Single I Bywater Call – Holler


Canadian Roots, Rock, and Soul band Bywater Call are excited to release HOLLER, their first single of 2024

The release comes just over a month before the band heads out for their Spring 2024 European Tour. Dates listed below..

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

From guitarist Dave Barnes’ haunting first notes on resonator guitar, alongside Meghan’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 drummer Bruce McCarthy at his studio “The BeatFarm” in Toronto.

The release of Holler follows the 2023 releases of singles Sweet Maria and For All We Know, which 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 highly anticipated 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.
