Marc Broussard has a unique gift for 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 twenty. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt out “Johnny B. Goode” onstage at age five while sitting in with his father’s band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.
Broussard’s song “Home” was successful on the radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been used in many television shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of his voice lends itself well to film and television and will probably continue to do so for years to come.
Last year, Broussard released a follow-up to his S.O.S.: Save Our Soul album. It is another soul covers album appropriately titled S.O.S. 2: Save Our Soul—Soul on a Mission. He will be donating 50 percent of the profits to City of Refuge, an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization committed to helping individuals break the cycle of poverty in their lives.
