Afie Jurvanen, better known as Bahamas, is a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie, Ontario. His newest album, Earthtones (2018) makes a pronounced shift from neo-folk balladeer to sultry indie soul man. Eschewing the acoustic-guitar framework of earlier outings for sinuous, minimalist R&B vamps, he maintains an intimate vibe while considerably amping up the groove quotient. His previous album, Bahamas Is Afie, was released in 2014 on Brushfire Records/Universal to critical acclaim and won him Juno Awards for Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year and followed his previous full-lengths Pink Strat (2009) and Barchords (2011).
Bahamas has toured with the likes of Jack Johnson, and has appeared on festivals world wide from Bonaroo to Austin City Limits music festival.
