“His voice stands above all others in the field. Quite simply, Marc Broussard is the reason they invented soul music.” – PerformerMag.com
Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of channeling the spirits of classic R&B, rock and soul into contemporary terms. His father, Louisiana hall of fame guitarist, of “The Boogie Kings” nurtured Marc’s musical gifts at an early age, and the vibrant Lafayette, Louisiana music scene gave Marc the opportunity to practice his craft consistently from childhood through early adulthood.
After releasing a successful independent EP at age 20, Marc signed a record deal with Island Records. 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. Marc released multiple albums with major labels over the next 10 years, but has recently returned to his independent roots. Being an independent artist, allows Marc to release more content and truly tap into his creative spirit.
