Lisa Marie Presley whose critically acclaimed album ‘Storm & Grace’, her first new record in 7 years, set to be released on October 15th in the UK, has announced her first ever UK gig on October 4th at London’s Bush Hall.
Tickets are priced at £29.50 and will go on sale from 9.30 am on Wednesday, September 26th.
It's a quiet Monday night in Soho and we somehow find ourselves at what must surely be the most exclusive gig in town. We arrive in time for folk stalwart, Polly Paulusma, the small British girl with a southern American soul. She begins with 'Last Week Me', a catchy ear-worm of a tune that burrows into the brain and will have you humming, "I'll be happy as a little mayfly" for days on end. Vocally, she's more reminiscent of Dolly Parton and the Grand Ole Opry tradition than anything springing from these shores, and is tonight accompanied by John on double bass.
Last week, i-D online joined Lisa Marie Presley in Soho as she debuted Storm and Grace, her haunting new goth blues album – which she wrote at her new home in England.
Lisa Marie has been reluctant to discuss the album's lyrics, but the therapeutic nature of Storm and Grace leaves little doubt. Her performance was as haunting as the album. Standing next to her husband and guitarist Michael Lockwood, she was dressed in a floor-length black dress and big black desert boots, her signature Memphis blow-dry as big as ever, and seemed as stripped down emotionally as her show was technically. And as Lisa Marie's tiny frame belted out those poignant lyrics, it was impossible not to get taken by this person, whose life has been shaped by the greatest musical legends to ever hit the planet.
