Bon Iver

I discovered this artist while I was doing my hair in a salon one day and loved it!  I went out and bought the album that day and listened to it everyday for at least 2 months over and over again.  The sounds are so beautiful and soothing.  Bon Iver is such a beautiful artist check out the site here.

Bon Iver  is an American indie folk band founded in 2007 by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon.  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 in a cabin in northwestern Wisconsin. Bon Iver won the 2012 Grammy Awards for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album for their album Bon Iver, Bon Iver. The name Bon Iver is derived from the French phrase bon hiver , meaning “good winter”, taken from a greeting on Northern Exposure.
