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 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt “Johnny B. Goode” onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father’s band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.
Marc’s song “Home” was successful at 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 Marc’s vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Most recently, Marc released an independent Christmas Album titled, “Magnolias & Mistletoe”. The original song, “Almost Christmas” received radio play word wide. His philanthropic cred is strong too, through donating all proceeds from the sale of his Bootleg to Benefit the Victims of Hurricane Katrina, undertaking a month-long tour of U.S. military installations in September 2007, building homes with Habitat for Humanity and donating his service as spokesperson for Louisiana’s United Way of Acadiana – all of which contributed to Hard Rock International’s decision in 2007 to present Broussard with its “Love All, Serve All” Award in recognition of his multifaceted generosities. Marc’s next project is a charitable rhythm and blues covers record to be released summer 2016. He will be donating fifty percent of the proceeds to City of Refuge.
All of that, the spiritual as well as the musical, contributes to Broussard’s emergence as a more complex, seasoned yet emotionally vital artist. His depth in American musical tradition confirms that as a member of the Atlantic roster, he has come home to a place that can nurture his continued growth for years to come. The process began, in fact, a few years ago, when the late Ahmet Ertegun first heard a young Broussard perform with Solomon Burke during a tribute to Wilson Pickett at a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame dinner – and promptly offered him a spot at the upcoming Montreux Jazz Festival.
