Lisa Marie Presley (born February 1, 1968 in Memphis, Tennessee) is an American singer, daughter of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu Presley.Lisa Marie is a close friend of her father's ex-girlfriend Linda Thompson.
In 2003, after advice from Thompson's record producer and then-husband David Foster, she launched a career as a singer. Her debut album, To Whom It May Concern, reached #5 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and was certified gold.
To promote it she presented a concert in the UK, something that her father never did but wanted. Presley released her second album, Now What, in 2005 and it reached #9 on the Billboard 200. It was certified gold in November 2005.
Unlike her first album, Now What included a Parental Advisory sticker.Lisa Marie attended a variety of schools, mostly boarding schools, a few in Los Angeles County (among them the John Thomas Dye School), and also in Ojai, Ventura County, California, She was briefly a student at a Church of Scientology school in Los Angeles.
Her third album, Storm & Grace, came out on May 15, 2012. She said: "It's much more of a rootsy record, organic record, than my previous work." It is produced by Oscar and Grammy-winner T-Bone Burnett.
Allmusic offered this view: "On her first two albums, Lisa Marie Presley wanted to be a pop star with a difference; on Storm & Grace, she clearly would rather be an artist, and if she's still working her musical shortcomings out of her system, this is a stronger, more mature, and more effective work than one might have expected.
Nearly ten years into a recording career she may or may not have wanted, Presley is finally developing a musical personality that truly suits her."Spinner.com observed: "Presley has made the strongest album of her career in the upcoming Storm & Grace.
It's a moody masterpiece, exploring the demons and angels of her life to the tune of country-spiced downbeat pop.""Storm & Grace is the album she was born to make – a raw, powerful country, folk and blues collection that finds her embracing her Southern roots and family name," said Rolling Stone.
Entertainment Weekly praised the "smoky, spooky" single "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet".
