Lukas Nelson has spent ten years on the road, honing his craft onstage with his father Willie Nelson and with his band Promise of the Real, who’ve backed Neil Young since 2014. Summer 2017 looks to be his big breakout moment…on live dates alongside Sheryl Crow, Gary Clark Jr. (pictured above with Lukas), Bob Dylan, Margo Price, Jason Isbell, and more, he’s been receiving rave reviews!
After a performance at the Outlaw Music Festival, Rolling Stone stated…
Lukas Nelson’s live show is a thing to behold, full of frenetic energy and the singer-guitarist’s infectious charisma.” Uproxx called Lukas “a force to be reckoned with,” both with Promise of the Real and while joining his dad for a “jaw-dropping” cover of “Texas Flood.” The Oakland Press called him “the show’s MVP and a star in the making – if not already there.”
Last week Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real announced their forthcoming self-titled album (due out August 25th via Fantasy), which features contributions from Lady Gaga and Lucius.
