Bon Iver          

Grammy Award-Winning Indie Folk Band Created By Justin Vernon

Bon Iver is an indie-folk band founded in 2006 by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon.

Vernon released Bon Iver's debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago, independently in July 2007. The majority of that album was recorded while Vernon spent three months isolated in a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin.

In 2012 the band won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album for their eponymous album Bon Iver. They released their third album 22, A Million to critical acclaim in 2016, which was followed by their fourth album i,i in 2019.

The name "Bon Iver" derives from the French phrase "bon hiver" ("good winter"), taken from a greeting on Northern Exposure.

As their career has continued, Bon Iver has become known for being sonically diverse and experimental, moving from the largely acoustic setting of For Emma to a more diverse and electronic soundscape.
