Still working on that hot first release.



Afie Jurvanen, aka Bahamas, spent two weeks in the winter of 2008 making his debut album, Pink Strat. It is named after his childhood guitar, which he still plays. In addition, he plays bass, drums, piano, various percussion, organ, slide, acoustic, and nylon string guitars on the album, and is joined by his friends from zeus, The Great Lake Swimmers, and Feist on a few of the tracks.

Jurvanen and his roommate at the time, Robbie Lackritz (Jamie Lidell, Feist) recorded Pink Strat in a cabin in rural Ontario, with an emphasis on simplicity. Many of the songs were saved up over a period of 5 years of touring as part of Jason Collett's band, and then Feist's band. Similar to an old John Hammond or JJ Cale recording, the production is straight-forward, simple, and full of character--highlighting the storytelling and quaintness of the performances.
