“I look at Beck or someone like that — that would be a modern guy who’s making lots of different types of music and he’s still himself through all of it. Since 2014’s double-Juno-winning Bahamas Is Afie, he and his wife, Naomi, have had two children. For someone who seems to have everything, Jurvanen speaks to humanity’s shared existential crisis through his new album, Sad Hunk.
“Don’t try being someone else,” says Jurvanen.
It’s nice to have my rubber arm twisted a little bit and it’s been a realization for me that I can use it as a vehicle to make more art, connect with people and just have the fun of coming up with ideas for videos and content.”.
“But it feels really good to say those things. There are moments on Bahamas is Afie that sound like they drifted in from a rose-coloured 1970s California, moments that unapologetically skirt the edges of “yacht rock” and “adult contemporary” in a manner that’s not at all icky. A collaboration from same team as 2018's Earthtones (Christine Bougie/Don Kerr/Mike O'Brien/Felicity Williams). However, his album highlight, “Half Your Love,” is the product of his first co-write. The record’s easygoing blend … “Whereas, if you do something that feels natural, it allows you to build an audience over time.”. Nick Drake comes to mind when the strings come in — and they come in a few times on the new album — while the music shares an easygoing quality with the likes of James Taylor that makes Bahamas’ presence on the roster of Jack Johnson’s Brushfire Records label not all that surprising.
His “to-the-point” songwriting cuts through flowery language with raw emotion. I don’t know that she is satisfied with any of them yet, but this is probably my best attempt yet. It points to a keen sense of humor that keeps Jurvanen humble, a pillar of his artistry. Jurvanen released his third album, Bahamas Is Afie on August 19, 2014. “I’m always trying to write a better love song for my wife. This locally-focused devotion complicates his relationship with social media and an ever-turning news-cycle delivering devastation around the clock. And that thing is always changing for me. Bahamas’ Afie Jurvanen is celebrating the launch of his soulful fourth album, Earthtones, with two rather unusual hometown release parties this week: an intimate Massey Hall gig where the entire audience of 200 will be joining the band onstage, and a kid-friendly free skating party at Harbourfront Centre.
 He won the awards in both categories.
One of the album’s most revealing moments, “Less Than Love” finds Jurvanen owning up to his anxiety about the ways he might fall short of his family’s expectations (“Everything that’s left unsaid/All the books I bought and never read/Thank god she can’t see into my head/She’d see I know nothing”). Downtown Music Publishing represents Bahamas songs. “Never in a million years would it have dawned on me to just stop doing everything and do nothing.”, While empathetically acknowledging the unmatched devastation this year brought to many around the world, the artist feels grateful for the grounding experience of 2020. “Take whatever time is needed to determine why you have something that needs to be said. “Done Did Me No Good” and “Up With The Jones” feature signature up-tempo Bahamas style and harmonies that have garnered his cult following. The record is not as much a departure from, as it is an elevation of 2018’s Earthtones.
I’d like to play here.
Left to his own devices on Bahamas is Afie, he’s come up with a quirky hybrid of folk, country and soft-rock for which there are few readily available comparisons. Jurvanen received a nomination for Songwriter of the Year for the tracks "Be My Witness", "Caught Me Thinking", and "Lost in the Light".. Someone will ask me, ‘When are you playing in Toronto next?’ And I’ll be like, ‘Next year?
I enjoy that just as much as I enjoy travelling to Western Australia and playing some big music festival there too.”.
