Mac DeMarco

Mac DeMarco. Who is Mac DeMarco you may ask. Mac DeMarco is a singer-songwriter and the genre of music he plays/sings is indie rock. Indie rock is alternative rock that started of in the United Kingdom and in the United States in the year 1980. After the year 1980 the cultural term alternative term lost it original meaning.

Mac DeMarco is originally from Duncan, British Columbia, Canada. Mac DeMarco was born on April 30,1990. Mac was an only child and was raised by his mother. Mac was originally named after his great grandfather, but his mother later on changed his named. Ever since mac was younger he has always had the passion for music for example when Mac was in high school he was in many bands like the Meat Cleavers. After Mac graduated high school he moved to vancouver to self-produce an album. Once he released his album, the album sold out within days. That’s when Mac DeMarco realized he was truly passionate and good at what he was doing.

After Mac DeMarco sold his first self-produced album he started to play for night clubs and open for concerts. Mac later released a new album called Salad days. After the the release of the album it sold out in an instant. Some songs that I recommend to listen are one more love song and dreams from yesterday theses songs are from his latest album called this old dog. This album was released on May 5,2017 I highly recommend listening to his songs

The Power of Music

What is music? Music is a source of instruments and vocals put together to form beautiful melody to please ones ears. Music has been around for the last 55,000 years. Music all started with a man that started of with just a few simple vocal notes do,re,mi.fa,,ti,do. But as years went by music has evolved and we’ve evolved with music. The beauty about music is that you don’t always have to have an instrument you can make music out of anything like a bucket and a spoon. There are so many was to create music.                                                                                                                                                                                                 Music has been around for many years and has had a powerful impact on many people over the ages. There are many forms of music such as classical, rock, jazz, hip-hop,and many more genres. Today’s music is not the same as how it was 20 or 60 years ago. Today’s music focuses more on drugs and  alcohol. All people from all ages are listening to music not even realizing the actual meaning of their favorite song. Although there are artist that do sing about these topics but they do it in a good way for example  like the artist Logic. Logic is a rapper that raps about his life and how some of these topics like drugs has affected his life and how he has learned from them.                                                                                                                                                                                      Although there are artist that don’t talk about drugs or alcohol but they sing about what’s happening in today’s society like suicide,depression and not being accepted for who you are. Some of these songs do have a powerful messages. One song that i have heard that sent out a powerful message would have to be the song 1-800-273-8255 by logic featuring Alessia Cara and Khalid. This song is about suicide prevention and i feel it’s sending out a message to those who are suffering and that are planning to take there life to realize how special they really are  and that they deserve to live. As you read i hope you realize how songs can have a powerful impact on you and send powerful messages to those who really need them.
