Bon Iver from the Bon Iver Feist
duo is an American band. It was formed in 2007. Its founding member was Justin Vernon who is an indie folk singer and songwriter. Other members of the band include Michael Noyce (guitar), Matthew McCaughan (bass and drums) and Sean Carey (drums and piano). New additions to the band are Rob Moose (guitar and violin), Mike Lewis (bass), Reginald Pace, C.J. Camarieri and Colin Stetson on the horn section. They released their debut album independently the same year of their formation. It was titled For Emma, Forever Ago
. It reached number sixty four on US charts along with critical acclaim. Rolling Stone
placed it at number twenty nine on their list of "Top 50 Albums of 2008". It did much better in Europe and Australia. It was certified gold in the UK, Denmark and Australia. Its popular songs include "Skinny Love", "For Emma" and "re: Stacks".
Success in its true form came to Bon Iver when they released their second album in 2011. The album was titled Bon Iver, Bon Iver
. It consists of ten songs with each song representing a new place or city. For example, the song "Perth" was a heavy metal number, "Minnesota, WI" featured guitars, drums and saxophone, and "Beth/Rest" consisted of the horn. It was a departure from their usual style because for the sake of the album, Vernon had included a list of other musicians to give their songs a new feel. Thus, the songs showed more diversity and layers which added depth to the music of the band. This approach was a big hit with the audiences and the album was an instant success. It reached the Top 10 in many countries around the world. It topped the US alternate, indie and rock charts as well as charts in Denmark. Bon Iver received two 2012 Grammy Awards
for "Best New Artist" as well as "Best Alternative Album" for Bon Iver, Bon Iver
. Popular song of the album "Holocene" got nominated for Grammy
"Song of the Year" and "Record of the Year". You can listen to this song and a lot more at the Bon Iver Feist
