David Marchese, writing for Spin, suggested Vernon's "sturdy folk chords, earthy melodies, and plainspoken, pastoral lyrics prevent the album from descending into self-pity. The work of Justin Vernon, who made the record whilst spending three months alone in a log cabin in Northeast Wisconsin; living off the land, splitting wood, and hunting for food.

Johnson, and Josh Kaufman), subtly recast centuries of standards into a bottled blend of synergy on their 2021 self-titled debut album. He attended the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire (UW–Eau Claire), where he played in a number of bands. I arrived at the cabin in November, so there's a very big winter theme for everything when I was there.

His lyrics on the album aspire to tell stories, which was inspired by musician Bruce Springsteen, [12] and the song structures are unorthodox.

He left Raleigh and drove to his father's remote hunting cabin an hour northwest of his hometown, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, hoping to be alone. He gained freedom in singing in a higher register, feeling he accessed "painful melodies" unattainable in his previous work.Afterwards, he spent time as a band member for The Rosebuds; his contributions feature on their third album, Night of the Furies.

In summer 2009, the band played various festivals, including Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, and Austin City Limits. Enigmatic songs like the elegantly stumbling "Creature Fear" with its rowdy horn parts, the resolute opener "Flume" and the evanescent "Team" are just so pretty they seem to glide by without leaving a mark in the snow.While at the cabin, Vernon had written to Kelly Crisp of The Rosebuds, concluding his letter with "bon iver," a misspelling of "bon hiver," which is French for "good winter.

He broke-up with his then-girlfriend, Christy Smith, [7] [13] and tossed his recording equipment into the trunk of his car. On a physical level, I would wake up to stoke the fire or get wood chopped to get it in the house to keep warm.

The work was "labor-intensive," as he often merged over a minimum of eight tracks of vocals on each song.
