Based in Haw River, NC, Yep Roc Records was founded in 1997 by Tor Hansen and Glenn Dicker. Known for a genre-busting catalogue, Yep Roc has released over 300 albums, singles, videos and boxed sets to date. "If I've got my Yep Roc t-shirt on, I'm not really a part of one scene," says Hansen." I accept that, in fact I love it."
