December 5th 2015- 2 guests…BAHAMAS-Afie Jurvanen & Andy White

Two very special guests today

Bahamas

In Hour One – Bahamas – also known as Afie Jurvanen.  He so didn’t like his name and the way people mispronounced it – at 5 he asked his Mother if he could change his name to KEVIN!!

Afie Jurvanen is the  Canadian guitarist- singer/songwriter who  distinguished himself as a sideman in the band of Leslie Feist.

When he started his own solo career he took the stage name Bahamas because people could say and remember that.

His first two albums 2009’s Pink Strat and 2012’s Barchords  were critical successes, and best of all  Jurvanen is signed to Brushfire Records, the American boutique label run by Jack Johnson who knows talent when he hears it.

His latest LP Afie is Bahamas is filled with catchy songs and wonderful turns of phrase.

He showed up at the Roundhouse Radio studios in Vancouver with his wife and their  baby in a Stoller.

Josie (thee dog) and I welcomed them.

Our second guest in hour two is Andy White.

Born in Belfast as “the troubles” unfolded..he credits his Liberal upbringing with not getting pulled into the nasty religious battles.

He grew up with Belfasts rocking punk scene..he talks about The Clash and all the great bands.

Picked up a guitar and off he went..

To Dublin where he begasn to get noticed.

Shared a house and stages with Liam O’Manley (Hot House Flowers) Tim Finn ..they formed a band called ALT.

But its here and now we talk about .  He has a very good album called How Things Are.

Touches of Lennon (there’s a song he does called Lennon)

We talk about Steven Fearing his partner in Fearing and White.

So..its Andy White in studio with me at Roundhouse Radio Vancouver..in conversation and performance.

I really like the man and his music. I think it shows.
