Introspective, alternative-indie artist Bahamas will take the stage at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Saturday, October 16, 2021 with special guest Sam Weber.
“Sad Hunk”, the fifth album from Bahamas, gets its’ title from a nickname his wife came up with in reaction to how he was being portrayed in the media. In pictures from a photo shoot, he was lit half in shadow, looking all brooding and mysterious. The nickname became a joke among their friends.
It’s a fitting backstory for an album that embodies an undaunted self-awareness. Each track is graced with Bahamas’s wry wit and unabashed heart. In sketching Sad Hunk’s delicately composed batch of songs, Jurvanen drew much inspiration from his home life and all the joy and struggle that comes with building a family together.
The award-winning singer/songwriter otherwise known as Afie Jurvanen, created “Sad Hunk” with Christine Bougie (guitar), Don Kerr (drums), Mike O’Brien (bass), and Felicity Williams (vocals). It also features the graceful guitar work of Sam Weber, a virtually unknown musician whom Jurvanen discovered on YouTube.
