Welcome to the No Depression website! I'm the publisher of No Depression, at least that's what my business card says. I'm not sure that term is really all that accurate in this age of new and evolving business models for journalism. I prefer to think of myself as the steward of No Depression because really it belongs to all of you who make this place a vibrant engaging source of roots music news and information.
I hope you enjoy your time here. Please tell your friends and if you have thoughts or ideas on things you'd like to see, or things you think we could be doing better please drop me a line in the comments below.

The Well Rounded Radio podcast is a particularly good overview of my past with the magazine, some of what it took to make this website a reality and some of my thoughts on the future of print publishing and the digital space.
