Bon Iver

Justin Vernon quietly stepped into the spotlight in 2008 with For Emma, Forever Ago, an album born out of reclusive solitude and heartbreak. It's tough to call it an unlikely hit, though; the songs really resonated with people, opening the door for Vernon to record more albums as Bon Iver, explore side projects (Volcano Choir, Gayngs), and collaborate with artists that run the gamut from Kanye West to Anais Mitchell.
