Marc Broussard Shares New Video & Single “Fire”
From Forthcoming EP Out This Fall

Marc Broussard shares his new single and video, “Fire,” one of the tracks from his forthcoming EP due this fall. With its bold and brass delivery, “Fire” opens with a shout-out to “the one and only Al Green,” leading into a rollicking, riveting melody fueled by funk and finesse. While Broussard combines his decisive and powerful vocals with an irresistibly infectious groove. The single premiered earlier today via Rock Cellar Magazine. “Fire” is available on July 1.

“Fire” was co-written by Broussard and producer Eric Krasno (Tedeschi Trucks, Lettuce, Soulive). “We were collaborating remotely,” says Broussard, “and Kraz sent me a really nice work-in-progress, and the words fell out of my mouth. After some massaging by Kraz, everything was in the right place. It’s an indelible track. I’ve never seen a reaction like the one I got when I played ‘Fire’ on stage for the first time. People came running down the aisles and couldn’t help but dance and sing along.”

“Fire” offers the first preview of new original songs from Marc Broussard’s forthcoming EP due this Fall. The EP comes on the heels of his 2019 release, A Lullaby Collection and serves as a bridge to a new studio album produced by Joe Bonamassa to be released in early 2023.

Marc Broussard’s incomparable brand of soul–a sweeping combination of rock, blues, R&B, pop, and funk coupled with his powerful vocals, has garnered worldwide praise from critics and fans alike.

The son of Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist Ted Broussard of “The Boogie Kings,” Broussard nurtured his musical gifts at an early age, and the vibrant Lafayette, Louisiana, music scene allowed him to practice his craft consistently from childhood through early adulthood. After releasing a successful independent EP at age 20, Broussard made his major label debut with Carencro. The album featured the hit “Home” and catapulted him into the national spotlight. Broussard released multiple albums with major labels over the next ten years but has recently returned to his independent roots, having released several acclaimed original and charitable cover albums via his SOS Foundation (Save our Soul).

Broussard has a packed tour schedule in 2022 with dates across the US and Europe in a wide variety of venues with headlining shows and festival dates, including the Jazz Aspen Snowmass Festival over the Labor Day weekend. For more information, See Here
