This past weekend in New Orleans I also had the opportunity to see client Marc Broussard perform. If you tend to judge book by its cover, you would not look at Broussard and his long, red, mountain man beard and think "I bet he's a great soul singer." But all those preconceptions go out the window once the music starts. Somehow his voice is much older than he is. Broussard is in his early 30s I think, but his voice has decades more feeling, experience, and power. It is all at once gritty, tender, and vibrant. And in a world where so many singers have been auto-tuned to plastic perfection, Broussard stands out as a singer who is the real deal.
