Bon Iver is a band founded in 2007 by American indie folk singer-songwriter Justin Vernon.
The band further consists of Michael Noyce, Sean Carey, and Matthew McCaughan. Vernon independently released Bon Iver's debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago in July 2007, the majority of which was recorded while spending three months in a remote cabin in Northwestern Wisconsin.
The band recently won two awards during the 54th annual Grammy Awards, including one from a major category: best new artist of the year.
The name, Bon Iver, is a play on the French phrase "bon hiver", meaning good winter.
Bon Iver has published two LP, as well as several EP, singles and collaborations.
