His return to recording under the guise Bahamas is organic--a brew of classical folks strains interlaced with thoughtful storytelling.  Great voice, and a "penchant for dark and peculiar," this new artist creates music scented with the chill and cozy energy of the Bahamas, these acoustic-folk rhythms stick. From the album titled Pink Strat, download/listen to "Already Yours" and "Sunshine Blues," two acoustic-guitar tracks with a Southern soul spirit narrated by Afie's thoughtful vocals.
