`Bon Iver` - American folk group, founded in 2007, folk-singer and songwriter Justin Vernon (Justin Vernon). At the moment, apart from in the Vernon group includes Michael Noyce (Michael Noyce), Sean Carey (Sean Carey) and Matthew McCone (Matthew McCaughan).
The band`s name comes from the French `bon hiver` -` successful zimy`.
The work on the first album, `For Emma, Forever Ago`,Vernon began shortly after the group `DeYarmond Edison` decay. While Justin struggled with mononucleosis ; leaving Raleigh, North Carolina (Raleigh, North Carolina), he moved to Wisconsin (Wisconsin). Place to fight the disease Vernon chose a rather unusual - they were owned by his father abandoned cabin in the north woods of. That`s when Justin first heard the French phrase, later turned into the name of his group.
Initially Vernon was not going to write new music ; last year already proved extremely stressful for him, so that more than just Justin wanted a break. Music, however, persistently made its way out ; actually,most of the first album was created just in time dwelling in his father`s hut.
It so happened that shortly before moving to Vernon helped the group `The Rosebuds` - and absolutely accidentally brought with him to Wisconsin some equipment for recording.
However, what happened in the end, to the end, Justin was not satisfied ;he planned to send the recording by major music labels and, if necessary, to further alter. Friends, listen to the result of his voluntary seclusion, we were so delighted that Vernon gave up the idea of the need for any alterations. Future showsthat the musician was not wrong - the album was extremely well received by critics and listeners, even in the most that neither is intact.
The second studio album was released on June 21 th of 2011. Yet, on March 23, Justin said `Rolling Stone` about the upcoming second CD ; originally it was expected that he would be called `Letters for Marvin`,but later it was called simply `Bon Iver`. 10 songs of the album in its essence represents a new - at least for Vernon - direction in music ; this time Justin attracted to work on the plate a team of talented musicians.
Just a month before the official release of the album it appeared on `iTunes`.After some time, the company `Apple` removed it from the store ; however, by that time a number of users have already redeem and download the disk. Ofitsialnykommentariev about the leak did not receive any of the `Apple`, neither Justin nor from his record company.
One only studio recording activity Justin is not limited to ;it is quite actively gives concerts. Usually along with it are the singer, pianist and drummer Sean Carey, singer and guitarist Michael Noyce and bassist Matthew McCone. Vernon got acquainted with them in different situations. Noyce once studied Justin play the guitar ; Makkonen with Vernon met in May, 2007, while working on `The Rosebuds`.Carey came to Justin Vernon after one of the first representations of `Bon Iver`; Sean said that the state of play and sing almost everything already written Vernon.
One of the main problems ` zhivyh` concerts was the lack of voices - Vernon is not without reason to believethat repeat on the disks used it effects it can only with the help of a very large group. In part, this problem is solved Justin, calling the whole room singing along. Vernon admitted that conventional rock songs always seemed to him too boring ; really complicated songs, in his view, required from 80 to 500 artists
