerizing - audiences are once again experiencing the magic & spirit that Roger Hodgson created with Supertramp.
Roger, co-founder of Supertramp, is the singer/songwriter of everlasting hits to include Dreamer, Give a Little Bit, Breakfast in America, The Logical Song, Take the Long Way Home, Fool's Overture, It's Raining Again, Hide in Your Shell & many more. Roger is on tour worldwide, performing a variety of shows with band, with orchestra & solo. http://www.rogerhodgson.com https://www.facebook.com/RogerHodgson Although Roger & Supertramp's other co-founder shared writing credit, they actually wrote & composed separately with each singing their own respective songs. http://bit.ly/1Kfgu0W
"Hodgson connected deeply with the fans in a way few stars of his stature do." San Diego Reader

"Mr. Hodgson is purely excellent and in touch with his soul. His skill poetically, rhythmically,with his piano,acoustic guitar or his hauntingly sublimely ranging voice is just at the apex of beautiful human expressionism."
"I've had the pleasure to see a bunch of your shows, both solos and with your band, and it has always been a memorable moment. I have to say that your shows definitely stand in a warm place in my mind and heart. Always a pleasure seeing an artist enjoying his audience this much."
"Your songs epitomise my childhood, if anyone asks me what my childhood memories are, I would sum it up in one word 'Supertramp'. I'm now a mother of four children who are all roughly around the same age as I was when I was listening to your songs and sometimes I play Breakfast in America & it makes me quite tearful."
"After all these years, your music means more to me than ever before. You have no idea how much listening and watching you perform have helped me over the years. I just wanted to thank you for sharing your talent and exposing your soul to help people like me in need of some solace in this cruel world. Times like tonight, you are a reminder that your beautiful music can bring peace to my soul once again..and for that I want to thank you for helping me thru some of the most difficult times of my life."
