Bahamas is the musical pseudonym for Alfie Jurvanen, a Toronto musician who's spent the past couple of years playing piano and guitar with Feist's band. He's also made appearances, live and on record, with a bevy of Toronto's heaviest hitting indie bands including Great Lake Swimmers, Zeus and Hayden.
The latter of those collaborators seems to be the closest thing to Jurvanen's own musical adventures on display on this, his debut album.
Feist and Zeus reciprocate in the studio, as does head Golden Dog Dave Azzolini. But their help is heard more in the back rather than the foreground on Pink Strat, as Jurvanen eschews what could have easily been a Toronto all-star rave up in lieu of a more subdued album that puts him at centre stage.
