Lanakila MacNaughton is a motorcyclist, photographer and designer based out of Portland, Oregon. For the last year she has been traveling down the west coast documenting the real women that ride motorcycles. Lana immediately caught our attention due to our love for beautiful imagery and lust for motorcycle culture. It just so happened that a handful of these new-waves modern female motorcyclists are friends of ours: Ashmore, Jenny, and Lindsay. They were delighted to get us connected with the talented read more >

The much anticipated Quality Peoples store has opened for business. I had the opportunity to rock a few items from QP this last 4th of July weekend and felt the Hawaii vibes radiating from the 17″ Pupukea Surf Short. Yes, these shorts are short, and yes I felt rad wearing them. It even helped out my surfing in double over toe Malibu surf. The tanks are amazing, super soft and of the highest quality and the read more >

Theo Gosselin is one of my favorite photographers I’ve ever came across. I say this boldly because besides the fact that there are a lot of photographers that are shooting in a raw, sun-flared style, Theo evoked so much emotion from me this morning that time stopped moving forward and I dove into a reminiscent state. As I looked through his photos and Iron and Wines’ Upward Over The Mountain stared playing on his website, I feel read more >

There is no denying that Chris Laufman and his project Wise Blood are unlike anything else out there. This master of musical layering has carved out a sound in the past two years that stands out from the rest. High energy percussion and R&B inspired electro pop with a production style more akin to the current crop of underground rap producers round out his signature style. It’s odd and obscure but everything just works, a true read more >
“If every time you walked into a room there was a song that started playing, what would that song be?” This is a common question I like to ask people – some know right away, some have to think about it for a while and others have no idea. It’s always an entertaining conversation and I typically like to come up with a theme song for them and let them know why I’ve chosen it.

All of the music we feature on Witness This has to touch us, Cosmo Sheldrake immediately did that and much more. His style is like NOTHING we’ve ever seen before, it’s deeply layered, eclectic, abstract, humble, heartfelt, and too much fun. He plays everything from a banjo, loop station, keyboards, double bass, drums, didgeridoo, penny whistle, to a sousaphone. Born in Brighton in the UK he has blessed pig farms to TED conferences, playing his read more >
