The name under which Wisconsin native Justin Vernon plays. He is an incredibly talented and gifted musician who fits into the indie-folk genre. Vernon's latest album, For Emma, Forever Ago, was written while Vernon spent 3 months in a remote cabin in Northwest Wisconsin. He played all of the instruments in that album to accompany his powerful voice. Overall, he is an artist that everyone should know and listen to, just because he is so talented.
