Meet Sam Broussard

Sam Broussard



A high-wire artist on an open-tuned guitar, Sam Broussard writes and performs unforgettably cinematic songs bound by gorgeous melodies, soaring vocals and dazzling musicianship.Expect out-of-the-ordinary songwriting and hints of rhythms picked up in travels to Africa and the Philippines on Geeks, Broussard's stunning 15-song debut release. From the lush solo performance of "That's Us" through the full acoustic production of "Screws, Pins and Bolts," Geeks tells memorable tales of our neighbors, relationships and, most importantly, moments of decision.

Fans of Sam's work with a range of artists (including underground band Radio Free Nashville, Sonny Landreth, Stephan Eicher, Michael Doucet, T-Mamou, Jimmy Buffett and Steve Riley & The Mamou Playboys) will find Geeks headed for new territory. Broussard plays virtually all the instruments on the disc, and consistently delivers unique and evocative takes on the lives he chronicles.

As a solo performer, Broussard effectively translates the album's full production to a single low-tuned guitar and his powerful vocal attack. In the words of acclaimed artists Pete & Maura Kennedy, "Sam is a unique new voice on the scene. Great songwriting, great vocals, great guitar. These songs are highly personal, but grow from the deepest roots of American music."
