Port of Call is a male/female folk pop duo (Evan Aucoin of Bay de Verde and Casandra Abbott) that relies heavily on sparse instrumentation, strong vocal harmonies, and sweet melodies to create a sound all their own. They are inspired and influenced by such groups as The Civil Wars, The Head and the Heart, Swell Season, and Whitehorse to name a few. In the last two and a half …years, Port of Call have worked tirelessly, performing at various venues in St. John’s as well as across the province at such festivals as The Gathering, Eat the Hill, and Roots, Rants and Roars Festivals. In 2014, readers of St. John’s based arts and culture magazine The Overcast, voted Port of Call the city’s best musical duo beating out several other prominent acts. In 2014, the band also won the right to attend and perform at Canadian Music Week in Toronto. During this conference, Port of Call played two showcases at established venues in Toronto, with both showcases being well received by the local crowd.
On July 17, 2014 the band released their debut EP Darkness and Light, which has gone to sell out three separate runs of the CD. The duo is currently working on their first full length album and will be releasing new music as early as the Fall of 2016, with an album release slated for Spring 2017.
