Harry Nilsson famously sang, "One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do." For Gabe Dixon, one is quite possibly the most liberating number. On his debut solo album, One Spark (Fantasy/Concord Music Group) Dixon flexes a newfound muscularity in tone and texture -- delivering the most personal and rewarding music of his young career.

Afie Jurvanen isn't from the Bahamas. He's a Finnish-Canadian from Barrie--a working class town in rural Ontario. But his chosen epithet is fitting. Since 2009 he's been making music under the name Bahamas--writing songs about sunsets, love affairs, and making out with crooked smiles. Through simple arrangements, he charts an escape route from the snow belt to the coral reefs. His new album, Bahamas Is Afie, will be released August 19, 2014 on Brushfire Records/Universal.
