Great Quotations: Bon Iver

Videos by American Songwriter

This has opened my eyes to what it’s going to take to do this band the way I really dream it could be. It’s going to take changing bandmates, changing sounds, changing instruments, changing voices, growing into myself, making tough decisions, taking the time to make tough creative decisions about what songs you play on SNL or what songs you write or how you want to approach press. How do I garner the sort of peace and harmony in my life that I don’t have now. I don’t write songs right now. I’m not worried about it and I’m being patient and I know they’re going to come. But I’d be much happier if they were just around all the time and I was able to breathe and feel a flow of things.
