Bywater Call: New Single, Album on the way & UK Tour due October

Canadian roots, rock, and soul band Bywater Call see spring in with their new single, ‘Holler’, and will be over in the UK towards the end of the year, for an October headline tour.

A vivacious, delta blues-based stomper, Holler, is available on all streaming platforms here and you can check out the music video for the new single right here at RAMzine.

“Lyrically and musically, ‘Holler’ embodies seedy motel rooms, dirty little secrets, and a woman who knows what she wants, unashamedly and without apology,” said Bywater Call’s lead singer, Meghan Parnell. “The song embraces uninhibited passion.”

From guitarist Dave Barnes’ haunting first notes on resonator guitar, alongside Parnell’s low-fi, high-quality serenade, all the way through to the climax, this song is an infectious blend of catchy melodies, pulsating beats, and powerful, soaring vocals.

‘Holler’ was recorded and mixed by Bywater Call  drummer Bruce McCarthy at his studio, The Beat Farm in Toronto, Canada.  The new single follows the 2023 releases of singles ‘Sweet Maria’ and ‘For All We Know’, that received rave reviews from UK, Europe, and North America.

‘Sweet Maria’, an uplifting New Orleans romp, and ‘For All We Know’, a rootsy hymn of redemption and self-recognition, along with Holler will appear on Bywater Call’s forthcoming third studio album, set to be released worldwide Summer 2024.

Often transcending genres, Bywater Call is known for their dynamic, emotional live shows, featuring powerful vocals and exciting interplay between all band members.

Bywater Call’s music is an exploration of life’s highs and lows.  From intimate ballads that lay bare the complexities of human emotion to electrifying anthems that demand to be played at full volume.

Their catalogue is a journey through human experience, incorporating influences from The Band, The Wood Brothers, Tedeschi Trucks Band, Otis Redding, Little Feat, Sly and the Family Stone, among others.

Tickets for their October tour are available at The Gig Cartel.
