Marc Broussard with Special Guest Drew Angus
April 2 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm$29 – $49
An old-school Southern soul singer blessed with both a rarefied talent and an innate stylistic and emotional authenticity, an artist whose old school blend of rock, R&B, soul, and sensitivity have made him one of the most indelible artists of his generation. Marc Broussard supports his new studio album entitled A Lullaby Collection and book, I Love You For You, created to educate and inspire younger audiences. The album, the third in Broussard’s independently released SOS (“Save Our Soul”) series, finds him reimagining a series of standards that are easily identified as lullabies — songs such as “Danny Boy,” “Sweet Baby James,” “Moon River,” among others, which are calming, soothing and enticing all at the same time. The 11-song album also includes two Broussard originals, “Bedtime” and “Gavin’s Song.” While the songs might be geared to younger ears, Broussard’s soulful signature sound, expressive vocals and sweeping orchestration offer a universal appeal for listeners of all ages. “I wanted this to be a recognizable covers album,” Broussard explains. “Danny Boy” and “Moon River” were songs I could never imagine recording. But when I did my research and heard the various versions of these songs, especially the Andy Williams’ renditions, I was so taken. I was never a big Andy Williams fan, but all of a sudden, I found his voice so spectacular. There is grace attached to every one of his performances that I wanted to emulate throughout this entire record. No other artist had done this to me.”
