Marc Broussard

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 Ted Broussard of "The Boogie Kings" nurtured his musical gifts at an early age, and the vibrant Lafayette, Louisiana music scene gave Broussard 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 and made his major-label debut with Carencro. The album featured the hit "Home," which gained large success on radio and catapulted him into the national spotlight. Over the next 10 years, Broussard released multiple albums with major labels, but has recently returned to his independent roots with several acclaimed original and cover albums via his SOS Foundation (Save our Soul).

Broussard's incomparable brand of soul — an infectious mix of rock, blues, R&B, funk-pop, and soul coupled with his powerful vocals — has garnered worldwide praise from critics and fans alike.

After multiple successful original and covers album releases, Broussard teamed up with Blues titan Joe Bonamassa to release S.O.S. 4: Blues For Your Soul, a Blues cover record benefitting Bonamassa's charitable foundation.

In 2024, Marc is celebrating 20 years since the release of his debut album Carencro with an Anniversary Tour. The album will be played front to back and also feature some of his fan-favorite covers songs from his S.O.S. series along the way!

A liminal space as described on reddit is the space between the time of “what was” and “what’s next”. It’s a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing.

Well, me... I’ve spent the last 3 years or so in a liminal space.

I have considered myself a musician since I started writing and recording songs at the age of twelve. I’ve had bands with many successes and I have made an honest living as a touring and session guitarist / bassist for some of the best rock-n-rollers around. I’m pretty sure I had what you’d call a good ride.

Then I stopped caring about music. Everything about writing songs and performing seemed frivolous when my wife became ill with breast cancer. The pursuit of art is an inherently selfish plight, and it just felt in bad taste... I am a father of two beautiful children and I try my damnedest to fan their flames in front of mine. It’s a struggle, I admit.

Of course we all endured a pandemic. Honestly, looking back, I am happy it gave me time off to spend with my family. I will always look back on the long days together (+ the afternoon cocktails, baby pools and backyard hangs) fondly. Thank god I had that time with my love and my children.

After my wife passed, I continued my post covid job at an hvac company in my hometown in south louisiana while raising my daughters. I was grateful to have work and to be able to provide for my family, but I knew in my heart that the place I was in was a transitional one...

Then music suddenly mattered again. It became important. I felt inspired to write songs about my truths of love and loss... About being in a liminal space... And eventually, about finding love again and moving forward. The writing was my therapy and I was thankful to have that old friend music back in my life.

With the help of my closest friends and family, I have been able to record these songs that have helped me persevere. I hope anyone who listens will join me in a celebration of hope, love & perseverance. I appreciate you.

Thanks for tuning in. I’m still a lucky man.
