      To whom it may concern,Re: BAHAMAS EARTHTONESEarthtones is the newest and totally most best album yet from Bahamas, aka me, Afie Jurvanen.I wasn't feeling too inspired in 2016. Id been in a seemingly unbroken cycle of recording and touring for 6years. I know, you're saying to yourself "that's so clich, all musicians complain about being tired..." Butwait, there's more!Not knowing exactly what type of album to make, I was feeling pretty low. But at that very moment, mylongtime manager and confidante Robbie Lackritz called and said "dude, you should make an album withD'angelo's rhythm section." And just like that, the juices were flowing and the songs started coming.I wrote songs about having success, having kids, and having depression. I wrote songs about going ontour, going back in time and going in circles. I wrote songs about my other worldly wife, my jerk dad andmy garbage relationship with my brother. Crazy right?!In Sept of 2016 I flew to Los Angeles and spent three days in the studio with the bass boss Pino Palladinoand the titan of time keeping, Mr. James Gadson. No rehearsals, no charts, no rules. We worked fast andcame away with 10 songs that sounded fresh and strange and warm and free of any genre. The resultswere so inspiring to me that I quickly pulled my road band (Felicity Williams, Christine Bougie, DarcyYates, Jason Tait, Don Kerr) into a Prague studio to record a few more songs. And here's the bestpart...the whole thing is produced by my longtime producer and confidante Robbie Lackritz, so you knowthe sound is correct, totally modern and completely familiar at the same time.Whoa!I know! You're saying to yourself "wait what? The same Robbie from earlier??"Yes! It's a story about friendship come full circle, and how great it is to have someone in your life that canlift you up when you're feeling down.Its a very positive album about having a joie de vivre for the joys of life.Okay, full disclosuretheres a few slow jams tooHope you enjoy the music as much as I enjoyed making it.Look forward to speaking with some of you soon (you know who you are.) hahaSincerely,Afie Jurvanenps. see below for super important stats about awards, sales, streaming and all that business stuff that youprobably see all the time.-Multiple Juno award nominations-Juno wins for Songwriter of the Year and Adult Alt Album of the year 2015-A streaming juggernaut who averages over 1.6 million monthly streaming listeners, All The Timegenerated a staggering 32 million streams and counting as Stronger Than That cracked 9 million.- Dont even get me started on Lost in the Light..- So far 0.00 users on Tidal.- Received an honorary high school diploma from Barrie Central Collegiate in 2016.- Successfully landed a kickflip in front of Jack Johnson, earning a right on dude.- Afie is currently planning on winning the polaris prize in 2018 and he would appreciate it if the Junoscould change their rules about landed immigrants and just give Robbie one already.- Other cool stuff that Robbie can tell you about.
