Bon Iver emerged with an album “For Emma, Forever Ago” that became an indie folk touchstone and frontman Justin Vernon became an indie folk legend. Album was nothing short of breathtaking. It was a sound that resonated with a great many people, and Vernon became something of a sensation and was called the greatest singer-songwriter of his generation.
There are very few acts who evoke as much emotion as Bon Iver does in a live setting. While over the years the music that Justin Vernon and his band produce has changed from the acoustic twangs of debut ‘For Emma, Forever Ago’ to the electronic whirs of ’22, A Million’, one thing that has remained is their absolute perfection of a live show (NME). Bon Iver’s live show has transformed gradually over the years, evolving into a genuinely unique experience and proves he is 'magnificent' at whatever he does (Stereogum). With the help of awesome lighting, stage effects and a versatile five-piece backing band, he crafted an eclectic and electric show (The Gazette).
In August 2019, Bon Iver released fourth studio album “i,i” garnering an ecstatic response. Singles from the album went straight onto global streaming and radio playlists. “i,i” finds Bon Iver's Justin Vernon in a calmed creative state that he channels into the heart of each of the album’s 13 songs and features almost 50 musicians. “i,i” completes a cycle: from the winter of “For Emma, Forever Ago” came the frenetic spring of “Bon Iver, Bon Iver” and the unhinged summer of “22, A Million”. The northern hemisphere’s autumn marked Bon Iver’s most expansive, joyful and generous album yet.
