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.

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.

Sarah Kinney hails from the tiny town of Raymond, WA. Growing up in the verdant forests of Washington, her favorite pastimes were climbing trees, watching professional bull riding, and reading Harry Potter. Moving to the rainy city of Portland, Oregon in 2008, Sarah picked up a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studios from Portland State University followed by a Masters of Arts in Cultural and Creative Industries from King’s College London. Sarah’s Master’s dissertation from King’s College focused on her interest in post-feminism as found in pop music videos. Returning to Portland, Oregon, she took up work with Mike Thrasher Presents, one of the biggest show promotion companies in the Northwest, where she coordinated the marketing for touring bands like Slayer, Animal Collective, Vince Staples, Insane Clown Posse and more. Harboring a deep, underground love for roots music of all kinds, she was snapped up by HearthPR and moved to Seattle, WA. Her favorite hobbies include eating brunch and smashing the patriarchy.

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 has also begun touring with her new band, Déjoli, and her hand-crafted crankies (vintage story scrolls).
