Down is a heavy metal band from New Orleans that has been fusing stoner and doom metal since 1991. Often referred to as a supergroup, the band's core members are all in prominent metal bands including Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar and Eyehategod. Mostly by word of mouth and the passing around of the band's demo tape, Down attracted enough attention for its 1995 debut album NOLA, that the record went platinum and earned widespread critical acclaim in the metal community. Now hailed as a landmark album, the record spawned the bands first tour, though its members returned to their respective bands upon the group's return. Down returned in 2002 with Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow, and has since continued to record and perform music.
Louisiana-born artist Marc Broussard is a singer/songwriter and musician who incorporates his Bayou roots into a soulful mix of blues, rock, pop and R&B. After spending time in the short-lived band Y, he began writing solo material and released his debut studio album Momentary Setback, in 2002. The record held his first hit, "The Wanderer," and captured the attention of Island Records, who released his sophomore album Carencro, in 2004. Broussard eventually signed with major label Atlantic Records and dropped his fourth studio albumKeep Coming Back, in 2008, followed by his self-titled 2011 LP.
