What a fantastic project this is. We can't wait to share what the awesome community-minded people of The Common Unity Project Aotearoa are up to with their latest undertaking. Mark was there to capture some of their story, and where this charitable trust hopes to steer itself in the future. More soon!

Good morning whānau! Here is the first of Estère's Aston Rd Sessions that we filmed LIVE at Surgery Studios last year. Having just returned from a tour across Africa, it was fantastic to hear some of Estère's new work - there's an invigorating, contagious, hip-sashaying lineup of new tracks. Thanks Estère, Aston Rd + Dr Lee Prebble of Surgery Studios for having us along!

We were lucky enough to be a part of the Aston Rd Sessions again this year - a series of three consecutive evenings of live studio sessions with the fantastic talent of Aston Rd. Thomas Oliver, Louis Baker + Estère respectively performed in front of a live audience, with those audiences being treated to an especially created cocktail + curated tasting menu before an intimate performance experience in the studio's recording room. Under the audio-wizardry of Dr Lee Prebble, the guru + creator of renowned recording studio The Surgery, Thomas Oliver, Louis Baker and Estère each gave incredible performances which we will be making into live studio videos to be released later this year and next year.
