Get to know Bahamas


Afie Jurvanen records and plays concerts under the name Bahamas. He sometimes plays solo, but mostly he tours with Jason Tait (Winnipeg,MB) on the drum set and two singers, Felicity Williams (Toronto, ON) and Carleigh Aikins. (Barrie, ON.) Some think it odd that there is no traditional “bass” player, but few have stepped forward to complain. Afie’s guitar is rumored to have once belonged to Link Wray and has been described as having a “huge sound.” Pink Strat, Bahamas debut album was released in 2009 and Brushfire has made that album available in the US, and is putting out a brand new album called Bar Chords in February of 2012.
