    Go here to stream Bahamas' "I Got You Babe," from Barchords, out Feb. 7 via Brushfire Records.

    It's the band's sophomore set.

    Bahamas is a moniker for Afie Jurvanen (pronounced AY-fee), a highly sought after musician who spent three years as a guitarist/pianist for Feist, as well as many others.

    The 12 songs on Barchords defy simple categorization. Juvanen's vocal delivery and masterful playing create a distinctive sound that is both subtle and intense. His soulful folk features sparse arrangements where the space is as powerful as the performance. Jurvanen possesses a unique gift for restraint that accentuates the impact of his songs. He does this while incorporating an array of styles, yet always maintaining his own.

    Get a look at the recording of Barchords and album track "Lost in the Light" by going here.
