Bon Iver (/boʊn iːˈvɛər/) is an American indie folk band founded in 2006 by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon. Bon Iver_sentence_2

Vernon released Bon Iver's debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago, independently in July 2007. Bon Iver_sentence_3

The majority of that album was recorded while Vernon spent three months isolated in a cabin in western Wisconsin. Bon Iver_sentence_4

In 2012, the band won the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album for their eponymous album Bon Iver. Bon Iver_sentence_5

They released their third album 22, A Million to critical acclaim in 2016, which was followed by their fourth album i,i in 2019. Bon Iver_sentence_6

The name "Bon Iver" derives from the French phrase bon hiver (French pronunciation: ​[bɔn‿ivɛːʁ) ("good winter"), taken from a greeting on Northern Exposure. Bon Iver_sentence_7

It is pronounced "Bonn-ee-vair". Bon Iver_sentence_8

History Bon Iver_section_0

After the breakup of his band DeYarmond Edison, the ending of a relationship, and a bout with mononucleosis hepatitis, Vernon left Raleigh, North Carolina, and moved back to Wisconsin. Bon Iver_sentence_9

He spent the oncoming winter months at his father's cabin in Dunn County, Wisconsin. Bon Iver_sentence_10

According to Vernon, it was during this time that the "Bon Iver" moniker first entered his mind; while bedridden with mononucleosis, he began watching the 1990s TV series Northern Exposure on DVD. Bon Iver_sentence_11

One episode depicts a group of citizens in Alaska, where the show is set, emerging from their homes into the first snowfall of the winter and wishing one another bon hiver (pronounced [bɔn‿ivɛːʁ, French for "good winter"). Bon Iver_sentence_12

This was initially transcribed by Vernon as "boniverre"; however, when he learned of its proper French spelling, he elected not to use it, deciding "hiver" reminded him too much of liver, the site of his illness at the time. Bon Iver_sentence_13

2006–2010: For Emma, Forever Ago Bon Iver_section_1

Main article: For Emma, Forever Ago Bon Iver_sentence_14

Vernon did not intend to write or record any music during the time but rather to recuperate from the events of the previous year. Bon Iver_sentence_15

Eventually, however, a record began to evolve during this cathartic time of isolation. Bon Iver_sentence_16

He had recently finished helping the band The Rosebuds do some recording and had with him some basic recording gear when he made his move to the cabin in late 2006. Bon Iver_sentence_17

Vernon played all the instruments during recording and each song was heavily edited with a large number of overdubs. Bon Iver_sentence_18

Vernon wrote the lyrics for the album by recording a word-less melody and listening to the recording over and over while writing words according to the sound of the syllables of the melody. Bon Iver_sentence_19

In an interview, Vernon said, "Words like 'decision' and 'intention' aren't words that float in my head because I just went." Bon Iver_sentence_20

Vernon explains, "I left North Carolina and went up there because I didn't know where else to go and I knew that I wanted to be alone and I knew that I wanted to be where it was cold." Bon Iver_sentence_21

In another interview, Vernon describes what he used to record the album: "I had a very light set-up, a basic small recording set-up: a Shure SM57 and an old Silvertone guitar. Bon Iver_sentence_22

I had my brother drop off his old drums... some other small things—things I would make or find lying around." Bon Iver_sentence_23

The record was almost not released and was originally intended as a group of demos to be sent out to labels and potentially rerecorded. Bon Iver_sentence_24

But after getting very encouraging reactions from a number of his friends, Vernon decided to release the songs himself in their present state. Bon Iver_sentence_25

According to his manager Kyle Frenette, an initial run of 500 CDs were pressed. Bon Iver_sentence_26

The original CD release show took place at the House of Rock in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Bon Iver_sentence_27

Justin played an earlier "all-ages" show and an evening 21+ show to release the original pressing of the album in its card stock CD case. Bon Iver_sentence_28

Of the 500 copies issued, 17 were sent to press, mainly blogs. Bon Iver_sentence_29

The first significant attention the album received was from My Old Kentucky Blog in June 2007, after which point "it snowballed," according to manager Frenette. Bon Iver_sentence_30

Another further breakthrough came when, in October 2007, the album received a very positive review from influential indie internet publication Pitchfork. Bon Iver_sentence_31

That exposure in turn led to a performance the same month at the industry showcase festival CMJ Music Marathon. Bon Iver_sentence_32

The appearance attracted much label interest and Frenette later told HitQuarters that they subsequently spoke to various record companies, both independent and major. Bon Iver_sentence_33

Out of all of them they decided to sign with the indie Jagjaguwar because their ideals most resembled their own. Bon Iver_sentence_34

The signing was confirmed on October 29, 2007. Bon Iver_sentence_35

For Emma, Forever Ago was given an official release by Jagjaguwar. Bon Iver_sentence_36

Vernon has said that he will continue to make albums without engineers and producers because he is capable of doing it all himself. Bon Iver_sentence_37

Since being released by Jagjaguwar on February 19, 2008, For Emma, Forever Ago has garnered critical acclaim. Bon Iver_sentence_38

The album was released in the UK and Europe by iconic indie label 4AD on May 12, 2008. Bon Iver_sentence_39

When released in the UK, For Emma, Forever Ago received 5/5 and "Album of the Month" reviews in both Mojo and Uncut magazines. Bon Iver_sentence_40

It was the seventh highest rated album of 2008 on review aggregator site Metacritic, with accolades from publications including The Village Voice, The Hartford Courant and The A.V. Bon Iver_sentence_41 Club. Bon Iver_sentence_42

Pitchfork Media gave the album 29th place in its "The Top 200 Albums of 2000s" list, while Stereogum placed the album at 11 on its "Best Album of the '00s" list. Bon Iver_sentence_43

The digital download track "Skinny Love" was selected to be iTunes (UK) single of the week and was available for free during that time, as well as being featured as the track of the day on National Public Radio. Bon Iver_sentence_44

Bon Iver was ranked number 8 on's most-listened-to new music of 2008. Bon Iver_sentence_45

Bon Iver's For Emma, Forever Ago was ranked number 29 in Rolling Stone's list of the Top 50 Albums of 2008, and was also ranked number 92 on their list of the 100 Best Albums of the 2000s. Bon Iver_sentence_46

In an interview, Vernon said: "I'm really humbled by everything and am keeping things in perspective." Bon Iver_sentence_47

On May 19, 2008, "Blindsided" and "Flume" were featured in The CW series One Tree Hill. Bon Iver_sentence_48

On October 6, 2008, "Skinny Love" was featured in the NBC series Chuck (season 2, episode 3). Bon Iver_sentence_49

'Blindsided' also featured in 'Stairway To Heaven', the 12th episode of the 5th season of ABC's medical drama Grey's Anatomy. Bon Iver_sentence_50

On December 11, 2008, Bon Iver performed "Skinny Love" on the Late Show with David Letterman. Bon Iver_sentence_51

On January 26, 2009, "Skinny Love" was announced at No. Bon Iver_sentence_52

21 by the Australian national radio station Triple J in the annual Hottest 100 countdown of the previous year's best songs. Bon Iver_sentence_53

In July 2009, "Skinny Love" was announced at No. Bon Iver_sentence_54

92 in Triple J's Hottest 100 of All Time countdown. Bon Iver_sentence_55

Additionally, the track "Flume" has been used by the BBC to advertise their Jimmy McGovern-penned drama series The Street; the track "Blood Bank" (off the EP of the same name) was used in a 2009 episode of the NBC series Chuck (season 2, episode 18) and the track "Creature Fear" was used in another Chuck episode (season 2, episode 21); "Skinny Love" was featured in another episode of Chuck (season 2, episode 3), as well as in the ABC drama Grey's Anatomy; "The Wolves (Act I and II)" was used in the first season of United States of Tara, the film The Place Beyond the Pines as well as in the final scenes of the film Rust and Bone ; "Re:Stacks" was featured in the Fox drama House, as was "Flume" on May 16, 2011; "Re:Stacks" was also used for the closing sequence of the Silent Witness episode Death Has No Dominion, and "Woods" was used in the eighth episode of Skins' third series and appeared on the series 3 soundtrack. Bon Iver_sentence_56

In 2008 Bon Iver designed a T-shirt for the Yellow Bird Project, with all profits benefiting the Interval House women's shelter in Toronto, Ontario. Bon Iver_sentence_57

In October 2009, Bon Iver first appeared on the cover of the publication The Fader, in its 64th issue. Bon Iver_sentence_58

In 2009 Bon Iver, along with St. Vincent, contributed the song "Roslyn" to the New Moon soundtrack. Bon Iver_sentence_59

Bon Iver also contributed "Brackett, WI" to the AIDS benefit album Dark Was the Night produced by the Red Hot Organization. Bon Iver_sentence_60

In 2010, Bon Iver collaborated with Kanye West on the track "Lost in the World", which begins with a sample of the Bon Iver track "Woods". Bon Iver_sentence_61

Vernon also contributed vocals to the West tracks "Monster" and "Dark Fantasy", both featured on West's album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Bon Iver_sentence_62

Then, in March 2011, Justin Vernon performed at SXSW with GOOD Music. Bon Iver_sentence_63

This collaboration publicized him to a wider audience. Bon Iver_sentence_64

2011–2012: Bon Iver Bon Iver_section_2

Main article: Bon Iver (album) Bon Iver_sentence_65

Bon Iver was released on June 17, 2011. Bon Iver_sentence_66

On March 23, 2011, Justin Vernon told Rolling Stone that a follow-up of For Emma, Forever Ago would be released in December 2011. Bon Iver_sentence_67

The album is composed of 10 songs and takes a new musical direction: "I brought in a lot of people to change my voice — not my singing voice, but my role as the author of this band, this project," says Vernon, who hired well-known players like bass saxophonist Colin Stetson and pedal-steel guitarist Greg Leisz. Bon Iver_sentence_68

"I built the record myself, but I allowed those people to come in and change the scene." Bon Iver_sentence_69

The second album is described as an "ambitious musical departure" from the first. Bon Iver_sentence_70

Prior to the album's release, Vernon said that each song on the new album represents a place. Bon Iver_sentence_71

The song "Perth" was described as a "Civil War-sounding heavy metal song," the song "Minnesota, WI" was described as featuring "finger-picked guitars, double bass drums and distorted bass saxophone," and the closing song "Beth/Rest" would be "horn heavy." Bon Iver_sentence_72

The album was recorded in a remodeled veterinarian clinic in Fall Creek, Wisconsin, which was bought by Vernon and his brother in 2008. Bon Iver_sentence_73

It was converted into April Base Studios, built mainly over the defunct swimming pool attached to the clinic. Bon Iver_sentence_74

Vernon's reason for recording in the location was that "[it's] been a wonderful freedom, working in a place we built. Bon Iver_sentence_75

It's also only three miles from the house I grew up in, and just ten minutes from the bar where my parents met." Bon Iver_sentence_76

On April 20, Bon Iver announced details of the release through the official Jagjaguwar and 4AD websites. Bon Iver_sentence_77

The artwork for the album was also released, painted by the American artist Gregory Euclide. Bon Iver_sentence_78

Gregory also released two YouTube videos entitled the Making of Bon Iver Album Art. Bon Iver_sentence_79

Over one month before the album release date, the album was accidentally made available for purchase on the iTunes Music Store on May 23. Bon Iver_sentence_80

Apple removed the item from the store, but not before a handful of users were able to purchase and download it. Bon Iver_sentence_81

There was no comment from Apple, the artist, or his label. Bon Iver_sentence_82

However, the lyrics to the album were promptly uploaded to their record site. Bon Iver_sentence_83

In an interview on 89.3 The Current, front man Justin Vernon was questioned about current plans for the band and expressed their desire to take a break: Bon Iver_sentence_84

During the last performance of their 2012 tour in Dublin's The O2, Vernon announced that it was their last performance as a band, "... at least for a while..." At the time, these two events provoked speculation about whether this was a definite end to the band or simply a hiatus. Bon Iver_sentence_85

A representative for Bon Iver's label, Jagjaguwar, issued the statement, "They are just going off cycle after two very busy years on this record." Bon Iver_sentence_86

Josh Jackson reviewed Bon Iver for Paste, saying, "It retains the beautiful melancholy of For Emma, but in nearly every way, it's just more. Bon Iver_sentence_87

More layered, more diverse, more interesting. Bon Iver_sentence_88

He brings in collaborators to do what they do best, but never at the expense of his sound and vision. Bon Iver_sentence_89

It treads into new sonic directions without getting lost." Bon Iver_sentence_90

He gave the album a score of nine out of ten. Bon Iver_sentence_91

In an unfavorable review, Tim Sendra of AllMusic wrote, "[Vernon's] style comes off more like sub-Enya with a beard than a true studio wizard... For Emma, Pt. Bon Iver_sentence_92

2 would have been far more satisfying than this overblown debacle." Bon Iver_sentence_93

In late August 2011, critically acclaimed English post-dubstep musician and singer-songwriter James Blake uploaded a track called "Fall Creek Boys Choir" to his YouTube channel. Bon Iver_sentence_94

The track was a collaboration with Bon Iver. Bon Iver_sentence_95

It was released as the first single from Blake's EP Enough Thunder and was also included on the deluxe edition of his self-titled debut album. Bon Iver_sentence_96

On November 30, 2011, the band earned four nominations for the 54th Grammy Awards: Best New Artist, Best Alternative Music Album for their album Bon Iver, and both Song of the Year and Record of the Year for Holocene. Bon Iver_sentence_97

On December 15, 2011, awarded Bon Iver the number one album of 2011. Bon Iver_sentence_98

On February 12, 2012, Bon Iver won the Grammy for Best New Artist. Bon Iver_sentence_99

Bon Iver also won the Grammy for Best Alternative Album for Bon Iver, beating out Radiohead, Death Cab for Cutie, Foster the People and My Morning Jacket. Bon Iver_sentence_100

On February 15, a five-song studio session was released on YouTube, featuring Justin Vernon and Bon Iver drummer Sean Carey performing piano renditions of the tracks. Bon Iver_sentence_101

The recording took place at AIR Studio owned Lyndurst Hall in London, England. Bon Iver_sentence_102

2012–2018: Hiatus, Wish I Was Here, and 22, A Million Bon Iver_section_3

Main article: 22, A Million Bon Iver_sentence_103

On November 12, 2012, the band announced its intent to take a break from performing after the last event of its 2012 tour in Dublin. Bon Iver_sentence_104

Their label asserted that the band had not broken up. Bon Iver_sentence_105

On June 30, 2014, the band released a new song titled Heavenly Father, which was featured on the soundtrack of Zach Braff's film Wish I Was Here. Bon Iver_sentence_106

Bon Iver's song Woods was featured in the Bluecoats 2015 program Kinetic Noise, which was awarded a bronze medal at the Drum Corps International World Championships. Bon Iver_sentence_107

On July 18, 2015, the band played their first show in almost three years at the Eaux Claires Music Festival in Eau Claire, WI where they debuted two new songs, "666 ʇ" and "89". Bon Iver_sentence_108

Originally, both were slated to be on their next album, but only "666 ʇ" made it to the finished record. Bon Iver_sentence_109

Unreleased track "89" has been played occasionally since, soon becoming a fan favorite. Bon Iver_sentence_110

On November 18, 2015, the band announced a tour of Asia starting early 2016. Bon Iver_sentence_111

On July 22, 2016, a 22-second live stream was broadcast on the band's official Facebook page, accompanied by the caption '#22days'. Bon Iver_sentence_112

A short clip of previously unreleased music can be heard in the video, accompanied by an updated profile and cover photo. Bon Iver_sentence_113

On August 17, 2016, the band announced that their next album's title would be 22, A Million. Bon Iver_sentence_114

They also provided a track list of 10 songs and released lyric videos for two songs: "22 (OVER S∞∞N)" and "10 dEATh bREasT". Bon Iver_sentence_115

On August 29, 2016, the band released their lyric video for "33 "GOD"", the third single from the album. Bon Iver_sentence_116

22, A Million was indeed released on September 30, 2016. Bon Iver_sentence_117

It was noted by many as a large stylistic shift for the band. Bon Iver_sentence_118

One aspect of this shift included a drastic change in instrumentation; on 22, A Million and subsequent releases, Bon Iver often collaborated with a group of saxophonists known as Sad Sax of Shit.In Pitchfork's review of the album, the publication likened it to Radiohead's Kid A, saying, "Bon Iver's first album in five years takes an unexpected turn toward the strange and experimental. Bon Iver_sentence_119

But behind the arranged glitches and processed voices are deeply felt songs about uncertainty." Bon Iver_sentence_120

2018–present: Come Through shows and I, I Bon Iver_section_4

Main article: I, I Bon Iver_sentence_121

In mid 2018, Bon Iver partnered with TU Dance for Come Through, a series of shows featuring a group of contemporary dancers and during which several new songs were premiered. Bon Iver_sentence_122

In late 2018, during an Instagram Live session, frontman Justin Vernon revealed a folder named "BI LP4", containing 13 new songs. Bon Iver_sentence_123

He also revealed a snippet of the song "We Maddie Parry" (later shortened to "We"). Bon Iver_sentence_124

The band has been honored with a star on the outside mural of the Minneapolis nightclub First Avenue, recognizing performers that have played sold-out shows or have otherwise demonstrated a major contribution to the culture at the iconic venue. Bon Iver_sentence_125

Receiving a star "might be the most prestigious public honor an artist can receive in Minneapolis," according to journalist Steve Marsh. Bon Iver_sentence_126

Bon Iver recorded their fourth album in Texas during February and March 2019. Bon Iver_sentence_127

On June 2, 2019, Bon Iver debuted two new songs from the upcoming album at All Points East, a more polished version of the previously played "Hey, Ma" and the new song "U (Man Like)" (which was on the setlist Vernon showed in December and which features guest vocals from American singer-songwriter Moses Sumney, Bruce Hornsby, Elsa Jensen, Jenn Wasner & the Brooklyn Youth Chorus). Bon Iver_sentence_128

At the end of the same concert, Bon Iver advertised the website iCOMMAi, featuring similar cryptic messages as their recent lyric videos. Bon Iver_sentence_129

The next day, both songs were released as singles alongside a list of fall tour dates. Bon Iver_sentence_130

On July 2, the band released a teaser called "Sincerity is Forever in Season", voiced by Michael Perry and relating every album by the band to a season, with the then-upcoming fourth album being autumn. Bon Iver_sentence_131

A week later, on July 11, the band announced that their forthcoming album, I, I (stylized as i,i), would be released on August 30, 2019. Bon Iver_sentence_132

They also released the songs "Jelmore" and "Faith" as the third and fourth singles for the album, respectively. Bon Iver_sentence_133

On July 31, the band released a documentary short called Bon Iver: Autumn, featuring Vernon and bandmates discussing the i,i album and the upcoming Autumn tour. Bon Iver_sentence_134

On August 7, Bon Iver held free worldwide listening parties to preview the new album at over 60 locations around the world. Bon Iver_sentence_135

On August 8, starting at 6:00 am EST, the band began to release the previously unreleased album tracks one at a time, every hour on the hour, until 11:00 am EST. Bon Iver_sentence_136

The album as a whole was then released on several streaming services, 22 days before it was slated to be officially released. Bon Iver_sentence_137

In September 2019, dates for Asian and European tours in 2020 were released. Bon Iver_sentence_138

On January 21, 2020, the band announced a reissue of their first EP "Blood Bank", which contains new artwork by the usual collaborator Eric Timothy Carlson as well as both original songs and live versions of each one of them. Bon Iver_sentence_139

It was released on March 27. Bon Iver_sentence_140

On April 4, 2020, Justin Vernon premiered a new Bon Iver song, "Things Behind Things Behind Things" in "Where We Go From Here", a special event from Bernie Sanders. Bon Iver_sentence_141

On April 17, Bon Iver released a brand new song called "PDLIF" (Please Don't Live In Fear), which 100% of the proceeds will go to Direct Relief, a company providing resources during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bon Iver_sentence_142

On July 23, American singer-songwriter Taylor Swift announced that Bon Iver would feature on "Exile" (stylized in all lowercase), the second single from her eighth studio album, Folklore. Bon Iver_sentence_143

The song became Bon Iver's first top-ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Bon Iver_sentence_144

On August 5, Bon Iver released "AUATC" (Ate Up All Their Cake) featuring Elsa Jensen, Jenny Lewis, Bruce Springsteen, and Jenn Wasner. Bon Iver_sentence_145

The song was accompanied by a press release critiquing capitalism. Bon Iver_sentence_146

Swift then announced Evermore, a surprise follow-up album to Folklore on December 10, 2020, which also features Bon Iver on the title track. Bon Iver_sentence_147

Live performances Bon Iver_section_5

In live performances, Justin Vernon is joined live by Sean Carey (drums, vocals, piano), Michael Noyce (vocals, baritone guitar, guitar, violin) and Matthew McCaughan (bass, drums, vocals). Bon Iver_sentence_148

Noyce was Vernon's guitar student during high school. Bon Iver_sentence_149

Vernon uses various keyboard instruments during live performances including synthesisers such as a Dave Smith Instruments Prophet 6 and a Teenage Engineering's OP-1, while during studio recordings his instruments have included a Steinway & Sons Model D Concert Grand Piano. Bon Iver_sentence_150

Carey approached Vernon during one of the first Bon Iver shows, telling him he could play and sing all the songs. Bon Iver_sentence_151

Thereafter, the two played a number of them together. Bon Iver_sentence_152

McCaughan and Vernon met while on tour with indie-rock band The Rosebuds in May 2007. Bon Iver_sentence_153

Because of the extensive use of vocal harmony on the songs of For Emma, Forever Ago, Vernon was concerned that there would not be enough voices to duplicate the sound of the songs on the album in a live setting. Bon Iver_sentence_154

To compensate for this problem in early performances, Vernon passed out lyrics for some songs to the audience to sing along to. Bon Iver_sentence_155

In an interview with Pitchfork, Vernon described this dilemma. Bon Iver_sentence_156

"I don't want to be the guy with an acoustic guitar singing songs, because that's boring for the most part. Bon Iver_sentence_157

The song actually needs 80–500 people singing or whatever the vibe is of that room, it needs that fight." Bon Iver_sentence_158

Bon Iver performed at Lollapalooza 2009. Bon Iver_sentence_159

Bon Iver has also performed at Austin City Limits Music Festival, Glastonbury, Coachella, Øyafestivalen, Way Out West, Bonnaroo, Sasquatch! Bon Iver_sentence_160

and All Points East among others. Bon Iver_sentence_161

After the release of Bon Iver's second album, the live performances underwent a great deal of change. Bon Iver_sentence_162

With older performances consisting of Vernon playing guitar, while Noyce, Carey, and McCaughan varied instruments, the concerts following Bon Iver involved a much larger, full band. Bon Iver_sentence_163

The new lineup consisted of the original four musicians, and included 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) as well. Bon Iver_sentence_164

On February 2, 2012 Sasquatch! Bon Iver_sentence_165

announced Bon Iver as a headliner for their 2012 festival. Bon Iver_sentence_166

During Bon Iver's Asia tour in late February to early March 2016—the first tour since 2012—the live band still consisted of Vernon, Carey, McCaughan and Lewis, in addition to frequent Vernon collaborator Andrew Fitzpatrick (All Tiny Creatures, Volcano Choir) on guitar, synths and vocals; and sisters Emily, Jessica and Camilla Staveley-Taylor, also known as the folk vocal trio The Staves, whose album If I Was was produced by Vernon. Bon Iver_sentence_167

Mini-documentary Bon Iver_section_6

Bon Iver: Autumn is a 12-minute film directed by Andrew Swant, documenting the preparation for Bon Iver's 2019 North American tour to support their fourth album i,i. Bon Iver_sentence_168

The film focuses on Justin Vernon discussing the production of the upcoming live shows, the desire to maintain an intimate feeling despite the fact that they will be playing in larger, arena-sized venues. Bon Iver_sentence_169

It previews the motion-tracking technology used in the light show, and the immersive three-dimensional sound design planning. Bon Iver_sentence_170
