She released three albums: To Whom It May Concern (2003), Now What (2005), and Storm & Grace (2012).

In 2018, her new record Where No One Stands Alone featured 14 original performances recorded by Elvis including a reimagined duet, in which she sang alongside her father – who died at the age of 42 in 1977.
