Biography

Makar (Mah-Kar) is a 15th century Scottish term meaning Poet and also a dark and groovy little New York band. An acoustic guitar and piano driven indie-rock band that makes Punk and Poet rejoice and dance together.

Makar began with Mark looking for a band to join as a singer and finding nothing appealing, so Andrea said “why don’t you write your own songs?” So he did! But Andrea kept butting in and adding her 2 cents, so Mark said, “why don’t you write a song?” So she did. And that’s where it all began!

Makar consists of Andrea DeAngelis, co-singer/songwriter/guitarist from New Jersey and Mark Purnell, co-singer/songwriter/pianist from New York.

Beginning in 2002-03, Makar played their first, nail-biting, exciting NY gigs at places like Luna Lounge, CBGBs gallery, Knitting Factory and Pianos and began recording their 18-song debut album, 99 Cent Dreams, on July 14, 2002 at Multiway Studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

In 2005 the debut album, 99 Cent Dreams, arrived and Makar went to work promoting the hell out of it! Our songs got played all over the world on indie and internet radio stations. We received many wonderful and heartfelt reviews from fans and critics alike, had thousands of downloads, sold many physical as well as digital copies. We even did a TV appearance or two!! Our first music video for the song “I Hate My Job” directed by Brian Schulz got played on MTV2 and won honorable mention on Mendham NJ cable tv. We made many incredible fans and played many a great show, even got signed to a non-exclusive deal with a little indie label named Sizzleteen Records! And that’s only the beginning kids!!
