“By nature, being a touring musician means living a very bizarre, nomadic lifestyle,” says singer Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick.

“I would say in the last two years it’s been insane,” adds band co-leader Noelle Scaggs.

“Greater Palm Springs is the place that you go to disconnect and reconnect with yourself,” Fitz continues. “You feel like you’ve entered a completely different world. It’s a place where you can come and unwind from the business (of the world).

“I just like to find a quiet space and calm myself and tune the world out for a second, Maybe even sometimes do a small moment of meditation.”

“There’s this very relaxed vibe that you don’t really find in other places,” says Scaggs. “Greater Palm Springs is a vacation for us.

“Some of my favorite things to do in Greater Palm Springs? I like a good time. I like a good martini… I love discovery. I love to hop on my Yelp feed and go to the tenth page and find the spot that nobody’s been to. ”

Fitz’s wife, Gossip Girl star Kaylee Defer says, “I think an essential part of living a healthy lifestyle is being able to escape. Greater Palm Springs Is the ultimate oasis. I think one of the best things about this destination is the chill culture. It’s just the place you go to relax.”
