Having recently taken home two 2015 JUNO Awards for Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year, Toronto's Bahamas returns to Halifax in support of his award-winning release Bahamas is Afie at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium on Tuesday, July 21.
Afie Jurvanen isn't from the Bahamas. He's a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie-a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he's been making music under the name Bahamas-writing songs about sunsets, love affairs and making out with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snowbelt to the coral reefs
Released in 2014 on Jack Johnson's Brushfire Records, Bahamas is Afie debuted at #4 in Canada and was followed by a successful sold out Canadian tour. A coming-of-age album - self-titled and self-produced - it is the next step in the evolution of Jurvanen's songcraft, guitar mastery, and melodic pop hooks. Following his previous full-lengths Pink Strat (2009) and Barchords (2011) Bahamas is Afie remains a sparse, moving, headphone album, complemented by a more developed arrangement of strings, brass, winds, orchestral percussion and chamber choruses that transport the listener from moving seas to a search for strength, to a place of resolve and comfort.
