Kevin Parent Brief Biography

Kevin Parent (born 12 December 1972) is a bilingual Qubcois singer-songwriter. Although his first language is English, he was born in Greenfield Park, Quebec (now a borough of the city of Longueuil), and was raised and educated in the French-speaking area of Bay of Chaleur (Gasp Peninsula) in the municipality of Nouvelle during his childhood and attended high school at the cole Antoine-Bernard in Carleton-sur-Mer and now lives in the nearby town of Miguasha.

Discovered in 1993 when he participated in a songwriting competition, Kevin Parent signed to Tacca Musique shortly thereafter. His first album, "Pigeon d'argile" sold over 360,000 copies, making it one of the greatest Qubcois successes of the decade. With hits like "Nomade sedentaire", "Seigneur" and "Boomerang", Kevin quickly became one of the biggest names in Quebec music in the 1990s, earning the respect of peers and critics alike, along with numerous Felix Awards in the province and tour dates on both sides of the Atlantic. Two years later, Kevin released "Grand Parleur, Petit Faiseur", which also sold more than 350,000 copies and earned Kevin the Felix Award for Rock Album of the Year in 1998. His follow up albums, Les Vents ont chang (2001) and Retrouvailles (2003), which featured collaborations with Claire Pelletier, Catherine Durand, among others, both achieved multi-platinum status and earned him numerous Juno Award nominations (including a win for the best selling Francophone album of 2002) and Felix Awards.
