Louis-Philippe Gingras

Montréal based Louis-Philippe Gingras is first and foremost a musician. After studying jazz in university he returned to his native Abitibi and began writing lyrics – and that’s when the fun began. His latest, Troisième rangée, was released in November 2016, a departure from the country music he is most associated with. Gingras approaches each song as a world in and of itself: be it a sea shanty embellished with the lavish instrumentation of chamber music, or good ol’ driving rock with a solemn touch of brass. As a performer he is eccentric, eloquent, moving, witty, and often hilarious.
