How I unwind: Lisa Marie Presley

She has one of the most famous surnames in showbusiness but it's a lesser-known fact that Lisa Marie Presley has carved out her own career in music. As the only child of Elvis, she has led a life that has given the gossip magazines plenty of fodder, from her marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage, to her interest in Scientology. But now, at 46, she's enjoying a relatively stable, normal life in a small village in England with her husband, music producer Michael Lockwood, and their twin daughters, Finley and Harper, 5. She's touring her third album, the rootsy Storm & Grace, which she worked on with Grammy Award-winner T Bone Burnett.

I love touring …

I adore it. I love being busy. I love the work. I love the interaction with the crowd, with the fans. I do meet-and-greets a lot, so I get to hear what I or my music has done to help them, and it gives me a lift, a good high. It could be anything from getting them through a death in the family, serious illness, chemotherapy, cancer - anything and everything on those fronts. It always makes me feel better and makes me happy I could do that. I have a very paternal relationship with T Bone

Burnett …

He's so inspiring for me. I was really knocked down a bit, I had been through a lot, and I wrote the record [Storm & Grace] and I was kind of sitting on the songs. I wasn't really planning on doing much with them. He really took me under his wing and I felt protected, and he gave me so much confidence.

We've really made a home in England …

I have my local pub, we have neighbours, we have friends that we've made there that are just dear, dear, dear friends that I never thought I would make in a million years. I love cooking and I love gardening. My husband got me a couple of horses for Christmas and I was trying to take that up before I left [for the tour]. Things are just very, very simple and normal, and I love that.

The best advice I was ever given about a career in music …

Was something David Bowie said to me. He came to a show and freaked me out because I was such a fan, and said to me, ''Don't let them throw you into this too quickly and too harshly, and don't get out of your comfort zone''. He wanted me to build, and not be thrown into this big, giant scenario, which is kind of what I was getting into on the first record [To Whom it May Not Concern in 2003]. I think he saw that I was overwhelmed. I didn't have time to get stage legs and build a following. I jumped off the deep end into the deepest water out there. When he said make sure things are done at the proper pace, that you're comfortable with it, and it will break your heart if things are too quick for you, it was correct information.

The constant references to my father are …

Something that I've learnt to deal with. Believe it or not, it doesn't affect me in a negative way. I have managed to get my own fanbase. I think if I hadn't managed that, I don't know I could continue if people are just coming to see a replica of him. I know for a fact I have fans of my own and my own following, and if I didn't, I don't think it would be as easy.

We had a very special thing happen the other night …

James Burton [famed US guitarist who performed with Elvis] joined me on stage in Fort Worth, Texas, to do a couple of my songs with me, and it was mind- blowingly special … So it's not something I fight [the connection to her father] and something that I don't like - but there's a good balance, is what I'm saying. I do have my own thing going on. If I didn't, it would be harder.

If I wasn't a musician …

I would be a doctor or nurse, because I know way too much about things … like that. I was a hypochondriac for a good portion of my life and I picked up a lot [of information]. So people come to me if they have an ailment, and I know what it is and I can explain it to them. And I don't get grossed out by needles or taking blood. My husband flips out and he doesn't understand why I don't freak out, but I just don't.

It's really hard for me to unwind …

I can't do it, sadly. Before shows I do try to meditate a little bit and keep everything really calm around me. But I can't really unwind naturally, which is sad. As you get older, it gets a little tougher. It requires a cocktail here and there [laughs].
