Writing songs together since age 17, these two have an understanding of the need for creativity for creativity's sake. Making things shouldn't be about producing content for the masses, it should be about the fulfilment it brings you. Take a moment and 'inhale the nostalgia' with a 50 minute speech about life, mindfulness, songwriting and more...  http://augustradioproject.com Us playing 'Bonkers' at age 18: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h4wq1vukVWA

The podcast sees Benedict (August Radio Project) discussing life, music career, songwriting, his history and even playing a few of his tunes. In this episode, live from the van (#NellieTheVan - @lauraandbenedict) August Radio Project discusses how its important not to resist when changes happen. The hardest part of any change is the resistance you put up when it happens, learn to embrace and go with the flow. The things you miss about what was before will likely manifest into new exciting things and the things you don't want to lose sight of always have a way of remaining whether you put effort there or not. This week's episode also includes an unreleased song about someone very important.  http://augustradioproject.com
