Jonathan Meiburg – “Restless and Relaxed” – TWP003

Jonathan Meiburg is a bonafide rock star.  But for the past twenty years, when he isn’t touring or cutting a new album, Jonathan has been routinely drawn to the Falkland Islands and the striated caracara, a rare falcon whose brain has been found to be strangely human.  He’s also one of the most creatively generous people we know.  Which is why we asked him to be the composer for The Well.  We hope you enjoy this in-house interview as much as we enjoyed making it.

Ken Leung – “Don’t Mess With Rocky” – TWP002

Actor Ken Leung woke up one morning to a phone call.  It was his father telling him that he had to fly to Thailand to bring back the body of his brother Kevin who had suddenly drowned while on vacation.  Ken explains a mystery surrounding the circumstances; and goes on to tell us how the experience of handling his brothers affairs changed his outlook on both his life and his craft.

(Ken’s credits include Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Vanilla Sky, Rush HourKeeping the Faith, X-men: The Last Stand, Vanilla Sky and the TV shows Lost and The Inhumans.)

Kelly Gleason Keogh – “The Two Brothers” – TWP001

In 1820, the whaleship Essex was attacked by a sperm whale and sank.  A handful of men survived through shear force of will and their story became the inspiration for Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.  But that wasn’t the end of the story.  Dr. Kelly Gleason Keogh tells us how Captain George Pollard went on to helm another fateful ship… and how she uncovered its watery remains.
