Marc Broussard is an artist with a unique gift of 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 20. It was no secret before then, going back to those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5 while sitting in with his father's band. Throughout his life, Broussard has been tapped as a talent to watch.
Marc’s song “Home” was successful at radio and catapulted him onto the national touring stage. His music has been placed in many TV shows and movies. The timeless, soulful nature of Marc’s vocal lends well to Film and TV, and will continue to do so for years to come.
Marc inked a deal with Vanguard records in July 2012 and will be writing and recording this fall. He will be releasing an LP early 2013 as well as touring extensively. Marc Broussard's website

His recently released single “Summertime On My Mind” has become a summer anthem and has received recognition from several viral entertainment sites including BroBible, BuzzFeed, ClevverMusic, Mashable and Tone It Up.
James recently played a weeklong residency at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas in June and just finished headlining the Common Threads Tour for Patagonia in Australia, which makes his fifth tour of Australia to date. Additionally, he has toured the nation with acts such as Mike Posner and O.A.R., and has performed over 700 shows in the past four years. He has sold out shows at the Troubadour in Los Angeles and the House Of Blues in Chicago and is a regular performer at PGA events including the Coors Light Birds Nest at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, Farmer’s Insurance Rock Ball, HP Byron Nelson Pavilion After Dark and more.
