Biography

Lisa Marie Presley

Storm & Grace

With all the hoopla that has surrounded her, it’s easy to forget that Lisa Marie Presley is at heart a simple Southern girl whose earliest musical memories are of obsessively listening to 45’s in her bedroom at Graceland and of her dad catching her singing into a hairbrush in front of a mirror at the age of three.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Blessed--or is it cursed?--with a visage that's a distinctly haunting echo of her father's, Lisa Marie Presley has either spent most of her adult life assiduously avoiding a music career or engaged in Machiavellian schemes to secure one, depending on your spin source. But here it is, informed by no small amount of tabloid-ready living (three failed marriages, including two bizarre years the King's daughter spent playing Princess of Pop to Michael Jackson) and a slate of modern record-biz heavy hitters. The album's first single, "Lights Out," is a countryfied pop collaboration with Glen Ballard in which the singer's tough, bittersweet lyrics obliquely confront the daunting legacy of her father and the Memphis where her "family's buried and gone." Her husky alto isn't the only thing that recalls Sheryl Crow; the bristling textures of Andy Slater (Wallflowers) and Eric Rosse (Tori Amos) are a veritable textbook of modern-rock techniques, wed to some smart cover choices that bolster her music's moody, introspective bent. But that gloss sometimes makes Presley seem like a guest artist on her own album, making one curious to hear her in the setting where her father was so often riveting: Alone in the spotlight. They don't call it the gene pool lottery for nothing. –Jerry McCulley

The most impressive aspect of Lisa Marie Presley's debut album, "To Whom It May Concern," is that her lyrics are blatantly confessional on a scale that makes those of Courtney Love look like Kurt Cobain's widow had taken a vow of silence. From the death of her father when she was 9 years old ("I wish that I had spent just a little more time with you") to her tabloid marriages to Michael Jackson ("You're in some blind elation, a kind of delusion") to Nicholas Cage ("When I turned my back you cut my throat") Lisa Marie lays it out there for the world to see. Such emotional honesty certainly earns our respect, especially in this age of carefully packaged pop princesses and the album's cover shot makes it perfectly clear that nobody ever has to ask Lisa Marie the question, "who's your daddy?"
Unfortunately "To Whom It May Concern" is often as over produced as a Brittney Spears album (remember her?). This is someone surprising given that the album is produced by the likes of Eric Rosse (Tori Amos), Andrew Slatter (Fiona Apple) and Glen Ballard (Alanis Morissette), all of whom have worked with artists who refrain from hiding the vocals behind overwhelming layers of music. The opening track, "S.O.B." is a perfect example: it starts off with Presley's semi-sultry alto vocals, and then then the band cranks it up big time. You might have to go back and listen to the song again to see if Lisa Marie said what you think she said in that song (yeah, she did). You find the same pattern on "The Road Between," "Important," etc., and you have to conclude that these guys must have thought they were covering up limitations of her voice. That might be a concern when you are doing nothing but singing songs written by someone else (classic example, Paula Abdul), but not when they are your songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars LMP storms the rock music scene April 10, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Lisa Marie Presley, daughter of the most famous rock star ever, blazes her own trail. She definitely steps in the right direction, supported on the album by very good musicians and fine back vocals. Perhaps I should quote Letterman, who said, after a performance of 'Lights Out' on his show (apr 9), that she has "a powerful voice". That is true, indeed... What a powerful voice!
To Whom It May Concern contains glimpses of the best from yesterday's and today's pop songs ; adult alternative, folk-rock, new country and gothic mesh together in a splendid aggregate that should leave you astounded in the best sense of the word. The result is, sometimes, dazzling --most of the compositions and lyrics have guts and energy (with unexpected novelty, as in 'Sinking In' and 'Gone' in particular). One of her best songs, in my opinion, is 'Savior', included only on the single-cd (in limited edition, I presume, it will become a collector's item). LMP will make big waves with the release of To Whom It May Concern, I'm sure of that. A nice album, and a nice treat for those enamored of solid rock and chunky-but-still-subtle ballads.
On this cd, she invents something, she does not replicate. Rock music of the 21st century. In fact, her debut album cannot be compared, its content is much original (even though there are the inevitable references to Sheryl Crow and Cher). The album honors the electric guitar, with shades of acoustic guitar hovering here and there. I seldom heard such beautiful guitar sounds to support a rock singstress --except, perhaps, from the likes of Penny Framstad or Mae Moore. LMP takes the scene by storm. The wild child is too wild to tame... Still, her voice is very good, sweet as well as "beefy" (she never shrieks or get abbrasive).

5.0 out of 5 stars <3 April 14, 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is just absolutely amazing. Hard to describe in words. Her voice is beautiful, every song on the album tells a story, a story of heartbreak, of happiness. All of which are her, her life, 100% real. To be honest, I didn't expect much from Lisa Marie (and now I see it was stupid), not many people did, because she is her fathers daughter, I was very impressed with every track on the album. Her lyrics are so powerful, and have so much meaning. 'Nobody Noticed It' is an incredible song, written for her father, with such strong lyrics "You're still lovely, You were lovely then" "You made me, I love you, and do you know, nothing has changed, now everyone they notice it, everyone notices". Also with backing vocals by her children on the track 'To Whom It May Concern'. I recommend this album to any and everyone that enjoys listening to just great music. All songs written or co-written by Lisa Marie herself, which is something you don't see now-a-days. Just go buy it, it'll be worth every cent, I guarantee.

5.0 out of 5 stars An aching album...at its finest... April 8, 2003
Format:Audio CD
What an exceptional debut album by Lisa Marie. This album is drenched in trials of a tough life and heartache. With aching vocals and whining guitar melodies, she tells powerful stories through her lyrics. The best songs on the album are: Lights Out, S.O.B., The Road Between and Nobody Noticed It. The most interesting song on the album is: Indifferent, which has heavy influences of Garbage (Shirley Manson) with industrial chords and sounds, plus her vocal style matches Shirley Manson's in this song. The hidden track (better listen to the WHOLE ALBUM) is laid back and effective as a closing tune.
I'm very pleased I took an early lunch to run to the record store and buy this. I've played it three times so far and love more each spin...
Way to go Lisa Marie! You've found your calling!
