Brooke Fraser translated her pensive and intelligent folk-pop into massive commercial success, emerging as one of the best-selling New Zealand singer/songwriters in history via her 2003 debut LP, What to Do with Daylight.

At 12, Fraser composed her first original song, and a few years later she taught herself guitar.

There’s nothing quite like shaking off a hangover by plunging into the frigid waters of English Bay with thousands of other like-minded (read: crazy) individuals. This year, why not kick off 2015 right — with a mild case of hypothermia and an endless stream of shivers?
