No strangers to the Bluesfest stage, the cosmic country soul of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real
are returning for 2019. Since forming 10 years ago, the 28-year old singer/songwriter/guitarist and his bandmates have played hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world and built a devoted underground following. Lukas’ profile continued to rise when he contributed three songs and heavenly vocals to his dad Willie Nelson’s 2012 album, ‘Heroes’, their voices blending with potent DNA.
Then two years later, life took another turn skyward when Neil Young decided to make Promise of the Real his touring and studio band. Young has guided the grateful young musicians ever since as they’ve backed the legend on tour around the world and on his two most recent albums. You might also recognise Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real from Lady Gaga’s ‘A Star Is Born’ which was released in September.
