Lisa Marie Presley breaks free with 'Storm & Grace'
BURBANK, Calif. – Lisa Marie Presley cocks her head to the right, closes her eyes and whispers the last lines of a lullaby called Soften the Blows.
The sound of one person clapping shatters the silence in the rehearsal space.
"Thank you," says Presley, her looks so reminiscent of her father's that if she added "very much," you'd swear the ghost of Elvis had entered the building. "No one's heard this music live yet, other than a couple of 3-year-olds."
Actually, the argument could be made that no one has truly heard the King of Rock 'n' Roll's daughter before. Until now.
Lisa Marie Presley and daughter Riley Keough strike a pose at the launch party for the "Commando: The Autobiography of Johnny Ramone" on Friday (April 27) in West Hollywood, Calif.
The mother-daughter duo came out to support the book and their pal, Linda Ramone, who hosted the swank event. For over 20 years, Linda was married to Johnny, who was one of rock and roll's most influential guitarists.
Elvis' child comes home to debut her new album
LOS ANGELES -- Sinking her petite frame into a large, white, leather couch, Lisa Marie Presley peers out through familiar eyes, the sleepy half-slits of her famous father, and ponders the weight of her name.
"You know, there's no manual, no book written on how to deal with all this," says the only child of Elvis Presley.
Lisa Marie Presley's early attempts at breaking into the family business were overshadowed by the family legacy - she is, after all, the only child of Elvis, ex-wife of both Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage, and survivor of a chemically enhanced childhood. But after taking some seven years out of the limelight to find her footing, Presley returns this week with the excellent T Bone Burnett-produced album "Storm and Grace," a vintage-sounding set of songs that gives her rich, bluesy voice the showcase it deserves. The first single, "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet," is out now. She talked to us at a playground near her home in Los Angeles.
Monday, May 14th at 7:00 pm, you can meet Lisa Marie Presley at Sun Studio and be among the first to purchase her new album, "Storm & Grace."
What better place to meet Lisa and get her to autograph her latest album than in the studio where rock 'n' roll was born? Sun Studio is located at 706 Union Ave in Memphis and will be open all day so arrive early and take the tour.
