Marc Broussard:
By Lynne Bronstein
Momentary Setback (CD Ripley)

Marc Broussard has a lot to look forward to. He's been signed to a major label deal, and he's been touring with bands like the Indigo Girls and Violent Femmes. But as the title of his independent album, Momentary Setback indicates, 21-year old Marc has had his ups and downs.

At age 5, after seeing Back To The Future, Marc was heard trying to sing "Johnny B. Goode" by his father, Ted Broussard who played in the New Orleans band The Boogie Kings. Dad taught young Marc the song and brought him on stage to sing it.

By his late teens, Marc was going through some tough times. After a brief stint with a rock band, he tried in vain to adjust to the regular working world. "I was just fooling around at home with music," he says. After a friend persuaded him to play at a local show, Marc met Leah Simon, a record promoter's partner. "She allowed me to become a full-time musician," he explains. It was Leah Simon who created the Ripley Records label on which Marc released Momentary Setback last year, and it was through her contacts that Marc finally came to the attention of Island/Def Jam Records which signed him. He expects to begin recording within the next few months.

Regarding the soul roots of his music, Marc says: "Don't get me wrong, I'm a Cajun through and through. But I have no intention of playing Cajun music full time." He cites Bill Withers, Donny Hathaway, and Otis Redding among his influences and if the soul flavor of Momentary Setback is any indication, his next album will continue in that vein. "I just work out my own niche and I hope I come up with something nobody's ever heard before." n
