Bon Iver



Bon Iver (/bn ˈvɛər/ Bone-ee-VARE) is an American indie folk band founded in 2006 by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon. The name "Bon Iver" derives from the French phrase bon hiver (French pronunciation: ​[bɔn‿ivɛːʁ]) ("good winter"),[1] taken from a greeting on Northern Exposure.[2]

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. The band later won in 2012 the Grammy awards for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album for their album Bon Iver, Bon Iver.[3][4][5] They released their third album 22, A Million to critical acclaim in 2016.[6]
