Birmingham quintet Boat To Row have earned an outstanding live reputation since their beginnings as a solo project in 2009. They combine a genuine ease in each other's musical company with an energetic, skilfully crafted sound. Their songs play host to winding tales, journeying through light and shade. Expect an intricate set woven with strings and vocal harmonies, layered with an ever-expanding collection of instruments.
They have supported Slow Club, Willy Mason and Johnny Flynn, as well as playing festivals such as Truck, Y Not, 2000 Trees and Moseley Folk Festival. They have toured with Dog Is Dead, Gemma Hayes and Hot Feet, and recently joined Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun and Devon Sproule for dates on their UK tours. Crossroads, Grassmarket and Loyal Light EPs have paved the way for more a substantial future release.
Their new single Tightrope will be released on 10th February 2014 on their own label, Nocturne Records, available on 7-inch vinyl and digital download.
