Marc Broussard - Home (The dockside sessions)

Marc Broussard wanted to offer his fans something different prior to the release of his next studio album. Rather than a standard greatest hits package or a perfunctory live album, Broussard had something different in mind. His upcoming release Home (The Dockside Sessions) accomplishes both, but in a unique way. It provides the audio tracks from the various videos Broussard has compiled over the course of his career, all of them recorded live at Dockside Studios near his Lafayette Louisiana home.  The album includes a telling remake of Broussard’s signature song -- “Home.”

Although each of the 15 songs on the set represent Broussard’s best known material and fan favorites from throughout his storied career, Home (The Dockside Sessions) is more than simply a reminder of past glories. The material has been retooled and reinterpreted in stripped down aural settings, the result of which provides an intimate opportunity to share the inherent emotion Broussard invested in each of these soulful sessions.

While all the songs resonate as essential additives in Broussard’s repertoire -- one informed by soul, blues, ballads and Americana – there is one song in particular that is of special significance to the artist himself. “Home,” the album’s title track, dates back to the dawn of his career. Once an anthem of hope and determination, it’s come to represent the tack and trajectory of both his life and career. Now, however, he sees the song in a different way, one that’s reflected in his earnest and emotive delivery.

“This song has given me a career,” Broussard remarks. “Without it, I don’t think I’d be where I am. However, when I hear the original, I hear a boy trying to sound like a big man. It needed a redo. Something swampier and dirtier than before. Something that showed its age a little more honestly.”

Likewise, the connection with these videos is clear; these live performance videos have become an eagerly anticipated, ongoing endeavor. Collectively, they have garnered more than 30 million plays. His acoustic version of “Cry to Me” has gained over 10 million views alone on YouTube. 

The same can be said of many of the album’s other offerings, including his interpretations of timeless classics such as “Cry to Me,” “These Arms Of Mine,” “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” and “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know.” Mostly performed solo on acoustic guitar or piano, the arrangements leave room for Broussard’s emotive, expressive vocals to hit all emotional highs. He channels the spirit of the great soul singers Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Al Green and others, in ways that find him climbing to the same sanctified plateau.

About Marc Broussard

It comes as no surprise to anyone who’s followed Broussard’s career since the beginning that his 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. Likewise, it was no surprise well before then, as affirmed by those lucky witnesses who heard him belt "Johnny B. Goode" onstage at age 5, sitting in with his father's band, Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist Ted Broussard’s legendary The Boogie Kings.

In 2004, Broussard released his major-label debut, dubbed Carencro, named after the Louisiana town where he was born and raised. The album’s thematic centerpiece is “Home.” that hickory-smoked slab of Bayou soul that’s aged and evolved along with its singer himself, That album, and the subsequent efforts that followed, revealed Broussard as an old-school Southern soul singer blessed with both a rarefied talent and an innate stylistic and emotional authenticity.
