From Songwriting to Watchmaking: a Conversation With Lorca Watches’ Founder Jesse Marchant
Jesse founded Lorca Watches in 2022 in New York City with the goal of offering uniquely designed timepieces that are not only beautiful and well-made but also affordable and reliable. As an NYC-based recording artist, Jesse's vision for Lorca Watches was born out of his own need for a watch that was missing from his tours. His aim is to evoke a sense of romance and pride in those who wear his watches.
The Joy of Cooking (for Friends & Family)
Butter. Garlic. Heavy Cream. Shallot. Basil. Thyme. These are words of affection, as far as I’m concerned. Because when these ingredients are properly prepared – chopped, sauteed, simmered, braised, garnished – they’re one of the greatest ways on this planet to say “I love you.”
How Your Daily Essentials Can Define Your Day
and how they contributed to what I did or did not do. I never considered what I kept in my desk drawer at the office. That was until Frank intervened. Who is Frank? Frank Martin, yes that’s right, Jason Statham’s character in the movie The Transporter.

Matters of Taste: the Art of Eating Oysters
rom the great bear selling oysters outside Paris’ Hôtel Lutetia. He was part of the furniture in Saint-Germain – a huge, looming presence with deft, shovel-hands. We’d often exchange nods, then one day, we started talking. He shared a love for bivalves that’s stayed with me ever since. Nearly 25 years later, another teacher chimes in: “You have to bite into them, that’s when the umami flavours develop.”
Signed, Stamped and Delivered: The Lost Art of Postcards
From under our noses, life becomes complicated — full of obligation and duty to ‘get by’, or if we’re so inclined, make something of ourselves. I’m guilty of it as much as the next man. And only now that time has slowed a little am I able to feel the chasm of time, space, and touch between me and my brothers. So, I’ve started to write postcards again. Signed, stamped, and delivered from one corner of the earth to another. It’s a lost art, really, like patience. Yes, it would be easier to text, but it’s not enough.
Why Some Conversations Never Click: Understanding the Three Zones of Communication
I often wondered why it was that some people just never ‘click’, as people say; when the conversation reaches one of its inevitable and awkward moments of ineptitude and silence, we relegate potential relationships to the bin because we feel that our styles of communication just differ. Game over.
