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 coral reefs. His new album, Barchords, was released in 2012 to critical praise: "Barchords is a gorgeous, full-bodied recording that revels in spare but intensely flavorful textures. It's that delightfully rare kind of record that commands an instant replay.
