Brisbane Festival presents


24 Sep
Arcadia - The Spiegeltent

Afie Jurvanen isn’t from the Bahamas. He’s a Finnish-Canadian from rural Ontario. But since 2009 he’s been writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles.

Join this multi-JUNO and Polaris Music Prize nominee as he brings in a little bit of the Caribbean direct from Canada.

His new album, Bahamas is Afie, is the next step in the evolution of Jurvanen's songcraft, guitar mastery, and melodic pop hooks – great arrangements of strings, brass, winds, orchestral percussion and chamber choruses that transport the listener from moving seas, to a search for strength, to a place of resolve and comfort.

“A masterpiece and my favorite for album of the year.” (Paste)
