Bon Iver's debut release "For Emma, Forever Ago," a nine-song album, came together at a remote cabin in the woods of Northwestern Wisconsin. All of his personal troubles,including heartache, longing, love, loss, and guilt was purged into the form of song.
"For Emma, Forever Ago" consists of an ancient acoustic guitar or the occasional bass drum providing structure. Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) sings the majority of the record in falsetto and this vocal path acts as each song's main character and source of melody.
Songs performed: "Flume", "For Emma," and "Lump Sum."
