Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock, and soul into contemporary terms. This gift has been a matter of common knowledge since 2002, when Broussard released his debut album, Momentary Setback, which he recorded and released independently at age twenty. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt “Johnny B. Goode” onstage at age five while sitting in with his father’s band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.
Broussard’s song “Home” was successful on the radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of his vocals lends well to film and television and will continue to do so for years to come.
On September 30, 2016, Broussard released a soul-covers album for charity, which is appropriately titled Save Our Soul 2. He donated 50 percent of the profits to the Atlanta-based nonprofit City of Refuge. The live performance video of the acoustic version of “Cry to Me” from the album has garnered over 2.7 million views on YouTube.
Broussard’s latest original release, Easy to Love, came out on September 15, 2017. The lead single off the album, “Don’t Be Afraid to Call Me,” was featured on Rolling Stone (Country) and is getting significant airplay on Sirius XM: The Highway. Broussard continues to tour in support of the album to sold-out crowds around the United States.
The music Marc Broussard has been making over the last decade is equal parts toe-tapping reverie, studio innovation and soulful crooning.
