She gets up at dawn, throws on her dress and quietly opens the sliding glass door and heads outside to watch the sun climb up over the barren, dry land. She sips her tea as her mind wakes up with the world around her. Ravens call to each other and lizards scurry from one cactus to another. She closes her eyes and turns her face toward the sun. Her mind gently drifts towards music. She hums a melody.

Meet Lauren Perez: a gentle soul, dear friend, and keyboardist/backing vocalist for the band, Børns. We recently escaped to the desert to relax and soak in the sun before she leaves on a six week cross country tour. Before hitting the road on a tour like this, life is all about ease, comfort, and simplicity — keep things as uncomplicated as possible. She reminded me to slow things down and keep it easy. Spend time outside, breathe the fresh air, explore untraveled paths. Walk barefoot and laugh often. By nature, she is cool and welcoming. Inspiring and dreamy. And a perfect reminder to keep things simple.
