Biography


Singer-songwriter and guitarist Philippe B has crafted his own musical universe, a folk hybrid in which samples and acoustic and electric frequencies are cleverly mixed together. Philippe B is a pillar of author's music in Quebec. Philippe B, "B" for Bergeron, is from Abitibi-Témiscamingue, Quebec. He was a guitarist for Pierre Lapointe and in 2009, they co-wrote four songs on Pierre Lapointe's album: Sentiments Humains. Philippe B has written and composed for a large number of artists and projects.

Critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Philippe B makes timeless French classic pop tunes. With poetry at once earthy and celestial, he describes characters, places, and moments in time, capturing them in song form. He has 5 albums at the moment: Philippe B (2005), Taxidermie (2008), Variations fantômes (2011), Ornithologie, la nuit (2014) et La grande nuit vidéo (2017).

Following the release of his third album, Variations fantômes (2011), he, along with the

Molinari Quartet and a chamber orchestra, performed sold-out shows at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, Club Soda and Église St-Jean-Baptiste. Between these concerts and the composition of his fourth studio album, Ornithologie, la nuit, released in April 2014,

Philippe B put his multiple talents to good use by producing albums for Groenland, Isabelle

Boulay, Les soeurs Boulay and Carl-Éric Hudon. In addition to recently lending a hand to

Pierre Lapointe on the song Les Callas, he also wrote the original soundtrack for Éric

Morin’s latest film: Chasse au Godard d’Abbittibbi.

On his own or as a guitarist for others, Philippe has for the past few years been a regular on Quebec stages, notably at the Francofolies de Montréal and the Festival de Musique Emergente in Abitibi-Témiscamingue. In 2006, he was also named "Sacré Talent" by Radio-Canada. This multi-talented artist, he has not ceased to seduce critics and fans alike and is now part of the Quebec music scene alongside the great ones.
