Metal RULES! This strongly held opinion may not reflect the tastes of everyone at Yeseo, but it’s certainly a core belief of our founder, Andrew Laws.
Music is an essential part of the lives of everyone at Yeseo; all team members are active, performing musicians. Almost all of our extended team of freelancers are also musicians. Between us we write and perform post-rock, folk, electronica, techno, ambient music, drum and bass, metal and many other genres.
We know that music is important to everyone, but here at Yeseo, it’s like, really, really, really important. Our office has a sound system made up of vintage separates and speaker stacks that are (if we’re honest) far too large for the room they are in.
So when we recently met the excellent humans behind the charity ‘Metal For Good’ we knew we wanted to support them in any way we could. Helping charities through Pro Bono work is an important part of our ESG policy, though we never dreamed we’d find a Metal-based charity to support!
Metal For Good takes everything great, positive, inclusive and supportive about metal and turns it up to 11. The charity offers grants to community groups and other organisations that use music to change lives. In their own words:
We believe that the rock and metal community is truly unique – we’re brought together through a love of great music and a sense of belonging. Through this shared identity, lives are often improved; we feel a part of something bigger, that we are accepted, and that someone has ultimately ‘got our back’.Metal For Good
We have started our relationship with Metal For Good by donating 500 button badges (from Best Badges) for them to help with fundraising at metal festivals throughout the UK this year. We look forward to finding more opportunities to help this brilliant charity meet its goals.
