Published Jul 06, 2009It's been covered by the Monkees, Proclaimers, and the Super Friendz. Now Toronto's Afie Jurvanen takes a trip across Eric Goulden's mid-'70s hit, "(I'd Go the) Whole Wide World," applying his sleepy, soulful voice to a simplistic but catchy pop song.
Having spent the past few years playing guitar in Feist's band, Jurvanen's earned the respect of his peers with his tasteful, intricate musicianship, displayed most prominently in his band Paso Mino. After some time backing Jason Collett, Paso Mino became Zeus without him while Feist continues to keep Jurvanen plenty busy, exploring the world and a new stratosphere of success. On some downtime, he's emerged with a new solo project called Bahamas, and is releasing a full album called Pink Strat on July 21.
