Biography

Decamping to his father's cabin in the middle of the north Wisconsin woods after the break-up of a long term relationship, Justin Vernon drew on the wilderness of his surroundings and poured out his heart into song. Three months of hunting, cold weather and rural isolation resulted in cathartic self-therapy and the stark debut album 'For Emma, Forever Ago' (2008). Using a misspelling of bon hiver (French for good winter) as a pseudonym, he self-released 500 copies of the album before being picked up by indie label Jagjaguwar.

Led by the fragile, folky honesty of tracks like 'Skinny Love' and 'For Emma', the album received a positive critical response and was named Album of the Year by Observer Music Monthly magazine. The follow-up EP 'Blood Bank' was released in 2009 and made it to number 16 in the US Billboard Charts. 'Bon Iver' was released in 2011 and gave the band their first Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. Following a lengthy hiatus, the band released their third studio album, '22, a Million', which received a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Music Album. They released their fourth studio album, 'I,I', in August 2019.
