Marc Broussard revisits first hit 'Home' and others on acoustic album

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) 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 remake of Broussard’s signature song -- “Home.”

Home (The Dockside Sessions) will be released on April 5 on digital and CD formats and is  available for pre-order now.

“This song has given me a career,” Broussard remarks of the title track. “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.”

The live performance videos have garnered more than 30 million plays. His acoustic version of the classic “Cry to Me” has gained over 10 million views on YouTube.

Interpretations of classics such as “These Arms Of Mine,” “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man” and “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know” are mostly performed solo on acoustic guitar or piano. 

Broussard is currently on tour which includes a performance at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 2. Initial tour dates listed below with more to be added soon. For updates and more information visit
