Marc Broussard returns to the Capitol Theatre! Marc 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 Famer 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 a soul covers album, appropriately titled Save Our Soul 2, for charity in 2016 and 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 5 million views on YouTube.
Marc’s latest original album, Easy to Love, was hailed by Rolling Stone magazine “…mixes his signature blues-influenced howl with doses of gospel and country.” The lead single off the album Don’t Be Afraid to Call Me was featured on Rolling Stone Country and has received significant airplay on Sirius XM: The Highway. Marc continues to tour in support of the album to sold-out crowds around the U.S and is constantly tapped to play Blues, Soul and Jazz Festivals. Kristopher James will open the show.
Special guest Kristopher James will open the show.
Tickets are $40, $30, and $20. Performance is at the Capitol Theatre, 405 Cleveland St, Downtown Clearwater.
