Live From Graceland!

Lisa Marie Presley performs in Graceland's Jungle Room

Sitting in a chair, lights and cameras pointed at her, Lisa Marie Presley involuntarily twitches when a soundman's boom microphone accidentally hits the ornate chandelier hanging overhead, just outside camera range.

She is sitting dead center, smack in the heart of Graceland — and however controlled, is giving off the vibe of a teenager whose parents went away for the weekend and now an unexpected mob of party guests are clumsily, but methodically, wrecking her house.

And what on earth will she tell her parents?

"I'm very protective over it," she says. "I feel really comfortable here, very happy and comfortable."

Maybe two rooms over, past Graceland’s dining room and kitchen, a herd of camera-crew types is setting equipment up in the Jungle Room, where Lisa’s father famously recorded in 1976, and where she'll soon be performing for the very first time, for all eyes to see.

"But this is working inside of where I grew up, which is very strange. I feel like I'm watching, making sure that everything doesn't get trampled over. That people are being careful while it’s happening."

Lisa Marie Presley performs in Jungle Room at Graceland

deenas days logoIn September during her stop in Memphis on her Storm and Grace Tour, Lisa Marie Presley performed in the Jungle Room at Graceland, the house where she grew up and where her dad recorded his last album Moody Blue. Today Yahoo Music released the performance on its site. Lisa performed "Over Me," "Sticks and Stones" and "Weary." (I can't embed them, so please click on the song title for video) "Sticks and Stones" is one of my favorites – watch for Lisa's drum solo at the end. And check out Michael Lockwood's (Lisa's husband and band leader) guitar in "Weary" – it's Elvis'.

LMP offers ‘Grace’ after the ‘Storm’

Music's favorite daughter performing in Sellersville Nov. 16

Lisa Marie Presley carries with her the most famous last name in pop music history. She has been world famous since the day she was born. And though one might assume that with her personal history and her DNA she'd have all the makings of an extrovert, that's not really the case when discussing her life. With some topics, she remains guarded, while with others, she speaks freely. Her latest critically-acclaimed album, "Storm & Grace," falls into the category of the latter. And it's worth talking about.

In a recent interview with The Weekender, Presley talked about "Storm & Grace," its accompanying tour, and some of her other recent musical endeavors in her native hometown of Memphis, where she not only recorded at the legendary Sun Studios, but also performed live on the same stage where a young and upcoming artist named Elvis Presley performed in 1954. She also recently did a home recording, so to speak. But in her case, "home" just happened to be the Jungle Room in a place called Graceland.

After a Lights Out Performance...

TIME TO DECLARE LISA MARIE PRESLEY HER OWN WOMAN

The ticket was free, the company was fun, the venue was a personal favorite so there was little to lose seeing Elvis' baby girl in concert. But after walking in apathetic, I watched the petite forty-five-year-old brunette give an intimate, emotional seventy-five minute performance that turned me into an enthusiastic fan.

Concert review: Lisa Marie Presley well-suited for coziness of Eddie's Attic

accessatlanta logoLisa Marie Presley is a diminutive figure, an inherently shy person who has nonetheless decided to put herself in the position of being an artist – and one who has spent months on the road, standing in front of crowds in intimate rooms and putting her vulnerability on display.

While she clearly isn't naturally comfortable onstage – though with five musicians backing her on the cramped Eddie's Attic stage, she might have felt physically penned in as well – she nonetheless conversed quietly with the audience and tried to indulge the boorish types who constantly interrupted her with song requests and irrelevant comments.
