Long hailed as a powerhouse vocalist and king of Bayou Soul, Marc Broussard is altering his iconic recipe of classic soul, R&B, & blues with the help of renowned blues rock guitarist Joe Bonamassa, on his new album S.O.S. 4: Blues For Your Soul. Produced by Bonamassa, who contributes mesmerizing guitar solos on four tracks, alongside longtime collaborator Josh Smith, it is a stunning collection of soul and blues classics plus one Broussard original. S.O.S. 4: Blues for Your Soul is the fourth volume in Broussard's ongoing philanthropic album series, available via Bonamassa's own Keeping the Blues Alive Records.
With the burning teamwork of Broussard-Bonamassa and all the players on the album, each of the twelve tracks speaks to the deepest part of the soul. Whether it's Son House's "Empire State Express," Johnny "Guitar" Watson's "Cuttin' In," Bobby Blue Bland's "I've Got to Use My Imagination" to Howlin' Wolf's "I Asked for Water" and the sole Broussard original, co-written with Josh Smith and Calvin Turner, "When Will I Let Her Go," S.O.S. 4: Blues for Your Soul is a remarkable achievement and provides a captivating showcase for Broussard's muscular and passionate singing.
Created with an idea for raising funds to help our country's underprivileged youth, S.O.S. 4: Blues For The Soul arrives with a double wallop: great music for a great cause. A significant portion of proceeds from this Save Our Soul album will be donated to Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation to support youth rehabilitation through music. This includes a partnership with Guitars Over Guns, a Miami-based nonprofit that offers students from the most vulnerable communities a powerful combination of music education and mentorship.
The son of Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist Ted Broussard of "The Boogie Kings," Broussard nurtured his musical gifts at an early age in the vibrant Lafayette, Louisiana music scene. After releasing a highly successful independent EP at age 20, Broussard made his major-label debut with Carencro. The album featured the breakout hit "Home" and catapulted him into the national spotlight. NPR cited, "His music radiates soulful Louisiana blues, but his songs blend those influences with raucous rock 'n' roll to create unique and infectious music." Washington Times hailed, "Few modern voices are as powerful as Marc Broussard's soulful, Bayou-bred baritone."
Broussard released multiple albums with major labels over the last ten years before returning to his independent roots with several acclaimed original recordings and charitable cover albums via his S.O.S. Foundation (Save our Soul).
Marc Broussard's philanthropic efforts extend well over a decade, beginning with his self-released album Bootleg to Benefit the Victims of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and his efforts to organize the Momentary Setback Fund to provide financial assistance to those displaced by both Hurricane Katrina and Hurrican Rita. In 2015, to further his commitment to tying music to a mission, he established the S.O.S. Foundation as a conduit to raise money for worthy causes, including the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, the City of Refuge in Atlanta, and Our Lady of the Lake Children's Hospital in Baton Rouge, LA. https://www.marcbroussard.com/charity-1
S.O.S. 4: Blues for Your Soul is a follow-up to 2019's A Lullaby Collection SOS III, a series of standards geared towards a younger audience with the accompanying book, I Love You For You, marking Broussard's debut as an author.
TV performances include The Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live, CBS Saturday Morning, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival/AXS TV, and many more. In 2019, his performance on the PBS TV Series The Kate received an Emmy nomination. Broussard's songs have been placed in numerous films and TV shows, including American Idol, The Voice, Dancing with the Stars, and So You Think You Can Dance, to name a few. Additionally, he has been a featured performer on numerous recordings, including the GRAMMY-nominated I Wanna Sing Right: Rediscovering Lomax in the Evangeline Country.
