Meghan Parnell and David Barnes are the driving force behind Bywater Call, a powerhouse 7-piece ensemble based in Toronto, ON. Influenced by Southern-soul, Americana and roots-rock, they are creating a fresh and new sound of the blues.
Since Bywater Call was formed in 2017, they have been Maple Blues and Independent Blues Award nominated and have made waves in the Canadian Festival Circuit. The band has also had the opportunity to tour Europe twice, including most recently in May and June of 2022, featuring a MainStage appearance at the Netherlands’ premiere blues festival MOULIN BLUES. Performances there have been praised in Dutch and German media, with references to Meghan as one of the best singers in blues and roots today.
