Bon Iver: Best New Artist



Bon Iver won the Grammy for the Best New Artist, which makes me giggle to myself since the band was founded in 2007. Only when Justin and Bon Iver collaborated with Kayne did it seem that they gained any fame. 

This is all fine and dandy to me, the less people who know about him, the smaller and more intmate his shows would be. Like the Mumford and Sons show a year and a half ago, before they got big. 

Needless to say, I'm glad he won the Grammy for Best New Artist. However, he's not exactly a "music awards' person. In fact, he's not exactly a public person. 

I read an interview he gave after winning the grammy's (which you can find here). I understand what he means about it being kind of silly to have awards for music (or even film for that matter, but don't tell my boyfriend I said that). 

I still believe that Bon Iver, as a band or an idea, is a brilliant one that everyone should check out (even if I don't want to share).

  1. It's always hard when your little undiscovered secrets become widely known. It's the same with books, restaurants, etc., even if we want our favorites to make it big. :-)

  3. sooooo true! it's funny when your favorite "undiscovered" bands hit the mainstream audience. I guess after he won, tons of people just hearing about him, were googling his name as "bonny bear." haha! xoxo

  5. He has some great music. Have you seen the SNL skit where Justin Timberlake plays Bon Iver? It is hilarious!
