Biography

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 snow belt to the ... Read more in Amazon's Bahamas Store

Editorial Reviews

The new release, Bahamas Is Afie, is the first self-produced album from the Ontario-based musician. With this record he pursued a far more complex sound than on prior releases and is responsible for the majority of the instrumentation. The album follows 2011's Barchords, which was praised for being a reserved yet melodically rewarding exploration of relationships and heartache by The New Yorker. SPIN recently premiered the first pre-release track from the album, All The Time, saying Bahamas distills his brand of breezy soul...with summer-ready falsetto harmonies that float over a distorted riff, before ending with a quick solo, a move that reminds this laidback Canuck can shred.

Pink Strat still remains my favorite Bahamas album. This album is super good though. I gave ti four stars because I would give Pink Strat 5. You can tell that the artist has grown musically and incorporates a lot more into his music in terms of the sound. Lyrically the songs can be very engaging. I can interpret a lot of the songs to have meaning or be applicable to my own life. Like all of Bahamas music there is a lot of guitar. I bought this album because I buy everything the man puts out. But the singles, per usual, grabbed my attention before the album was released and really goaded me into getting the MP3 version of the album. I was not surprised, as I have come to expect this, to find that I enjoy a lot of other songs more than the singles that initially grabbed my attention. If you like Bahamas, buy this album. If you've never heard of the guy, try Pink Strat as well.

I was not immediately a fan of all songs on this album even though I've loved Banahas' first two albums, but after a couple run throughs I was hooked. Bahamas keep turning out the hits and we were able to catch a live show of theirs in Chicago shortly after this release...unreal. If you like their last two albums, you're sure to love this one as well.

He did it again!! I think the thing I like the best about this album is that it's just different enough. He didn't try to go too far from why we all love his music. Absolutely a great collection and Afie is quickly becoming one of my all time favorite artists! Thank you so much!
