Hearth Music is a roots music promotion agency in the Northwest. We work with artists from around here or from around the US and Canada. We work to get their music in the hands of people who like good music.
On No Depression, we write about artists who we love but aren't currently promoting. If we break this rule, we'll let you know. Our No Depression page is a place to fall in love with new music and to learn about new traditions. Hearth Music's lead writer is Devon Leger. Formerly with Northwest Folklife, Leger founded Hearth Music in March 2010 and also founded the Seattle Folk Festival (Dec 9-11, 2011). Unless otherwise noted, Leger is writing Hearth Music blog posts on No Depression.
You can discover more of our favorite artists at the Hearth Music Online Listening Lounge.

The implied violence of these images lies at the heart of the fear many in authority seem to have for…Continue

In December, Hearth Music celebrated Roger Miller's birthday with one hell of a tribute at the Columbia City Theater in Seattle. The Roger Miller Tribute Night was a huge success, with a packed house, 14 of Seattle's finest musical acts performing their favorite Roger Miller ditties, and heartwarming highlights from the formidable Iaan Hughes (of KBCS) who shared photos, videos and stories of country music's favorite class clown! There was no greater pleasure and no greater…Continue

Every year I try and I try to cover the awesomest albums coming out in the folk/roots/world/indie roots/what-have-you genres, and every year I totally miss some great albums and feel bad about it. So this post is my annual tradition of repentance, a chance to wipe the slate clean and admit that I totally slept on some of the best music of 2013. This is kind of like my Top 10 list for 2013, only with more regrets.
Peter Rowan. The Old…Continue
