Bahamas - "Already Yours"

A reader today turned me on to Bahamas—the project of Toronto's Afie Jurvanen, who has spent time in touring bands for both Feist and Jason Collett. After five years of writing and collecting songs, Jurvanen released his debut, Pink Strat, last summer. Named after the songwriter's childhood guitar, the record plays with an intimate and straightforward simplicity that emphasizes two of folk music's most important elements: storytelling and personality. That subtle but sharp personality comes through especially with the tasteful cover of Wreckless Eric's "Whole Wide World" and the clever finger-picked single, "Already Yours."
