UNQUIET LIFE:

LANA DEL REY PERFORMS IN THE CURRENT STUDIO (Steve Seel, 3/15/12, Minnesota Public Radio)

Lana Del Rey has had to deal with this unremitting dialogue on her image and back-story, often times threatening to overshadow her passion for songwriting. For Grant, none of this conversation so much matters -- it's a good path for anyone who has an inspiration and acts on it: do what you love, make mistakes and disregard those who lack a sense of encouragement.

Her newest record was largely heard ahead of its release on YouTube and at intimate live shows, a unique set-up for an album which has now gone on to hit number one in a handful of countries and the top 10 in dozens more. For an artist who edited the famous "Video Games" in a trailer park in Jersey during her early-20s, that feeling of world-wide impact will forever be ingrained.

Songs performed: "Video Games," "Blue Jeans," and "Million Dollar Man"
