Bahamas On Mountain Stage
Loading the player ...
The folk-rock band Bahamas
makes its first appearance on Mountain Stage
, recorded before a sold-out audience in Charleston, W.Va. Led by Finnish-Canadian singer, songwriter and guitarist Afie Jurvanen, Bahamas combines elements of classic rock and blue-eyed soul harmonies to create something evocative and beautiful. A precise and tasteful guitarist, Jurvanen previously spent months on the road playing alongside fellow Canadians Feist and Kathleen Edwards
. He told Mountain Stage
host Larry Groce that his solo projects are often predicated on his having time to do his own thing.
There's no bassist in Bahamas — just guitar, drums and vocals — but the band's sound is fleshed out perfectly by the sometimes wordless backing voices of Carleigh Aikins and Felicity Williams.
- "Lost In The Light"
- "Caught Me Thinkin'"
- "Never Again"
