The double-Juno winning artist heads out on tour
The Juno-winning Canadian indie artist aka Afie Jurvanen is heading out on tour in support of his latest LP, Sad Hunk, an album which fuses many genres together including funk and folk. His sound is hard to pin down, as his music incorporates part smooth jams, part psychedelic rock, part adult contemporary, and part folk, not out of place at a cosy campfire.
Having provided support for artists such as Jack Johnson and Fiest, Bahamas has proved himself as a consummate performer, and on his fall tour will himself be supported by John K. Samson. Whilst not touring or recording his own material Jurvanen also composes radio theme tunes, the most recent of which, was the theme music for CBC Radio's q.
A self-taught guitarist, Jurvanen recorded his debut album, Pink Strat, in 2008 whilst staying in a cabin in rural Ontario. A savvy social media artist, Jurvanen is credited with creating eclectic videos such as his recent release Bitter Memories, as well as keeping a close bond with his followers, as can be seen on his recent Australian tour. Watch out for this guy!
