Few musicians have had to face the pressures Lisa Marie Presley has had to endure over her career.
Being the daughter of Elvis Presley created a whole slew of unchartered challenges that left her struggling at times to find her own sound, separate from her famous father or from expectations brought on by record executives.
It took a collaboration with famed folk producer T-Bone Burnett to bring out Presley's true musical roots. The result is a 15-track blues/country record that has Presley performing alongside Burnett's backing band.
On her father in 3D: 'There's nothing in the works at the moment'
Lisa Marie Presley brought the tour for her recently released album, Storm & Grace, to her hometown of Los Angeles last week, delivering a confident set for a sold-out crowd at the Roxy Theatre. "It's more nerve-racking for me because mostly it's family, friends, industry, label," she tells Rolling Stone. "It's easier to play for a room full of people you don't know, for me at least. Playing for my family and people I know, I can feel what they're thinking and it throws me off."
Last night I had the pleasure of attending the musical storm that singer/songwriter Lisa Marie Presley brought to the intimate club setting of Slim's in San Francisco while on her promotional mini-tour for her new album "Storm & Grace". My first observation was the mixed crowd that Lisa draws. It was an eclectic mix of people there to hear good music, some to gawk, some LMP fans decked out in "pirate" gear and other randoms who are always drawn by the Presley name with their preconceived notions and personal expectations.
