A New Sound for Bahamas, A New Journey for Tim Baker

Afie Jurvanen, who performs as Bahamas, sent out a message in his January/18 LP release, Earthtones: “If there was now an opportunity for me to reach out to him, I’d say ‘You’re an asshole, but I love you anyway.’ And we can build on that,” he told Exclaim!

The song in question, “Bad Boys Need Love Too,” is a message to his father, who didn’t participate in Jurvanan’s youth. Now a father himself, Jurvanan understands even more so how important a father is to his children.

Jeremy Fisher’s Kids’ Album: Highway to Spell

Jeremy Fisher, a two-time Juno Award nominee for adult music, became a first-time father in early 2016, and the child-sized guitar that hangs in his kitchen became a go-to for soothing a fussy baby or entertaining a bunch of kids on a play date.

Stone Temple Pilots on Tour With Front Man Jeff Gutt

It’s been almost a year to date since Stone Temple Pilots unveiled their new lead singer, Jeff Gutt, at the Troubadour in Los Angeles. After two iconic lead singers whose lives ended tragically, the new front man would have big shoes to fill. The search for Gutt, though, was thankfully anything but tragic.

Stone Temple Pilots had begun an online search roughly a year before they announced Gutt’s name that was progressing rather poorly: The musicians had spent over 100 hours reviewing submissions before they had chanced upon their future lead singer, according to The Advocate. The person had a tall order to fill, though: STP didn’t want someone who could just sing: they needed a collaborator, someone who could also write with them and work alongside the iconic group in the studio.
