Warren Storm - Taking the World, by Storm - New Release Review

I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, Taking the World, by Storm from Warren "Storm" Schexnider and I like it. Opening with John Fogerty's Long As I Can See The Light and featuring Fogerty on vocal with Storm, the original arrangement is pretty much intact with Eric Adcock on piano, Roddie Romero on guitar, Chris French on bass, Gary Usie on drums and featuring a nice sax solo by Derek Huston. On Earl King's Lonely Nights, you get the real feel of syrupy swampy blues with solid vocals by Storm and a real nice guitar solo by Romero and piano solo by Adcock. Very nice.  Bobby Charles' Tennessee Blues has the real flavor of traditional country and western music. With Richard Comeaux on pedal steel, the addition of Beau Thomas on fiddle and the conventional piano treatment by Adcock makes this one of my favorites. Another traditional country track, Merle Haggard's My House Of Memories has great poise and Storm digs in on vocal with beautiful piano ornamentation by Adcock. Wrapping the release is Raining In My Heart with some of Storm's best vocals on the release. A traditional Louisiana sound sends this release off in a cool way.

Steam Roller Blues - Marc Broussard

Marc Broussard (born January 14, 1982) is an American singer-songwriter. His style is best described as "Bayou Soul," a mix of funk, blues, R&B, rock, and pop, matched with distinct Southern roots. In his career, he has released four studio albums and has charted twice on Hot Adult Top 40 Tracks.
Marc Broussard is the son of acclaimed Louisiana Hall of Fame guitarist and former member of The Boogie Kings, Ted Broussard. Marc was raised in Carencro, Louisiana and Lafayette, Louisiana
In 2001 Broussard was part of Y, a Christian band. The short-lived band was based out of New Iberia, Louisiana. Broussard's solo career started with the release of several independent efforts, including 2002's Momentary Setback which spawned the hit "The Wanderer", a song about self-discovery. A re-worked version of the song appears on his first major album Carencro (Island Records). It was released on August 3, 2004. The album's title pays tribute to the musician's hometown of Carencro, Louisiana, where he still resides.

In 2007, he released S.O.S.: Save Our Soul, an album consisting almost entirely of cover songs. The album was his first to reach the top 100 of the Billboard 200 in the U.S., debuting and peaking at #96: this had the effect of "graduating" him from the Top Heatseekers chart, which consists of albums by artists who have never reached the top 100.

Broussard finished recording the Must Be The Water EP on the Rock Boat VII in January 2008. He is no stranger to The Rock Boat, which is an annual cruise and music festival. This is Broussard’s first release with his new label, Atlantic Records, with which he signed a multi-album contract in 2007.

Broussard's music has been featured on shows such as Clash of the Choirs in which "Home" was performed by a Blake Shelton led choir. Singer Kelly Clarkson performed "Home" as part of her live setlist in 2006-07. Most recently, "Must Be the Water" was the theme song for the 2008 NBA All-Star Game. Broussard has been a featured performer on many TV programs including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, A&E Breakfast with the Arts, The Jimmy Kimmel Show, The Late Show with Conan O’Brien, CBS Saturday Early Show, Larry King Live "Lopez Tonight", and CBS’s Saturday Morning’s Second Cup Cafe.

In 2008, he released his third full-length studio album, Keep Coming Back. The song "Hard Knocks" from this album was featured in the last episode of the 2009 season of Hard Knocks on HBO featuring the Cincinnati Bengals.

Broussard's newest album, Marc Broussard was released on June 14, 2011. An early release called Marc Broussard EP was released on March 22, 2011 and features the new singles "Lucky" and "Only Everything."
