About Justin Vernon

Justin Vernon is a singer, songwriter, and producer most closely associated with the acclaimed indie band Bon Iver, which he launched as a solo project in 2007. The Wisconsin musician achieved breakout success in 2008 with Bon Iver's home-recorded debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago. High-profile features with Kanye West and a pair of Grammy Awards for Bon Iver's eponymous 2011 album followed, as Vernon expanded the project into a full band who experimented widely beyond their indie folk roots. He simultaneously branched out with side projects like Volcano Choir, Gayngs, and Big Red Machine while also positioning himself as an in-demand collaborator. Vernon steered Bon Iver into avant-garde territory on 2016's 22, A Million and 2019's I, I, and also engaged with the mainstream by guesting with Taylor Swift in 2020. In 2023, Vernon issued an archival box set devoted to his pre-Bon Iver band DeYarmond Edison.
