Bon Iver

Bon Iver is a US indie folk band started by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon. Other members of Bon Iver include Michael Noyce, Sean Carey and Matthew McCaughan.

The band has quickly established themselves on the indie rock scene and have already picked up one of the most prestigious awards – two Grammys for Best new Artist and Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album.

Justin Vernon was previously in a band called DeYarmond Edison which split up. It was then he moved to Wisconsin where he became ill and watched a nature program and in his condition, coined the name Bon Iver from a misspelling. He decided to press some CDs himself and sent them out to get reaction from music blogs and websites and was noticed by indie label Jagjaguwar and promptly signed.

The original Bon Iver set-up had the original band members, but it was only after the release of their first attempt For Emma, Forever Ago (2008) that they decided to incorporate additional band-members: Rob Moose on violin and guitar (Antony and the Johnsons, The National), Mike Lewis on bass (Andrew Bird, Happy Apple), and a horn section including Reginald Pace, Colin Stetson (Tom Waits, Arcade Fire) and C.J. Camerieri (Rufus Wainwright, Sufjan Stevens).

Bon Iver received critical acclaim for their debut album from leading music magazines and it was placed in the top albums of ‘2000s by respected music websites alike. Their single “Skinny Love” did well across UK, US and Australia and other singles from the album used in many TV programs across the globe, raising Bon Iver’s presence on the music scene.

In 2011, Bon Iver released their second eponymous album which number one on all three US Billboard Charts: Alternative Albums, Independent Albums and Rock Albums. It reached number four in the UK Album Chart.
