NO DEPRESSION - ALL TOGETHER NOW (WINTER 2020)
Cat. no: COMND2346
Release Date: 6th November 2020
No Depression started its life as a quarterly print magazine in 1995, fueled by its founding editors’ passion for alt-country music and long-form journalism. Over the course of its first print run, it helped solidify the importance of Americana and roots music on the national stage.
In the years since, No Depression has developed a robust web publication, publishing long features, honest criticism, and weekly columns in addition to its wealth of community-driven content. In 2015, to celebrate the publication’s 20th anniversary, the FreshGrass Foundation brought it back to print as a highend, ad-free, quarterly journal focused once again on long-form music journalism.
The spirit of collaboration is a rich tradition in roots music, from songwriting to recording and live performances. But even sitting around a campfire away from stages and spotlights (or navigating virtual terrains in quarantine), roots music is often the soundtrack to what brings us together. The Winter 2020 issue of No Depression will highlight the multitude of ways that roots musicians collaborate and why this music in particular thrives on community.
