Vernon's project has a now-famous origin story. After the break-up of a relationship and a band, he spent a cold winter at a Wisconsin cabin, writing and experimenting with the sounds on 2008's "For Emma, Forever Ago," which emerged as a sleeper hit on an indie label.

His self-titled follow-up, 2011's "Bon Iver," brought Vernon even farther into the mainstream, as he won Grammys for best new artist and best alternative music album.

Vernon, who recorded some vocal tracks for Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Fantasy," went in a more experimental electronic direction for 2017's "22, A Million." It was nominated for a Grammy and made many year-end, best-of lists.

Also on Monday, the Huntington Beach reggae band Dirty Heads announced a KettleHouse amphitheater show on Friday, June 22.

The band is bringing Iration, The Movement and Pacific Dub. The band will appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Wednesday.
