Bahamas

Canadian songwriter/musician BAHAMAS (Afie Jurvanen) has announced Bootcut, his sixth studio album and the follow-up to his JUNO Award-winning 2020 release Sad HunkBootcut, available everywhere on September 15, features classic Jurvanen musicianship and songcraft; however, this time, he leans into his country-music influences with all the wit, bizarro guitar solos, and the ever-so-clever storytelling that filters time-honoured themes through a distinctly modern lens.

Recorded at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium by Grammy-nominated producer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Peach Pit) and Dan Knobler (Allison Russell, Rodney Crowell), Jurvanen was surrounded by a dream team band that includes iconic Country artist (and current Eagle) Vince Gill on guitar, pedal-steel maestro Russ Pahl (Kenny Rogers, Sturgill Simpson), Tennessee Three bassist Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins), harmonica great Mickey Raphael (Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow), mandolin master Sam Bush (Dolly Parton, Linda Ronstadt), keyboardist Jen Gunderman (Willie Nelson, The Jayhawks), and drummer Jon Radford (Brendan Benson, Justin Townes Earle).
