A contemporary blend of R&B, rock and soul will fill the Knitting Factory Concert House on Saturday as Marc Broussard takes the stage in support of his latest album.

“Keep Coming Back” is Broussard’s first return to the studio for a full-length album since 2007.

“ ‘Keep Coming Back’ is me writing what I want to write at this moment in time,” Broussard said in a press release from JMAX Productions, who is the promoter for this event.

Broussard has toured with popular musicians such as Maroon 5, Dave Matthews Band and Willie Nelson, using the same band onstage that he uses in the studio.

“I’ve always recorded with them,” Broussard said. “No producer I’ve ever worked with would ever have a problem with them, because they’re just that good.”

Broussard independently wrote and recorded his first album, “Momentary Setback,” in 2002 at age 20. After spending time on the road developing his career, Broussard landed a deal with Atlantic Records.

“I’m very content to be able to do this at Atlantic Records, where the tradition for real music is so strong,” Broussard said. The deal from Atlantic Records allowed him to record his newest album in Nashville, Tenn., which he did in just 11 days.

“None of these tunes where rehearsed,” Broussard said. He demoed the tracks himself and allowed the studio musicians to hear the direction of each song.

“Everyone would listen, then get back to the studio and play,” Broussard said. “You can tell on the tape that we were really having a good time.”

Broussard finds the biggest challenge, and the most frequent request from his fans, is to be making a record that provides justice for his live show.

“With ‘Keep Coming Back,’ I feel that we’ve finally delivered an album that does exactly that,” Broussard said.

The opening acts for Broussard will be the ladies of the soul quartet Chic Gamine, who hail from Canada. Accompanied by their “beats” man Sacha Daoud, Chic Gamine also has a new album titled “City City.”

Along for the ride on Broussard’s tour of the West is self-taught guitarist Matt Hires, who is taking his acoustically pop sound on the road.

His latest solo album, “Take us to the Start,” arises from his days of playing in Brer, a band from Florida, which helped him grow as a musician.

The doors open for this event at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $17.50 to 40. Advance tickets cost $16.50.
