Editors’ Notes

Singer/guitarist Afie Jurvanen has been a sideman for indie luminaries like Feist, Jason Collett, and Howie Beck, but his solo work under the moniker of Bahamas offers a breezy, sure-handed blend of sun-kissed folk and alt-country. Jurvanen’s promise as a songwriter was established on two tasteful, JUNO-nominated full-length releases—2009’s Pink Strat and 2012’s Barchords—which held evocative turns of phrase, restrained instrumentation, and a captivating repose. From the silvery acoustic strum and poetic images that open “Waves” to the glowing final chords of “All I’ve Ever Known,” the songwriter’s third full-length endeavour is stunning. Using more acoustic instruments than any of his previous work, Bahamas Is Afie allows Jurvanen’s exquisite songwriting to speak for itself without excessive ornamentation—“Bitter Memories,” “Like a Wind,” and “Nothing to Me Now” are all sublime, elegantly uncluttered highlights. When things get more elaborate—as with the harmonised rush of strings and woodwinds that give “Can’t Take You with Me” deep poignancy, or the R&B-inflected falsetto of “All the Time”—Bahamas Is Afie is every bit the intimate, existential artistic statement that its title implies.

Cozy

Bahamas makes the coziest, winterish, hot chocolate albums, and I feel like this record will follow that trend

Can't put it down

Saw these guys with JJ in LA last fall, instantly obsessed. Looks like another great performance comin our way. Already wore out the 2 pre-released songs

Hidden gem is the Bahamas

Great original music. Keeps coming with their own unique style and sound. Can't go wrong.

Bahamas is the solo project of Toronto-based guitarist and musical gun-for-hire Afie Jurvanen. With a carefully trained ear for melody that he's honed during his time playing with the likes of Feist and Howie Beck, Jurvanen's solo project has a stripped-down and contemplative sound that focuses on doing more with less, allowing his voice and guitar to do most of the heavy lifting on his quiet indie folk meditations. Bahamas made its album debut in 2009 with Pink Strat, which was nominated for a Juno...
