Les Louanges is the project of Vincent Roberge, singer-songwriter of raw talent and established musical audacity. The Lévis-born artist Vincent hit hard with the release of his first album, La nuit est une panthère, which charmed critics upon its release in September 2018. The opus continued to gain momentum in 2019 as it received numerous honors, including a spot on the very select Polaris Prize Short List, the Juno for Francophone Album of the Year, and the coveted title of Révélation Radio-Canada. To top it all off, he won three trophies at the ADISQ Gala: Album of the Year - Alternative, Album of the Year -Critics' Choice and Arrangements of the Year (an award shared with his long-time collaborator Félix Petit).

Released on January 21st, 2022 via Bonsound, Crash, his second album, announces a shift towards a resolutely more pop sound for Les Louanges, but in a musical quest that is as ambitious and inventive as ever. This album embodies the dizzying and eye-opening instability that its author experienced following the release of his first opus. Crash not only earned him a spot on the Polaris Prize Long List, but also nominations at the ADISQ Gala in the categories of Songwriter or Composer of the Year, Album of the Year - Alternative and Album of the Year - Critics' Choice, as well as a win in the category of Arrangements of the Year alongside Félix Petit.

Press Quotes

Avec Crash, Les Louanges brise le cadre de la chanson en mille morceaux pour lui donner un nouvel éclat.


Through no fault of his own, there’s been a tidal wave of vaguely yachty, jazzy sonic dilettantes bubbling to the surface in this province, but those beachcombers lack the pure writing chops and long-form vision demonstrated here. 8.5/10

Erik Lejion, Cult MTL

Instead of milking a tried and true formula and emulating past successes, Les Louanges drives off-course and ultimately takes listeners on a wild ride. 8/10

Antoine-Samuel Mauffette Alavo, Exclaim!

(…) ses pièces persisteront lorsque la planète pop passera à une nouvelle tendance. 4.5/5

André Péloquin, Journal de Montréal

(…) album-concept inclassable.

Juliette Poulain, Les Inrocks

[…] un travail de concision où la qualité de conception et le potentiel fédérateur atteignent l’équilibre des meilleurs albums pop de création.

Alain Brunet, PANM360
