Biography

Thierry Larose creates music of a composite nature that is influenced by the independent culture of the turn of the millennium. He weaves literary references into his moving, tempered songs while probing our relationship to fiction. Fuelled by soaring rock crescendos, the music also has a pop sensibility that’s at once touching, punchy and exuberant. After releasing a double single, La vie ne vaut d’être vêtue / Cache-cou, Larose released his first album Cantalou in 2021 with Bravo Musique. This was followed by nominations for the 2021 Polaris Prize, the Félix-Leclerc award as well as Revelation of the Year and Best Rock Album at the ADISQ gala. Cantalou was also included in Exclaim!’s list of 50 Best Albums and was #3 on CISM’s French-language Top 50, to name only a few dazzling feats. A sequel is already in the works. It will be a celebration of everything that drives us and brings us together. A nod to the youth who want to experience emotions that are as new as they are necessary and appropriate – otherwise, what’s the point?

Thierry Larose comes from Marieville, a hamlet in the Montérégie region, where he was influenced by the independent culture of the turn of the millennium. These seeds overlap on his personal Venn diagram, leading him to create music of a composite nature. He weaves literary references into his moving, tempered songs while probing our relationship to fiction. Fuelled by soaring rock crescendos, the music also has a pop sensibility that’s at once touching, punchy and exuberant. In short, it’s a nod to the youth who want to experience emotions that are as new as they are necessary and appropriate – otherwise, what’s the point?

In 2019, Thierry Larose decided to devote himself entirely to music. He quickly released a double single, La vie ne vaut d’être vêtue / Cache-cou, which showcased his penchant for energetic intensity and attracted the attention of his future label. The following year, he unveiled the singles Les amants de Pompéi and L’île à 25 sous. Then, in early 2021, Cantalou, the title track from his first album, was finally released on March 12. This long gestation period, which lasted over a year, helped set up what proved to be a meteoric rise (through which Thierry remained humble and grateful because he is a good person). It started out with launches at Le National in Montreal and L’Impérial in Quebec City, followed by a spot on the long list of the 2021 Polaris prize (no small feat for a first French-language album) as well as nominations for the Félix-Leclerc award and Revelation of the Year and Best Rock Album at the ADISQ gala. Larose also won the SOCAN Songwriting Prize for Les amants de Pompéi, and several other highlights rounded out an exceptional year: Cantalou was included among the 50 Best Albums by the Canadian alternative media outlet Exclaim! (which, again, is rare for a French-language album) and found itself on several year-end lists in Quebec cultural media. The man has a lot on his plate! In early 2022, he reached over 1.5M+ plays on Spotify, took part in the Aquanaute 2022 tribute compilation, and filled Club Soda with fans eager to share some special moments together, which brought the album cycle to a close.

Yes, the first album cycle is already over, since the last year has flown by, and the next album is already in the works. Through it all, Larose has followed the same tenet, which is that despite everything that came before, you can create something new. It will be a celebration of everything that drives us and brings us together, scheduled for 2023, with the first single Des nœuds dans les doigts coming in May 2022. A double single, "Baleine et moi" and "Portrait d'une Marianne", was released in November 2022. We will have to wait until 2023 to discover the second album of the talented Larose.
