Music has been an integral part of Broussard’s life ever since he was a child. He is the son of Ted Broussard, who was a member of “The Boogie Kings” and an inductee of the “Louisiana Hall of Fame”. Thus, he grew up to the music that his father would play for him. When he was older, he decided to form a band of his own, and thus joined Y, a group that played Christian rock music. They started small, as a local band only, but did not remain together for very long. After that, he made several attempts to make it big as a solo artist. He released a number of independent tracks, and combined them into a record in 2002 called “Momentary Setback”. The album contained a song called “The Wanderer”, which became a hit on the indie rock charts. The song spoke of the journey towards discovering oneself. He went on to record this song again when he scored a deal with a major label, “Island Records”, and included it in his first commercial release, “Carencro”. The name of the record came from Carencro, Louisiana, the place where he was born and raised.
By 2007, he released a follow up record, “S.O.S: Save Our Soul”. This record was a compilation of a number of covers of other artists, with one or two original songs. It was this effort that finally allowed him to crack the top 100 ranks in the Billboard 200 charts. The album peaked at number 96, with Broussard making the transition from a “heatseaker” to a charting artist. In January of 2008, he worked on and released an EP called “Must Be The Water”. He performed the entire set list from this work on the “Rock Boat” festival. He has performed here numerous times before and continues to frequent it to this date. He later on released this album through the second major company he got signed to, “Atlantic Records”.
Broussard’s songs have been used in many different television shows and have been covered by other famous artists as well. The single “Home” was featured in “Clash of the Choirs”. It was also performed by country music singer Blake Shelton and multi-platinum selling pop artist, Kelly Clarkson as well. In 2008, “Must Be the Water” became the official song for the “NBA All Star” championships. It was around this time that he received the most publicity, performing at various talk shows such as “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, and “Larry King Live” amongst others. Another one of his tracks, “Hard Knocks” became the theme song for the HBO series of the same name as the title of the song.
His most recent work is his self titled album. So far, it has produced two hit singles, “Only Everything” and “Lucky”. The album has been described by Soul Tracks as being more commercial sounding than his earlier work. This has been credited to the fact that his popularity has increased in the past two years and he thus wants to put out material that will help him in gaining a broader audience. His transition from a traditional bluesy sound to a more pop rock orientation has also been noticed with this album. Still, Broussard’s precision and finesse remains, even now, his biggest attribute.
