Marc Broussard To Release A Life Worth Living On 7/29

Louisiana "Bayou soul" singer/songwriter Marc Broussard will release his long-awaited new album A Life Worth Living on July 29 via Vanguard Records. The new project, a tribute to Broussard's late grandmother, was originally scheduled for an early 2013 street. This is Broussard's first studio effort since his 2011 self-titled album. In teaser cover art, Broussard has even made a gentle nod to the art of Norman Rockwell.

Marc Broussard is the son of acclaimed Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist and former member of The Boogie Kings, Ted Broussard. He has performed on numerous TV programs including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Conan O'Brien, CBS Saturday Early Show, Larry King Live and has toured with such artists as Dave Matthews Band, Maroon 5, Bonnie Raitt, Willie Nelson and Chris Isaak.

Broussard calls the upcoming record “a little more adult and with a little more heart” than the last two albums- more of a Ray LaMontagne sound and that his full band stage show will take on a Black Crowes vibe.

“It will be a more acoustically driven record, more than likely. That is the plan, but the producer might have a different idea in mind. My plan is to have a very organic sounding record. I have tons of material that has been written. I have been writing over the course of the last year and have been writing more intensely in the last couple of months.”
