Hearth Music is a family-owned business based in Shoreline, Washington out of our home office. We’ve grown from what was once a two-person operation to five employees on site. We owe our success to all of our friends in roots radio and press who’ve been so supportive of us, and to the amazing artists we’ve been fortunate enough to work with.

Devon Leger founded Hearth Music in 2010 after spending six years as the lead booker for the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle. A graduate of the University of Washington’s Ethnomusicology program, Devon brings a wide knowledge of music traditions and a passion for community music making. He’s also a prolific freelance music journalist, writing about and interviewing the best young roots musicians in the US and abroad with a focus on marginalized artists in the folk community.

Daniel Zephyr Cooper was born to be a music publicist. With a mother who is a key player to this day on the Canadian folk music scene, Daniel grew up at music festivals learning the tricks of the trade. He first made his mark in Canada with the popular and acclaimed Pinball Sessions, a series of audio and video sessions from his home in Toronto that featured artists like Pokey Lafarge, Sam Doores, Leyla McCalla, David Francey, Kacy & Clayton, Pharis & Jason Romero, and more! Prior to joining HearthPR he formed his own publicity company, Home Base PR. Now a resident of Seattle, he wanders the alleys of Ballard nightly looking for great underground country music and old pinball machines.
Dejah Leger founded Hearth Music with her husband Devon in 2010 and her graphic design has been a cornerstone for our business ever since. In the early days of Hearth, we’d hand-wrap every package and create interactive greeting cards. Now, Dejah’s interests lie in linocuts, papercuts, and original drawings, all of which have been integrated into Hearth’s current mailings as well. An avid fan of French-Canadian traditional music and a burgeoning expert on Canadian hockey, Dejah hass also begun touring with her new band, Déjoli, and her hand-crafted crankies (vintage story scrolls).
