The Yellow Bird Project-T shirts & Charity.

Categorised as STUFF., STYLE.

The Yellow Bird Project is a Montreal-based non-profit organisation that works with an amazing range of indie rock musicians to create unique t-shirt designs that benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the musicians. Musicians including Bon Iver,Bloc Party, Grizzly Bear, Metric, The National & The Shins.

Let’s set the scene – the year was 2006, the sun it was shining, and two recent uni grads Casey and Matt set out to conquer the world. They decided it was time to make a difference and bring about a new world order of indie philanthropy. Maybe it was philosophy 101, guitar lessons, or an infinite awe for music that inspired them to climb aboard this train we like to call Yellow Bird, but we’re sure glad they did. Matt, in all his computer geekdom, was pretty involved in the wonderful world wide web, and so the online community seemed like an ideal venue for inter-galactic indie domination. Casey, with his salesman swagger became the spokesperson for attracting new bands and artists. Together they forged into a solid brigade and the troops then followed, the trumpets played, and the community kept expanding.

At first they had little to no connections with any bands. All they had was the desire, too many viewings of Field of Dreams, and a belief that the musicians themselves would appreciate such a venture and want to contribute. Thankfully, they were right. The wonderfully quirky Devendra Banhart was the first artist to sign on, and he really helped to jump start the project and give YBP some street cred. The project has since allowed the duo to reach the global community, and the interactions and friends they have made along the way are endless.They invite you to join in for the ride.

You can think of YBP as a tree of creativity, with branches joining together indie musicians, charitable organizations, and t-shirts with a fashionable punch.They’re a non-profit Montreal based organization dedicated to bringing their customers the finest of quality, originality, and philanthropy. They seek out only the radest of rad artists, collaborate with them to design awesome tee-shirts, and give all the prettiest of pretty profits to charities of the artists’ choice.
