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.
There are only a few singers who dominate today’s soul music, and Marc Broussard is one of them. His new album, S.O.S. 4: BLUES FOR YOUR SOUL, is one he was born to make. Produced by blues kingpin Joe Bonamassa, it is a stunning collection of soul and blues classics that burn right to the center of the human experience. Broussard finds the perfect spot to show not only what he’s learned the past twenty-plus years of recording and touring but also able to grasp the very essence of some of America’s most powerful roots and make something of his very own from it.
Marc Broussard has achieved something that has all the elements of a classic album, one that arrives with a knockout punch and will likely grow even more luminous over the years. With special guests like Bonamassa, Josh Smith, Roddie Romero, JJ Grey, Eric Krasno, and old pal Calvin Turner, Broussard’s first bandmate, it is a real-life gathering of an esteemed musical tribe. Created with an idea for raising funds to help one of our country’s neediest citizens, S.O.S. 4: BLUES FOR YOUR SOUL arrives with a double wallop: great music for a great cause. Released through Bonamassa’s Keeping the Blues Alive Records, half of all profits from BLUES FOR YOUR SOUL will be donated to a charity of Marc’s choosing.
“I’m really proud of all the S.O.S albums,” Broussard states. “But this one seems really fantastic because we have some extra strength with my pal Joe Bonamassa. His stepping up to the plate now by producing and playing on the record plus releasing it on his label is truly a gift.
