Marc Broussard: 5 Albums That Changed My Life

Soulful rock musician Marc Broussard recently put out his ninth record, Easy to Love, and, to celebrate, he put together a list of albums that changed his life.

* * *

Blake Mills, Heigh Ho

Blake’s music has been a major influence ever since I found out about him around four years ago. His production choices are always bold and stunning. His penchant for space augmented by audacious moments of sonic wonderment heavily influenced several tracks on Easy To Love, especially the title cut and ‘Memory of You.’

The Bros. Landreth, Let It Lie

The honesty and heart on display on this album had me hooked from jump. Musicianship of the highest order combined with lyricism that cuts straight to my core. The roots elements of the project combine with the soulful vocals in all the ways I look for in my favorite music.

Emily King, The Switch

Emily is a master of space and understatement. What’s NOT being played or sung is almost as important as what’s on the tape. I couldn’t stop listening for several months, and the songs still stay with me now. Again, bold production choices, impeccable arrangements and genuine artistry make for a supremely entertaining listening experience.

Marvin Gaye, What’s Going On

This classic from one of the greatest to ever live has been on my mind for a number of years now. It’s a testament to the power of art to shape culture in ways that are both positive and long-lasting. Art as activism is the only way I feel adequately prepared to enter into discussions that are often fraught with problems and controversy.

Gabe Dixon, Turns to Gold

Gabe is and has always been one of my favorites. His records continue to deliver, time and again. It’s contemporaries like Gabe that push me to be better than I’ve been and encourage me to aspire to greatness at all times.
