"Harp" was a print and online magazine that provided in-depth information on current music, mainly the adult album alternative genre, which encompasses a large variety of music. It was published from 2001-2008.

By 2008, "Harp" had moved well beyond its early AAA roots to become a more general interest magazine (compared in the media to such publications as Mojo, Uncut, Spin, Paste and Blender) with emphasis on the following genres: indie rock, pop, punk, Americana, psychedelia and assorted underground sub-genres. It was published 8 times annually.

On March 17, 2008, Guthrie, Inc., the company that publishes "Harp", officially announced that it would be suspending publication immediately. The last issue sent to subscribers and newstands was the March/April issue featuring Dave Grohl on the cover.

[ [http://harpmagazine.com/subscriptions/subscribe_no_more.cfm "Subscriptions: We regret to inform you that Harp has ceased publication, effective immediately!"] , harpmagazine.com, accessed March 28, 2008] The demise of "Harp" came on the heels of a similar announcement by "No Depression" and a number of other print magazines covering music.
