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 high-end, ad-free, quarterly journal focused once again on long-form music journalism.
The Fall 2019 issue of No Depression is our take on a Food & Drink issue. In time for the harvest season, No Depression explores what roots musicians eat, drink, and smoke, as well as farm, foster, and distill. In a larger sense, the issue also aims to balance body and mind and embrace contemporary notions of self-care. Of course, stories also include a taste of roots music’s indulgences, too!
