Bahamas, the easy-going alias of Toronto-based singer/songwriter Afie Jurvanen, recently released his first LP in four years, Earthtones. Largely recorded in a compact, three-day session, Jurvanen found himself joined by drummer James Gadson and bassist Pino Palladino, who separately have supported the likes of Beck and John Mayer, and together played alongside D'Angelo for his superlative comeback album, Black Messiah. The inclusion of the Vanguard members illuminates the grounded qualities that have always always been just beneath the surface of Bahamas' breezy music.

"I wrote songs about having success, having kids, and having depression. I wrote songs about going on tour, going back in time and going in circles. I wrote songs about my other worldly wife, my jerk dad and my garbage relationship with my brother. Crazy right?!

"It's a very positive album about having a joie de vivre for the joys of life. Okay, full disclosure... there's a few slow jams too...

"Hope you enjoy the music as much as I enjoyed making it."

Bahamas stepped into the spotlight with his debut album Pink Strat (2009), which was nominated for both a JUNO Award and the Polaris Music Prize. Barchords (2011) was named Best Singer/Songwriter Album of 2012 by iTunes, earned him another Polaris Music Prize nod and two JUNO Award nominations, including Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year, as well as U.S. television appearances on "Conan" and a collaboration with k.d. lang. 2014's Bahamas is Afie debuted at #4 in Canada upon its release and garnered rave reviews across borders; it won JUNOs for Adult Alternative Album of the Year and Songwriter of the Year.

Bedouine has a sound. Sixties folk meets seventies country-funk with a glimmer of bossa nova cool. Lithe guitar picking and precise lyrical excursions. That mesmerizing voice and phrasing.

Bedouine, a gallicized riff on bedouin, the nomad, the wanderer. Anyone can assume such a name, but Azniv Korkejian has an experience of what it means, the type of ground it covers. "Moving around so much caused me at some point to feel displaced, to not really belong anywhere and I thought that was a good title." Her development was shaped by political landscapes and family opportunities, her adult life patterned by paths of her own. Born in Aleppo, Syria to Armenian parents, Korkejian spent her childhood in Saudi Arabia, moving to America when her family won a Green Card lottery. They settled in Boston, then Houston, but she split for L.A. as soon as she could.
