Montréal-born artist Robert Charlebois divided his formative years between theatre and music. He first made his mark as a chansonnier in the mid-1960s. In 1967, after an eye-opening trip to California, he went electric and became Québec's prime rock'n'roller. The following year, Charlebois appeared in the groundbreaking and controversial show L'Osstidcho. In 1970, he took part in the Festival Express tour, alongside Janis Joplin and The Band. He went on to record a string of hits and collaborated with Québec legends Félix Leclerc and Gilles Vigneault. During the 1980s, a much calmer Charlebois continued to top the charts with material reflecting a more mature side. Next, he turned his attention to the beer industry and invested in a brewing operation. At the turn of the millennium, Charlebois came back to the music and released Doux sauvage in 2001. Tout est bien came out in 2010.
