Bon Iver chords

Bon Iver is an American indie folk band founded in 2006 by lead singer and songwriter Justin Vernon. The group's name is derived from a French term for "good winter," which alludes to the harsh winter of northern Wisconsin, where Vernon spent three months alone in a cabin recording the band's debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago (2007).

The album was released to critical acclaim and gained worldwide recognition for its unique sound, which combines folk-rock and electronica with elements of hip-hop and jazz. The album sold over half a million copies worldwide and earned the band two Grammy Awards, including Best New Artist in 2012.

Since then, Bon Iver has released two more highly acclaimed albums: Bon Iver (2011) and 22, A Million (2016). The band has also embarked on several world tours, including one that was documented in collaboration with Red Bull Music Academy.

Bon Iver's sound is diverse and eclectic, often incorporating traditional acoustic instruments such as banjos and mandolins alongside electronic elements like synthesizers, drum machines, and samplers. The band's songs are often characterized by Vernon's falsetto vocals and Rayna Gellert's haunting backing harmonies. Vernon's lyrics often contain references to nature and spirituality, while Gellert's backing vocals lend an ethereal quality to the music.

Bon Iver's sound has been described as "cinematic," with some reviewers comparing it to film scores. The band's music has been featured in numerous films and television shows, including Grey's Anatomy, Super 8, and The Fault in Our Stars. In 2017, the band collaborated with Kanye West on his critically acclaimed album The Life of Pablo.

Bon Iver has also collaborated with other artists such as James Blake on their song "I Need a Forest Fire". They have also worked with artists such as St. Vincent on her album MASSEDUCTION (2017), Feist on her album Pleasure (2017), and Big Red Machine (2018).

Bon Iver has received widespread critical acclaim throughout their career and have been praised for their ability to create powerful music that is both emotionally resonant and musically innovative. Their music continues to be embraced by fans around the world who find comfort in its haunting beauty.
