Lisa Marie Presley (born February 1, 1968) is an American singer and songwriter, also known as the “Princess of Rock and Roll.” She is the only child of Elvis Presley, and daughter of Priscilla Presley. Presley was born at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, exactly nine months after her parents' wedding. She lived at Graceland, Elvis' Memphis estate, until her parents separated in 1972. Following their separation and subsequent divorce, she divided her time between living at Graceland with her father and in Beverly Hills with her mother. This arrangement continued until her father died on August 16, 1977, after which she lived exclusively in Beverly Hills.

In April 2003, Presley released her debut album, “To Whom It May Concern.” It reached #5 on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and was certified gold in June 2003. Presley wrote all the lyrics (except “The Road Between,” which was co-written with Gus Black) and co-wrote every melody. The album's first single, “Lights Out,” reached #18 on the Billboard Hot Adult Top 40 chart and #16 on the U.K. Singles chart.

Her second album, released in April 2005 “Now What,” reached #9 on the Billboard 200. It was certified gold in November 2005. Presley co-wrote 10 songs and recorded covers of Don Henley's “Dirty Laundry” (the album's first single, which hit #36 on the Billboard 100 AC Singles chart), and the Ramones' “Here Today and Gone Tomorrow.” The song "Idiot" is a jab towards different men in her life. By 2006, both “To Whom It May Concern” and “Now What” have been certified platinum.

Her third album, “Storm & Grace,” was issued in 2012. It was produced by Oscar and Grammy-winner T-Bone Burnett. The album debuted at #45 on the Billboard 200 and at #21 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart. It featured the lead single, “You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet.”
