2023 ALBUM FRANCOPHONE DE L’ANNÉE | Les Louanges | | The JUNO Awards

Les Louanges is the project of Vincent Roberge, singer-songwriter of raw talent and established musical audacity. Originally from Lévis, Vincent Roberge hit 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 a Rapsat-Lelièvre award, a Juno for Francophone Album of the Year, as well as 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 long-time collaborator 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 three previous years.
