Bahamas is the stage name of Afie Jurvanen and right now he's sitting on what is likely the most-anticipated Canadian album of early 2018. For Earthtones, Jurvanen recorded with some of the best musicians working on the continent — people who normally play with neo-soul icon D'Angelo. He'll preview new tracks from the album and talk about its surprisingly dark themes.
