Marc Broussard Welcomes Fans to His "Living Room"; Louisiana Soul Singer Announces Back-to-Basics Tour; Stripped-Down Dates See Broussard and His Band Performing Acoustically in Intimate Venues; "Welcome To My Living Room" Tour Set to Take Off on October 13th in Alexandria, Virginia

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - August 6, 2009) - Atlantic recording artist Marc Broussard has unveiled details of his upcoming headline tour. The 15-city trek -- dubbed "Marc Broussard: Welcome To My Living Room" -- will see the Louisiana-based bayou soul troubadour performing acoustically in intimate venues across the country, accompanied by acclaimed guitarist Joe Stark (Sons of William) and drummer/percussionist Chad Gilmore. The tour begins on October 13th at the Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, Virginia, and then travels the U.S. through the November 6th finale at the House Of Blues in Houston, TX (see below itinerary).

Pre-sale tickets for the "Welcome To My Living Room" tour are now on sale to members of "Bayou Club," the official Marc Broussard Fan Club (located at http://bayou-club.com). Further pre-sale tickets will go on sale on Saturday, August 8th, with all remaining tickets then being made available to the general public on Friday, August 14th.

The back-to-basics tour will be highlighted by songs from Broussard's earlier material on "Momentary Setback," "Carencro," and his most recent Atlantic Records debut, "KEEP COMING BACK." In addition, fans can expect a preview of new songs.

Broussard's third full-length collection, "KEEP COMING BACK," includes the hit single/video, "When It's Good (Feat. LeAnn Rimes)" and received beaucoup critical acclamation upon its release last September. "Justin T., take note: Marc Broussard is the real blue-eyed, blond, Southern soul singer," wrote Vanity Fair's Lisa Robinson. "He's been compared to Donnie Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, and Van Morrison, and his new album, 'KEEP COMING BACK,' features the outstanding 'Real Good Thing.'" Performing Songwriter also praised the collection, stating "Next time you hear a soul-music fanatic say, 'They don't make 'em like that anymore,' let them hear 'KEEP COMING BACK'... Broussard gives what amounts to a master class in soul singing."

The New York Post declared that "KEEP COMING BACK" "captures (Broussard's) groovy live sound," while the Philadelphia Daily News praised the set in a three-and-a-half starred rave as "one of Broussard's best efforts. It allows him to bend his voice from the raspy blues of swamp rock to the pitch-perfect tenor that dominates most of the tracks."
