All Music Guide:
A bilingual singer/songwriter from Quebec, Kevin Parent spent the majority of his career as a Francophone artist. His first four albums, Pigeon d'Argile (1995), Grand Parleur, Petit Faiseur (1998), Les Vents Ont Changé (2001), and Retrouvailles (2003) were all successful, garnering sales, critical acclaim, and numerous industry awards, including a Juno Award for Best Selling Francophone Album of 2002. Discovered in 1993 through a songwriting competition, Parent's career got off to a quick start, selling more that 300,000 copies of his debut. In 2007, Parent decided to revisit his mother tongue, English, for his next full-length, Fangless Wolf Facing Winter. An album with a rather large list of collaborators, Fangless Wolf Facing Winter wound up being a Top Ten hit on the Canadian Billboard Album chart.
