Bon Iver - Bon Iver
Bon Iver: 'Bon Iver'
20th June 2011

Bon Iver - Bon Iver

Following his triumphant debut, For Emma, Forever Ago, was never going to be easy but Justin Vernon did it with aplomb.

Painstakingly crafted over three years at April Base Studios (a former veterinarian's clinic in Fall Creek, WI, converted into a recording studio by Justin and his brother), the end results were outstanding; a lush landscape of silky electric guitars, intricate keys, and subtle horn and string sections, which retained the ghost choirs and densely layered vocals that Bon Iver is widely celebrated for.  

Such was the success of this record, Justin went on to win two GRAMMY’s in 2012 – Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album.
