Michael Dean Lockwood (born May 22, 1961) is an American guitarist and producer, a native of Hawthorne, California, best known for producing and performing with Lisa Marie Presley, Aimee Mann and Fiona Apple among others.
Lockwood graduated from Highland High School in Bakersfield, California in 1979. He has worked with Carly Simon, Fiona Apple, Bijou Phillips, Alana Davis, Ben Taylor, Leona Naess, Susanna Hoffs and Michael Penn. In 1985 Lockwood joined the already established but yet unsigned Hollywood group Lions & Ghosts. They were later signed to EMI America Records and recorded their first album in London. They disbanded in 1989 after a second record was released and several members had changed. He formed a local power pop band Wink with Michael Marquesen, Tony Babylon, & Brian Keats.
He married Lisa Marie Presley in a small ceremony in Kyoto, Japan on January 22, 2006. Michael and Lisa Marie had fraternal twin girls via Caesarean section, weighing 5 pounds 2 ounces and 5 pounds 15 ounces respectively, at birth. The twins, Harper and Finley, are the first and second children for Michael, and the third and fourth for Lisa Marie. In June 2016, the couple filed for divorce.
Lockwood was the main guitarist for Lisa Marie's 'Storm & Grace' tour, that started on June 14, 2012.
In a court appearance during the week of February 13, 2017, Lisa Marie opposed Lockwood's request for spousal support claiming that she had found hundreds of images and videos of child pornography on his personal computer.
Throughout his career Lockwood has worked with a wide range of artists and bands in various genres both as a musician & collaborator.
