A Louisiana soul singer and guitarist with a killer swamp pop pedigree, Marc Broussard has created a sound that borrows liberally from blues, rock, pop, gospel and R&B to form an infectious hybrid of deep Southern roots music.

“A blue eyed soul singer with a broad, soulful voice nicely scraped around the edges.”- New York Times

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. He still lives in Louisiana today.

After releasing a successful independent EP at age 20, Marc signed a record deal with Island Records. Marc’s song “Home” was successful on 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. Marc released an album for charity on September 30, 2016. It is a soul covers album appropriately titled “Save Our Soul 2”. He donated 50% of the profits to City of Refuge. The live performance video of the acoustic version of “Cry to Me” from the album has garnered over five million views on YouTube.

Marc’s latest original release, Easy to Love was released on September 15, 2017. The lead single off the album, “Don’t Be Afraid to Call Me,” was featured on Rolling Stone Country. Marc continues to tour in support of the album to sold-out crowds around the US.

Marc is currently working on his third charitable covers record for which he has partnered with Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge.
