Afie Jurvanen has been making waves recently with his latest record, Bahamas is Afie. A stellar live musician out of Canada, the album the artist has been bringing to thousands through Canada and beyond over the last 12 months is basically what it says on the bill. Performing as Bahamas, Jurvanen has been blending some excellent pop and indie folk with some well-crafted upbeat rocky melodies that have been striking the right chord with growing crowd numbers around festivals and headline dates to match. This month sees Bahamas bring his full band to Australia for the first time, though it's not his first time in our backyard - he was last in the country supporting old mate City and Colour a few years ago.
