About Marc Broussard
Marc Broussard is an American singer-songwriter. His style is best described as "Bayou Soul", a mix of funk, blues, R&B, rock and pop, matched with distinct Southern roots. He has released eight studio albums, one live album, three EPs, and has charted twice on Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks.
Marc Broussard is the son of Ted Broussard, an acclaimed Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist and former member of The Boogie Kings. Marc was raised in Carencro, Louisiana and Lafayette, Louisiana.
In 2001 Broussard was part of Y, a Christian band based out of New Iberia, Louisiana.
Broussard's solo career started with the release of several independent efforts, including 2002's Momentary Setback which spawned "The Wanderer", a song about self-discovery. A re-worked version of the song appears on his first major album Carencro , released on August 3, 2004. The album's title pays tribute to the musician's hometown of Carencro, Louisiana, where he still resides. It featured the two singles "Where You Are" and "Home".
In 2007, he released S.O.S.: Save Our Soul, an album consisting almost entirely of cover songs. The album was his first to reach the top 100 of the Billboard 200 in the US, debuting and peaking at No. 96: this had the effect of "graduating" him from the Top Heatseekers chart, which consists of albums by artists who have never reached the top 100.
Broussard finished recording the Must Be The Water EP on the Rock Boat VII in January 2008 and released it later that year. He was no stranger to the Rock Boat, an annual oceanliner cruise and music festival. This was Broussard's first release with his new label, Atlantic Records, with which he signed a multi-album contract in 2007.
