Row Boat is a post-rock / ambient solo project by Mark Wardale. Mark cites several Scandinavian influences behind Row Boat, including classical Nordic sounds and current musical acts such as Sigur Ros, Bjork and Agent Fresco. Mark describes Row Boat as, “an effort to depict the nature of Scandinavia in note form.” The result is a lush, alternative-rock, ethereal ambience created from a merging of organic strings, horns, bowed guitar work, drums and bass.
Row Boat’s first release was the 2009 ambient E.P. “Romance.” It was not until May 2012 when an unannounced second EP surfaced titled “Svaret är Ja,” [The Answer is Yes]. In 2013, Row Boat took to a busy year with the release of the first full length album, “Ett,” which received glowing reviews from critics globally. This was recently followed up in 2014 with the successful EP ‘Shallow Waters’. He has found his place under the gorgeous wings of Fluttery Records and he is in the label since the 2014 album "In Between".
