In the darkness stands Lisa Marie Presley, chewing on a pastille and staring at the spotlight as she waits in the wings for her cue. Alone but never alone - a personal assistant sprinkles talcum powder on her palms and the soles of her bare feet, to stop them sweating and sliding over the stage.

The singer unveiled her new stripped-down musical style in a club show touting 2012 album "Storm and Grace."
It's fitting that Lisa Marie Presley filmed the video for her song "Weary" at Memphis' Sun Studios, where her legendary father recorded his early singles six decades earlier. That track, along with the rest of her new album Storm and Grace, features her performing in a roots rock mode that stands in marked contrast to her earlier pop-rock efforts. The style well befits the husky-voiced singer, who delivered a good portion of its songs during her intimate show Sunday night at NYC's City Winery.
Accompanied by a first-rate five-piece band that included her husband Michael Lockwood (sporting a bizarre feathered top hat) on guitar, Presley delivered a strong 90-minute set that well showcased the strengths of her new material. Despite her heritage, she's not a natural stage performer, displaying little sign of Elvis' aggressive charisma. But she revealed an endearing warmth and vulnerability, especially when she phoned her son from the stage so he could her hear rendition of the album's title track. "He better answer the phone," she warned.
