Punk Rock Doll is Lauren Napier.

Never really having roots in one geographic location, Lauren Napier has tailored her many creative interests to suit her ever changing address. Writer. Singer. Cellist. Model. Publicist. These are labels that can be indulged whilst traveling.

Lauren finds solace in the written word, inspiration in the frequencies of her favorite music, and creative tranquility in being able to have her visions and a part of her being captured on film. She has lived in many different stateside locations as well as European countries throughout her life; her studies and experiences have aided her in crafting a creative and global perspective outside of the traditional American schema. A degree at Bowdoin College with a stint at Humboldt University in Berlin found her delving into Medieval Literature and the German language.

Over the last ten years, Lauren has been a writer for such outlets as Smash Magazine, Tinsel Tokyo, Berlin Beat, Sugarhooker, Music Zeitgeist, NPR Berlin, Tacoma Volcano, and many others. She has acted as a tour manager for both club and festival circuits, a booking agent for national tours, a programming director and station manager for Bowdoin College’s radio station, a publicist for large scale music industry campaigns, a print and runway model, and as an editor for various texts including screen plays, lyrics and news articles. Her current project is a collection of short stories and melodies.

It all comes down to the fact that Lauren is inspired and excited by a challenge, an excess of glitter, the scent of whiskey, and the unpredictability of a creative life.
