Songwriter, musician, and self-described social media influencer Bahamas (Afie Jurvanen), returns to North American stages this winter with today's announcement of a 37-city-stop STILL SAD TOUR, supporting his award-winning fifth full-length album, Sad Hunk.

The five-time JUNO Award winner took home the Adult Alternative Album of the Year award last week for Sad Hunk, making him the first to receive the accolade for three consecutive albums. He did so in 2015 for Bahamas Is Afie, when he was also named Songwriter Of The Year, and for Earthtones, which also won Video of the Year ("Depression," directed by Ali Eisner). Earthtones was also nominated for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical at the 2019 GRAMMY Awards.

The Globe and Mail have called Bahamas an "unassuming sensation," with over 3.5 million regular monthly listeners on Spotify alone and more than half a billion streams to date. Sad Hunk is on pace to be his fifth consecutive album to receive more than 100 million streams.

Over the past year, the internationally renowned touring artist has reinvented how he collaborates live with the popular YouTube series Live To Tape. A series that has seen him perform remotely from studios in Nova Scotia, connected to studios worldwide with backing bands consisting of Bob Glaub and Russ Kunkel, Jason Isbell's 400 Unit, Dawes, and rhythm sections for Roger Waters, Jackson Browne, Adele, Beck, REM, and more.

The final episode in the series premiered this past weekend and features Madison Cunningham, who supports the Still Sad Tour in Western Canada, Heartbreaker Steve Ferrone, and Nathan East, the duo best known as Eric Clapton's rhythm section for his MTV Unplugged sessions. Additionally, Ferrone and East have been heard backing Tom Petty, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Daft Punk, and George Harrison, to name only a few.

Named after Mr. Jack Singer ($1.5M contribution from his sons, Alan and Stephen Singer), the concert hall is also the home of the Carthy Organ donated by the Carthy Foundation in the amount of $750,000 in memory of Mrs. Margaret Mannix. Suspended high above the stage is a laminated, 185,000-pound (90-ton) spruce-wood acoustical canopy that can be raised or lowered to tune the hall according to the specific needs of each performer.

Over its 32 year life, Jack Singer Concert Hall has undergone many upgrades to ensure that it remains a state-of-the-art performance hall, including a new million dollar sound system with state-of-the-art hearing assistance in 2004, a complete replacement of all its analog sound boards in 2014, and the full replacement of all of its seats, in 2017.
