Hearth Music is a music publicity agency run by Devon & Dejah Leger in Seattle, Washington. We work with our favorite American roots artists to spread the true word about American traditions. Hearth Music also runs KITHFOLK, a new digital roots music magazine.
Unless otherwise stated, the writing on No Depression is by Devon Leger and we are writing about artists we do NOT currently work with. We just like to write about music and interview artists and No Depression has been a wonderfully welcoming resource for this.
