After collaborating with the visual artist Pascal Grandmaison for his Autoportrait (sans lunettes) video, Philippe B invited another artist, Léna Mill-Reuillard, whose practice is based around photography research, to interpret his song Anywhere. The result falls midway between photography and video. Anywhere, which features vocals by Milk & Bone’s Laurence Lafond-Beaulne, is off Philippe B’s fifth album La grande nuit vidéo, released a little over a year ago.
Philippe B will perform his brand new show, Philippe B & The Alphabet, in Montreal on Thursday, November 8th at Club Soda, during the Coup de coeur francophone festival. The singer-songwriter will step onto the stage with a rock orchestra for this unique concert, which includes a rhythmic section, a brass section, guitars, keyboards and back vocalists. Philippe B will revisit his catalogue, backed by nine musicians, while keeping his favourite instrument, the guitar, front and center.
