Record Label

Undertow Records was started in 1996 by Mark Ray when he released albums by his band, Waterloo and a band they shared a studio space with, Nadine. Undertow serves as a conduit for artists to release their albums to a wider audience through digital, retail, and direct sales outlets. The artists retain ownership and control of their music at all times. No formal contracts are drawn up between artists and Undertow.

Undertow has released records for artists such as Jay Bennett (of Wilco fame), Will Johnson (of Centro-Matic), Amazing Pilots, Artificial Hearts, The Redwalls, The Cush, Nadine, Magnolia Summer, Glossary, Dreadful Yawns, Waterloo, Anna Fermin, Steve Dawson, J Tillman, and South San Gabriel.

Mark Ray and Chris Grabau run the day to day operations of Undertow Records.

Artist Management

Undertow artist management was started by Bob Andrews in 1996 after he joined forces with Mark Ray's record label for the release of Nadine's debut album. The original roster was Nadine, Centro-matic, and Dolly Varden. Andrews split his time between the label and management until 2002 when he started focusing solely on artist management while expanding the roster to include Pedro the Lion , Grammy Award winner Jesse Harris and American Music Club.
