Don't be confused by Afie Jurvanen going by the stage name Bahamas — he isn't from a tropical location, even if his music does have some tropical influences. The Canadian musician has been making music in his hometown for years as a backing musician for the likes of Feist, Jason Collett and Zeus.

The release of his second album Barchords is showing Jurvanen off as a star in his own right with sold-out shows and a nomination for a Juno Award for Roots and Traditional Album of the Year.

Songs played: "Lost In The Light," "Caught Me Thinking," and "Already Yours"
