Philippe B is one of our most brilliant singer-songwriters. His precious and vibrant folk songs have been resonating on our music scene for over 15 years. The Abitibi-born singer-songwriter established the foundations of his repertoire on his first two albums, Philippe B (2005) and Taxidermie (2008), and then further honed in on his style on his third opus, Variations fantômes, in 2011. Enriched by the work of famous classical music composers, which he sampled with finesse and ingenuity, his sound grew in density with an orchestral backdrop that is both complex and refined.

Philippe B offered the logical continuation of Variations fantômes with Ornithologie, la nuit, a fourth album released in 2014, and then with La grande nuit vidéo three years later. All three releases were warmly welcomed by critics and the public, accumulating honors. In May 2023, he unveiled his sixth album, Nouvelle administration. On this first new record in six years written, arranged, mixed and produced by Philippe B, he evokes with modesty and sensitivity the events that have transformed his life lately, notably becoming a father and leaving Montreal.

Press Quotes

Nouvelle administration est un album qu’on déguste en prenant son temps, en savourant chaque phrase, en apprivoisant chaque mélodie

Josée Lapointe, La Presse

La force de Nouvelle administration réside dans sa poésie en apparence simple, mais qui atteint la cible à tout coup

Le Canal Auditif

L’auteur-compositeur-interprète revient avec tout ce qu’on a toujours aimé de lui : une autofiction malléable dans laquelle on finit par se voir quelque part soi-même.

Élise Jetté, Paroles & Musique

Beaucoup de talent chez Philippe B, il nous l’avait prouvé avec La grande nuit vidéo en 2017, et il le refait encore une fois avec Nouvelle administration

Xavier Bourassa, Bonjour la Côte
