Bahamas is the stage name of Afie Jurvanen, born 1981 in Toronto, Canada. He has worked with many famous musicians including; The Lumineers, City and Colour and Jack Johnson. His first album was released in 2009 titled Pinks Strat. I truly think he has a very unique sound and you will never hear another artist like him! Enjoy!

I’ve paired these artists together as they often work very closely with each other and have a similar style of music with Theo Katzaman actually being a member of Vulfpeck. Vulfpeck is an american funk group which was formed in 2011 and have actually performed at Madison Square Garden! Theo Katzman is an american multi-instrumentalist from Los Angeles, California.
