Volcano Choir is an assembly of Wisconsinites Jon Mueller, Chris Rosenau, Jim Schoenecker, Daniel Spack, Justin Vernon, and Thomas Wincek. You might find these old friends also frequenting records and stages under different monikers, Collections of Colonies of Bees and Bon Iver. The collaboration predates the meteoric rise of Justin Vernon's Bon Iver project, with original songwriting dating back to the summer of 2005, right around the time the Bees first toured with Vernon's previous band DeYarmond Edison.
"We started collaborating three years ago and just this year we started to realize we had nine or 10 tracks almost done. I sing on it, but there aren't a lot of lyrics-- it's definitely more on the experimental side of things." - JUSTIN VERNON
