Mac DeMarco Background
Born Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV, Mac DeMarco was raised in Edmonton,
Alberta. Music clearly ran in his genes, because his grandmother was an opera singer living in New York City, his grandfather
played the saxophone, his aunt sang in a band called Hot City Brass, and his mother also loved to play instruments and sing.
When he was just fourteen years old, DeMarco started to follow after many of family members' footsteps and create his own
music. He joined several bands in high school, with names such as The Meat Cleavers and The Sounds of Love and Outdoor Miners.
he graduated high school in 2008, the only thing on DeMarco's mind was pursuing his musical career. He picked up and moved
to Vancouver so that he could get his music in front of more people, and hopefully into the hands of a producer or label.
While living in Vancouver in 2009, he wrote, sang, and produced his first album, Heat Wave, under the name Makeout Videotape.
Even though he only put out 500 units, his first album completely sold out. Pretty soon, he added a couple of musicians to
his one-man group and became a proper group. Alex Calder, Jen Clement, and DeMarco signed to Unfamiliar Records and toured
throughout North America with the band Japandroids in 2009.
In 2011, DeMarco decided to try giving his solo career another
shot. He moved to Montreal and started recording, eventually releasing an EP titled Rock and Roll Nightclub. This short EP
caught the attention of Captured Tracks, a record label that was instantly taken by DeMarco's sound and hard work ethic, so
they signed him. He has since emerged onto the Canadian music scene with flair, earning the "Best New Music" designation from
Pitchfork and working with Tyler, The Creator to record new songs. DeMarco's fresh style and edgy star quality is undeniable,
and he is rapidly amassing fans around the world. Make sure you don't let the opportunity to see him perform live slip through
your fingers and grab your Mac DeMarco tickets on StubHub today!
Despite his young age, DeMarco
has produced musical to great critical and commercial success. His album, 2, earned so much recognition that it was longlisted
for the 2013 Polaris Music Prize, and his sophomore album, Salad Days, was just recently released on April 1, 2014. Salad
Days received "universal acclaim" on Metacritic, and also acquired high praises from numerous mainstream critics. In addition
to his album's recent success, DeMarco's music has also infiltrated television. His song "Moving Like Mike" appeared in a
Target commercial in 2013, earning him an even greater reputation for being a new artist to watch.
DeMarco has a lot of names. While he was born Vernor Winfield McBriare Smith IV after his great-grandfather, the Minister
of Railways and Telephones in Alberta, his mother changed his name when he was five years old to McBriare Samuel Lanyon DeMarco.
Both names were a mouthful, so Vernor/McBriare decided to go by a name that was much easier to pronounce: Mac.
