Bon Iver was formed in 2006 by singer-songwriter Justin Vernon. His debut album, "For Emma, Forever Ago," was released in 2007. In 2012, Bon Iver was named Best New Artist at the Grammy Awards and also took home the award for Best Alternative Album for "Bon Iver, Bon Iver."  Their third album, "22, A Million," was released in 2016.

Earlier this year, Lord Huron, released their third album, "Vide Noi," which honors the traditions of both rock and folk as it embraces modern studio techniques. Lord Huron was created by Ben Schneider.  In 2012 the band’s debut album "Lonesome Dreams," was released followed by "Strange Trails" in 2015.

Julien Baker’s solo debut, "Sprained Ankle," was one of the most widely acclaimed works of 2015.  With her latest album, "Turn Out the Lights," she retains the haunting delicacy of her heartbreakingly confessional style that makes her music a refuge for her fans.
