About this deal

DeYarmond Edison became his next musical project, as he graduated from college and relocated to Raleigh, North Carolina in August 2005.

For Emma, Forever Ago is the 2007 debut album by Bon Iver, who at the time consisted solely of Justin Vernon. The album was mostly successful among triple-A radio stations in the US, including many public stations in the Midwest, where the label focused their marketing campaign. It became a major commercial success for Jagjaguwar, an independent label, and has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), for combined sales, streaming and track-sales equivalent of over one million units.

crazy that 500 people put this ONLY colored record for this release on their wantlist, and it doesn't even exist.

He had listened to Vienna Boys' Choir recordings months prior, which inspired him to incorporate choral arrangements into his work.

He started to have health problems: he first contracted pneumonia, then mononucleosis, which developed into a liver infection that kept him bedridden for three months.

Justin Vernon, the primary force behind Bon Iver, seems to have tested his boundaries to the maximum, and in doing so has managed to break free from any pre-cursing or finished forms. He gained freedom in singing in a higher register, feeling he accessed "painful melodies" unattainable in his previous work. Though he did not intend to make an album, he received strong encouragements from friends and decided to self-release For Emma, Forever Ago in July 2007. Invited to follow a man swimming into his own sorrow and emerging back to reality by the end, Justin Vernon's work in this classic folk album achieves timeless and relatable heartache with harsh lyrics about meeting the bottom but being able to recover from it. According to Vernon, major labels were "desperate" to sign him, offering contracts in which he chose the deal.

Before heading back to Raleigh, he broke out some whisky with a couple friends and put the finishing touches on the record, recording brass on "For Emma.
