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.

By the way, if you're looking for a TL:DR version of this, just hit…Continue

It’s been about a month since the annual Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City, Missouri, but I’m still listening to all kinds of music from the new albums I picked up there and I’m still buzzing from the intensely rewarding experience of hosting my own room. Actually, I hosted the room with two other organizations: Quicksilver Productions and 12X12 Management, and our room ended up being quite the late-night destination! There were some amazing all-star jams,…Continue

Since leaving the Carolina Chocolate Drops last year, founding member Dom Flemons has been busy. He's been touring around, opening for Reverend Payton's Big Damn Band and others, released a workshop video on How to Play the Quills, has been doing some powerful writing for outlets like Oxford American and recorded and toured with elder country blues statesman Boo Hanks. With 2014 rolling in like a hurricane, he's hard at work, now with a trio under his name and a new career focus.…Continue
