Biography

Some of the greatest albums release with a fanfare of news angles. One might hit the market with a tantalizing personal backstory. Another might signify some kind of career-changing milestone.

But not Marc Broussard, appropriately this unique artist’s first self-titled album. The story here is simple yet eloquent: It’s great music, pulled from the heart, crafted impeccably ... Read more in Amazon's Marc Broussard Store

Product Description

About the Artist

Sometimes you just have to keep a good thing going. If you’re five years old and on stage with your father, singing Johnny B Goode and following every key shift, then why stop? Why not record an album with him when you grow up? Marc Broussard did it, and I’ll be damned if it didn’t work. So, why can’t we all? Oh yeah...I guess not all of us can write songs like Marc Broussard, and we don’t have a father who can play guitar like Ted Broussard, and we sure as hell didn’t know the words to Johnny B Goode at age five. But Marc Broussard did, and he’s been singing, playing guitar, and writing ever since. Now 20, Marc combines traditional soul, R&B, and hook laden rock into his signature sound; a mature blue eyed soul culled from the myriad musical influences found around him in Lafayette, Louisiana. He’s not one to keep it all to himself, either. Marc says, "There are some great people down in southern Louisiana...You should come!"

Apparently, something is right down there. After being discovered by Leah Simon, from Ripley Records, on a curb in Lafayette, Marc’s debut album was soon underway. Recorded over three weeks at Tony Daigle’s studio in downtown Lafayette, Momentary Setback took shape with help from local session players, including his father, Ted Broussard, on guitar. "There’s nobody better to have playing with me," Marc says of his dad. The production by Columbia A&R rep and EMI songwriter, Marshal Altman (Frankie Machine, Tsar, The Vue), was a "blessing," says Marc. "He’s expanded my musical horizons so far, I can never repay him." The final mix was provided by Joe Zook (Julianne Coryell).

Momentary Setback presents a complex synthesis of styles that reflect Marc’s varied musical influences. The spare vintage keyboard riff heard at the beginning of "My God" immediately calls to mind Stevie Wonder; the full band groove of the irresistible "Just Like That" hints of George Benson and Earth, Wind, and Fire; the more urban programming on "Blue Jeans" suggests that someone listened to their fair share of Bryan McKnight; and the piano and brushes on the more traditional, jazz inflected ballad "French Cafe" reminds you where Marc grew up. "That’s the one song on the album that I didn’t write," he says. "But I wanted a song that presented where I’m from in a good light." So he enlisted the help of local songwriter David Egan, who’s written for such legends as Percy Sledge and Etta James. The result is the evocative "French Cafe." "Jeremiah’s Prayer," a moving acoustic duet with his father, stands as a testament to Marc’s solid family ties, as well as a reflection of his spirituality. "My parents always helped me stay on the right track," he says. "I have knowledge of a higher power and I want to put forth a positive message in my music."

He’ll be bringing that message to the rest of the country soon. Marc and his five piece band will be touring the country in support of Momentary Setback after its release on September 7th. Come see what that crowd recognized when he was five, what got him a record deal on a curb, and what is unmistakable on Momentary Setback. Marc Broussard has something going on in Lafayette and he isn’t going to keep it there.

Excellent songwriting and Broussard's simple and articulate vocals make every one of the tracks on this CD an enjoyable story.

There are elements of matured blues, r&B, folk and funk woven throughout. Broussard appears to showcase a diverse vocal and musical style with tracks ranging from slow, folky ballads to more energetic groovy funk. You can hear the musical influences of Stevie Wonder on one track, smooth jazz elements of George Benson on another and vocals that sound like Lenny Kravitz on another. One thing is for sure, these accoustic and vocal elements mix well to make one great debut CD.

Some great improvisational vocals add an element of extreme depth and spontaneity to this well crafted production. The lyrics although somewhat spiritually thought-provoking and life affirming, are still fun to listen to.

You will be singing after just one listen.

This kid has got it....His first CD is just wonderful. It has a lot of soul, integrity and class. It sounds like he has done his homework and can now let the music out...it's just a natural flow.... French Cafe and MY God are so soothing and smooth. The entire CD gives us a taste of his Wisdom and his play. Some CDs just stick in your head and sort of attach themselves to your aura. This is one of them. If you have forgotton what "Talent" smells like, Marc Broussard will allow you to breathe the aroma of sweetness again. Good show Marc....and much appreciated.

Marc has a light uplifting voice that shows his soulfull feeling through the album. I am yet to see him live, but i cannot wait to get the chance. The strings on a few of the songs are a great choice, and other additions like this show that he is not a cookie cutter type artist. I gave this because i ordered it thinking it would be something i could put on in the backround and enjoy, and when i got it i found that i didn't do any work while i was listening, i just sat there and listened to his acoutic lyrical sound. Excellent.

Marc Broussard is one of the best. I have 2 of his cd's and I love each and every song. I got to see him at Shank Hall in Milwaukee Nov. 9th, 2005 and I was in awe. With this much talent I can't belive that he is still so young. His band is also great. I left that concert overwhelmed, his music just moves you. Everytime I play his music for someone new, they go out and buy his music right away. I think that everyone should buy this cd and Carencro, you will love it!

I drove two hours to see Maroon 5 perform at Myrtle Beach House of Blues, expecting a great show from them. Marc was the first one to perform before Gavin DeGraw and Maroon, and had he been the last, the entire trip and all money spent would have not only been worth it, but a bargain. Marc's set was EASILY the highlight of the night, and he is one of the most talented artists I've heard in my entire life, with an eclectic feel, an unbelieveable voice, and the most energetic, passionate stage presence i've ever seen. HE IS AMAZING, and after buying the live CD of his HOB set that night, I knew I had to have his studio album. It hasn't left my CD changer since I bought it, and i'm sure it won't for a long time. Not to mention, after meeting him after the show, I can honestly say that Marc is a genuinely nice guy. Not only is Marc going to be HUGE one day, but he deserves it. BUY THIS CD, you will most certainly not regret it.

I had the pleasure of discovering Marc at a Gavin DeGraw concert and ever since the moment he burst onto stage, I've been hooked. Although I was just able to buy this cd, I have now seen him perform almost every song on the cd live and let me tell you, while the CD is AMAZING, seeing Marc live is even better. Buy the cd, and his newer release Carencro, then go see him live. There's no one out there right now with as much talent as Marc has.

He is amazing! I actually heard his music while flying on Delta, and immediately I feel in love with him! Right when I got home I bought his CD off here on Amazon. He is a hidden talent with a powerful voice and is extremely pure. I highly recommend this CD!
