The biographical details behind the creation of an album shouldn't matter when
it comes to a listener's enjoyment, but For Emma, Forever Ago, Justin Vernon's
debut as Bon Iver, exudes such a strong sense of loneliness and remoteness that
you might infer some tragedy behind it. So, to skirt the rumor mill, here are
the particulars, as much or as little as they might apply: In 2005, Vernon's
former band DeYarmond Edison moved from Eau Claire, Wisconsin, to North
Carolina. As the band developed and matured in its new home, the members'
artistic interests diverged and eventually the group disbanded. While his
bandmates formed Megafaun, Vernon-- who had worked with the Rosebuds and
Ticonderoga-- returned to Wisconsin, where he sequestered himself in a remote
cabin for four snowy months. During that time, he wrote and recorded most of the
songs that would eventually become For Emma, Forever Ago.
