“Tackling Little Milton was a daunting task,” said Marc Broussard. “He had an epic voice that was intimidating to attempt. I only hope I did him justice. I didn’t want to overdo it, but we wanted to put our stamp where it needed to be. I’m so glad we did.”

Releases New Album:

The roots music fireworks that Broussard-Bonamassa’s fervent collaboration produces on S.O.S. 4 are perfectly exemplified by the song “That’s What Love Will Make You Do.” Blues for Your Soul, which Broussard has probably released the best album to date, From Son House’s “Empire State Express,”

Johnny “Guitar” Watson’s “Cuttin’ In,” Bobby Blue Bland’s “I’ve Got to Use My Imagination,” Howlin’ Wolf’s “I Asked for Water,” and the only Broussard original, “When Will I Let Her Go,” each of the twelve tracks speaks to the deepest part of the soul. S.O.S. 4:

Blues For Your Soul is a remarkable achievement that showcases Broussard’s powerful and passionate singing in a captivating way. “Blues is something in my wheelhouse,” said Marc Broussard, who decided blues would make up a big part of the new addition to the S.O.S. series, and went to Joe Bonamassa for help.

“I couldn’t think of a better person than him. I reached out directly to Joe, and he jumped at it. It was just that easy. It’s a real complementary relationship, that’s for sure. We got into the studio, and it worked immediately.”

Charity Work

Singing Machine - THE #1 BRAND IN KARAOKE

Broussard’s long-standing involvement in charitable endeavors is highlighted in SOS 4: Blues For Your Soul. His ongoing series of benefit albums known as SOS (Save Our Soul) each support a distinct cause.

“I started doing cover records after I was released from my very first contract with a major label,” explained Marc Broussard. “I finally went independent and decided to record albums to raise funds for charity. The first of those projects was to raise money for a homeless women’s and children’s shelter. Second, we did an album to raise funds for a children’s hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.”

The self-released 2005 album Bootleg to Benefit the Victims of Hurricane Katrina and Marc Broussard’s efforts to establish the Momentary Setback Fund to assist those displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita are just two examples of his philanthropic endeavors that span well over a decade.

He established the S.O.S. Foundation in 2015 to further his commitment to tying music to a cause and use it to raise funds for worthy organizations like the United Way, Habitat for Humanity, the City of Refuge in Atlanta, and Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

The three-time GRAMMY-nominated blues-rock artist Joe Bonamassa established the registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization known as the Keeping the Blues Alive Foundation (or KTBA) in 2011.

Relief grants and music education programs for students and teachers all over the country are supported by KTBA, which encourages a love of music. Over 88,000 students have been helped by over $2 million in donations made by KTBA to schools in every state.

The Fueling Musicians Program, which has won awards, was established in 2020 as a relief fund to assist touring musicians in returning to the road. The program’s goal is to help musicians by making it possible for them to pay for things like housing, food, and medical bills. Over 350 musicians in need of assistance have received assistance from KTBA thus far.
