About Us

Since 2004, Spiral Earth has aspired to be the leading voice in folk, roots and americana music and beyond. From 2015 it also covers a selective range of the best new books plus film and TV.

First and foremost we are music lovers, championing music we love, from artists on major labels to unsigned acts.

We are editorially independent, and not beholden to any other organisation to dictate or skew our coverage.

Our core concern is quality journalism, we are proud to be a platform for some of the best writers in the industry.

Each year we run our respected Spiral Awards, cover festivals all over the UK and bring our readers news on a wide variety of subjects.
