Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Lukas Autry Nelson began his career in the early 2000s playing shows with his father, country music legend Willie Nelson.
Born in Austin, Texas and raised in Maui, Hawaii, Lukas began playing guitar at a young age in an attempt to better connect with his hard-touring father. By the age of 13, he had joined his father's band, touring as his rhythm guitarist and learning the stagecraft that would eventually carry him into his own career. After moving to Los Angeles to attend Loyola Marymount University in 2007, he met drummer Anthony LoGerfo, with whom he formed the band Promise of the Real in 2008. Once again joining his father on tour, this time as the opening act, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real self-released their Brando's Paradise Sessions EP, which featured artwork by Lukas' brother Micah Nelson, in 2009. The band would become Lukas' primary musical outlet over the coming years, yielding a pair of full-length LPs in 2010 and 2012. Self-described as "cowboy hippie surf rock," the band's style pulled from two of Lukas' primary influences, Jimi Hendrix and Neil Young. While continuing to pursue his own career, Lukas remained closely intertwined with his father's music, often opening for him, then playing the next set in Willie's band. The two worked together on Willie's 2012 album, Heroes, which featured a number of father-and-son vocal-and-guitar duets. For his next project, Lukas, Micah, and Promise of the Real collaborated with Neil Young on the 2015 album, The Monsanto Years. Following its release, Promise of the Real joined Young as his touring band. By 2016, Lukas and his band had hit the road again on their own to promote their new album, Something Real. That album was followed swiftly in August 2017 with Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
