Bahamas To Release Selections From Celebrated “Live To Tape” Series Via EPs, Singles & Vinyl

Just ahead of his Sad and Solo Tour, Afie Jurvanen, aka Bahamas, will be releasing select highlights from his celebrated Live To Tape collaboration series in the form of digital EPs, singles and a special vinyl edition.

The first digital EP highlighting the Nashville sessions is titled Live To Tape Volume I and will be released on October 8th. Volume I features performances with Grammy Award winners The 400 Unit and other performances with the Secret Sisters backed by legendary Nashville musicians Gene Chrisman (Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson), Dave Roe (Johnny Cash, Sturgill Simpson) and Russ Pahl (Kacey Musgraves, Glen Campbell). The EP was produced and mixed by Grammy-nominated producer/engineer Robbie Lackritz (Feist, Jack Johnson, The Weather Station) in fully immersive 7.1.4 Dolby Atmos (where available) and is mixed so that the listener will be in the center of the band, with all band members in a circle surrounding them. The first song from the EP “I Got You Babe” (with The 400 Unit) is now available across streaming platforms. Listen to the audio/watch the video HERE. See the upcoming release schedule below.

Created during the height of the pandemic, Live To Tape captures Bahamas performing in studio from Halifax, Nova Scotia with acclaimed artists performing with Bahamas remotely from Nashville, Los Angeles, Melbourne, Perth, Toronto and other locations. Other artists performing with Bahamas include Lucius, Australia’s Teskey Brothers, Madison Cunningham, Greensky Bluegrass, members of Dawes along with revered session musicians such as Nathan East (Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder), Steve Ferrone (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers), Gus Seyffert (Beck, Adele), Joey Waronker (REM, Atoms for Peace), Bob Glaub (Jackson Browne, Bob Dylan), Russ Kunkel (Joni Mitchell, John Lennon) and many more. Live to Tape has been featured on CBS Saturday Morning, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Rolling Stone and many other places.

The Globe and Mail have called Bahamas an “unassuming giant” of Canadian music, averaging over 3.5 million regular monthly listens on Spotify, with more than half a billion streams to date. His most recent release, Sad Hunk is on pace to be his fifth consecutive album to receive more than 100 million+ streams.

Sad Hunk received critical acclaim and won the 2021 JUNO Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year. While nominated for Best Engineered Album – Non-Classical at the 2019 Grammy Awards, his previous album Earthtones won Adult Alternative Album Of The Year and Video of the Year (“Depression,” directed by Ali Eisner) at the 2019 JUNO Awards. A seven-time JUNO nominee, Jurvanen also received this accolade for Bahamas Is Afie in 2015, when he was also named Songwriter Of The Year.
