Bon Iver and Sunset-Flecked Snow

Bon Iver preforms "Calgary" on Later with Jools Holland

Justin Vernon leads a band called Bon Iver. If you're into indie folk, you may have heard of Vernon, a native Wisconsinite, who recorded a series of demos alone in his father's cabin in the Great North. For Emma, Forever Ago was born there.

Over time, I have come to identify deeply with Justin's work, and Bon Iver as a whole. Watching them preform is intimate; in this video, you can see how each bandmate weaves their own threads into the music. Sometimes, you can even hear the inaudible sound of winter in their songs. If there was one song that could describe my childhood winters underneath the pastel-flecked sunset, it would be this:

Is there a band, artist, album, or song that could describe a part of you, a part of your life? Share it with us!

  1. I love Bon Iver. I'm difiantly into Indie music, and specially Indie Folk, because it was the first genre in Indie that listened to. The first Indie band I listened to was Belle and Sebastian, so it brings me good memories from my early teen years.
