Biography

Les Louanges is the project of Vincent Roberge, singer-songwriter of raw talent and established musical audacity. Originally from Lévis, Vincent Roberge hits hard with the release of his first album, La nuit est une panthère, which charmed critics upon its release in September 2018. The album continued to gain momentum in 2019 as it was celebrated with numerous awards and nominations, notably honored with a spot on the very selective Polaris Prize short list, a Félix-Leclerc and Rapsat-Lelièvre award, as well as a Juno for Francophone Album of the Year, and the coveted title of Révélation Radio-Canada. To top it all off, he went on to win 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 sidekick Félix Petit).

Announcing a shift towards a greater pop influence, while still remaining as ambitious and inventive, Les Louanges presented his sophomore album, Crash, on January 21st 2022 via Bonsound. This new effort represents the aftermath of the impact, the dizzying yet revealing imbalance experienced by its author following the frenzy of the last three years.

Press Quotes

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

Causette

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
