Atlantic recording artist Marc Broussard, who’s latest release is “KEEP COMING BACK”, has unveiled a new slate of headline dates The just-announced schedule, featuring The Gabe Dixon Band and Josh Hoge as main support, begins November 8th at Washington, DC's Sixth & I Historic Synagogue, and then continues through the end of the month (see below itinerary. Broussard has also scheduled an upcoming live performance on NBC's "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," set for Wednesday, October 8th.. The national television appearance will herald the Louisiana-based bayou soul troubadour's North American tour supporting longtime friend Sara Bareilles, which kicks off the following day, October 9th, at San Diego's Spreckels Theatre. The schedule will then travel through early November. Broussard, who is currently on the road headlining his own "Keep Coming Back Tour," has also confirmed a festival appearance at New Orleans' annual Voodoo Music Experience, slated for October 25th.

"KEEP COMING BACK" arrived on September 16th to acclamation. "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 praises 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."

"Broussard possesses the soulful baritone pipes and honest delivery of a musician at least twice his age," hailed Live Daily. "Think Marvin Gaye, Al Green, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding." 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."

"KEEP COMING BACK" more than confirms Broussard as an artist uniquely gifted in channeling the multiple spirits of classic R&B and soul into contemporary terms. The Louisiana-based bayou soul troubadour recorded the collection earlier this year in a whirlwind 11-day session at Nashville's historic Ocean Way Studios. In addition, two noteworthy guests appear on "KEEP COMING BACK": LeAnn Rimes - whose country-meets-swamp-blues turn on "When It's Good" returns the compliment Broussard paid as co-writer and vocal partner on "Nothing Wrong," from her top 5-charting 2007 album, "FAMILY" -- and pop/rock sensation Sara Bareilles, who has opened several Broussard tours, and lends vocals to the powerful ballad, "Why Should She Wait."
