Life in discomfort - Nat Cheshire

Nat Cheshire seeks the extraordinary with relentless vigour. He is a painter turned architect turned father with a trans-disciplinary practice, Cheshire Architects, that he shares with his dad Pip. Operating across a huge breadth of types and scales, fields of luxury and austerity, newness and age, roughness and refinement, he sees diversity as a strength, not a weakness. And extreme discomfort as a gateway to a life worth living.

Eat the problem: Tom Hishon #46

"Any sort of plants, that you know, take over, or, cause his whole philosophy is eat the problem so if there's a weed or something thats potentially a pest in the UK he finds out whether it's edible and then incorporates it into a dish, which I think is such a cool way to look at something that is taking over, or damaging the landscape, is just eat it”

Arthur Ahbez - Creating Energy

 

I first heard Arthur with my ears. And it was love at first listen. His music is barnstorming good. And his first album "Gold" is one of my favourite albums of all time. He instantly conjures up comparison to Neil Young, Bob Dylan and folk, alt, rock and roll singers of the past yet remains fresh and exciting as eating freshly picked wild oregano.

“He has the voice you bang over tables to get to and plays with the ease and skill with which I devour an entire pavlova.”— Roy Colbert, Otago Daily Times

Ciaran McMeeken is a NZ singer songwriter with a voice and heart of gold. He likes golden turmeric lattes, comparisons to John Mayer and singing about what makes him feel excited and alive. He also has a goal to win a grammy and has just released the catchiest of songs to edit an instagram video of you cliff jumping, fire walking, holding hands with your lover, running on the beach with a labradoodle, eating something on fire and living the most extraordinary life  - That Feeling. (Warning: song will be stuck in your head for days!)
