Review By Darren McIntyre

Bywater Call are a powerhouse 7 piece southern soul, roots rock band from Toronto, Canada. In 2023 the band played 96 shows in 10 countries, 89 cities, 19 US States & 3 Canadian Provinces and performed a live stream for famed German TV Show Pockpalast. Thy have performed on Joe Bonamassa’s Keeping The Blues Alive cruise, Meghan & Dave opened for Southern California Rockers Robert Jon & The Wreck on their sold out European Tour. The band brought us  their first new release of 2024 in the form of Holler and follow that with this absolute banger As If , settle in and grab a cold one as I take us on the journey with this celebrated Southern Soul, Roots Rock outfit from Toronto, Canada.

As If – A funky pounding rhythm section gets this colossal track off the ground as we get a fantastic horn section that is wrapping itself around this absolute banger of a track. The Hammond style keys are littered throughout this funk laden foot stomping rock n roll blues assault that allows Meghan to bring her powerhouse vocals to this classy blues laden funkadelic monster as the tempo changes course and lets the horn section take over and let us flow freely through the mid section as a stellar guitar lick kicks in the doors with a crisp, slick swagger that just catches us by surprise. The incredible vocals are building and building as Meghan comes at us in waves and brings delicious tones that wet our appetites for when they visit our shores later this year.
