No Depression started it's life as a quarterly print magazine in 1995, fueled by it's founding editors' passion for alt-country music and long-form journalism. Over the course of it's 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 it's 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. After themed issues on instruments, gear, songwriting, and other tools, No Depression is dedicating an entire issue to the human voice. Summer 2021 serves as quite the vocal issue, literally and figuratively. Stories take a deeper look at singing range, technicalities, and timbre, but also highlight individuals whose voices carry words of change, protest, and dissent throughout roots music.
