Noisetrade Interviews Lukas

 

“Although Lukas Nelson has spent the last several years sharing the stage with both his legendary father (country icon Willie Nelson) and also Neil Young, he’s stepping out into his own spotlight with his new album Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. During our NoiseTrade One-on-One with the accomplished singer-songwriter-guitarist, Nelson discusses the rich multi-genre slant to his own songwriting, what it was like to have Lady Gaga and Lucius contribute vocals to his new album, what he’s learned from recording and touring with Neil Young, and much more!”

The San Francisco Chronicle Interviews Lukas

“Lukas Nelson is more than just Willie’s son. Ahead of the release of his band the Promise of the Real’s forthcoming self-titled album on Fantasy, the singer-songwriter opened up about life on the road, serving an apprenticeship as Neil Young’s backing band and working on Lady Gaga’s single “The Cure”— a favor she returns by appearing on two cuts on the new record. Nelson’s famous dad also makes an appearance on the LP, which is due on Aug. 25. In the meantime, the group is continuing its never-ending tour with a pair of Northern California dates. Nelson, 28, spoke to us from a stop in Colorado….”

STAGECOACH SPOTLIGHT ANNOUNCES TOUR FEATURING LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL AND NIKKI LANE

STAGECOACH SPOTLIGHT ANNOUNCES TOUR FEATURING LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL AND NIKKI LANE

Stagecoach Festival’s Stagecoach Spotlight Tour returns with festival standouts Lukas Nelson & Nikki Lane

LOS ANGELES, CA (July 31, 2017) – Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Nikki Lane will embark on a thirteen date Stagecoach Spotlight Tour kicking off November 1 in Chicago, and including a stop November 18 at the iconic Levon Helm Studios. Both artists performed at the 11th annual Stagecoach Country Music Festival this past April.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have quietly developed into one of America’s most dazzling new live acts, playing hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world, attracting a deeply devoted underground following.

Still, with a bounty of invaluable experience under their belts, nothing foretold the artistic leap of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real’s new, self-titled album; a mesmerizing, emotionally genuine, endlessly rewarding work of cosmic country soul set for release on August 25 via Fantasy Records. The new album includes twelve Lukas Nelson originals that draw on his country and rock lineage, including literate Texas songsmiths like his father, Willie Nelson and ‘uncles’ Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings, along with the enduring influence of J.J. Cale, The Band, Clapton-era Delaney & Bonnie and of course, his mentor Neil Young. Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the indie-pop group Lucius contribute background vocals on five tracks evoking Exile on Main St.’s ecstatic, gospel-rooted harmonies, and Lady Gaga added stirring background vocals to “Carolina” and “Find Yourself.” Listen to “Find Yourself,” “Forget About Georgia,” and “Set Me Down On A Cloud” HERE.

Nikki Lane’s critically acclaimed third album, Highway Queen, is out now via New West Records. Highway Queen sees the young Nashville singer emerge as one of country and rock’s most gifted songwriters. Blending potent lyrics, unbridled blues guitars and vintage Sixties country-pop swagger, Lane’s music resonates as easily with Lana Del Rey and Jenny Lewis fans as those of Neil Young and Tom Petty.  Noisey praised, “Highway Queen is a forceful, rollicking collection of fiery country tunes that places [Lane] toe-to-toe with any outlaw in Nashville,” adding, “it’s her best yet.” The album has garnered mid-year “Best Of” accolades from Rolling Stone Country, UPROXX, Wide Open Country, and The Boot. Watch Lane perform the first single “Jackpot” from Loretta Lynn’s historic home in Hurricane Mills during her recent appearance on CBS This Morning Saturday HERE.

“We have seen some incredible strides by Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real over the past year and this new record seems to be something truly special. We have been discussing doing something together for a long time and we have decided now is the time,” said Stacy Vee, talent buyer for Stagecoach and the Stagecoach Spotlight Tour. “We also decided our work with Nikki Lane was far from done so we asked her to come along. This tour will be one for the storybooks!”

LUKAS NELSON & PROMISE OF THE REAL SET TO RELEASE NEW, SELF-TITLED ALBUM AUGUST 25th VIA FANTASY

Since their formation as teenagers 10 years ago, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have quietly developed into one of America’s most dazzling new live acts, playing hundreds of shows and major festivals all over the world, attracting a deeply devoted underground following.

Still, with a bounty of invaluable experience under their belts, nothing foretold the artistic leap of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real their new, self-titled album, a mesmerizing, emotionally genuine, endlessly rewarding work of cosmic country soul set for release on August 25th, 2017 via Fantasy Records.

Recorded at The Village Studios in West Los Angeles Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real was produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer) and features the band’s new six-piece line-up: Lukas Nelson (guitar, vocals), Tato Melgar (percussion), Anthony LoGerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass, vocals) along with new members Jesse Siebenberg (steel guitars, Farfisa organ, vocals) and Alberto Bof (piano, Wurlitzer, B3). Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the indie-pop group Lucius contribute background vocals on five tracks evoking Exile on Main St.’s ecstatic, gospel-rooted harmonies, and Lady Gaga added stirring background vocals to “Carolina” and “Find Yourself.” Elsewhere, the lilting, Glen Campbell inspired gem, “Just Outside of Austin” features a guitar solo from Lukas’ dad, country music icon Willie Nelson, and piano from his 86-year-old Aunt Bobbi.

The new album includes 12 Lukas Nelson originals that draw on his country and rock lineage including literate Texas songsmiths like his father and ‘uncles’ Kris Kristofferson and Waylon Jennings, along with the enduring influence of J.J. Cale, The Band, Clapton-era Delaney & Bonnie and of course, his mentor Neil Young.

Young, an essential member of the POTR family, met the band after he caught them at Farm Aid several years back. “Neil got in touch after that, and we started talking by email,” Lukas recounts. “Eventually, he asked us to record with him. We fell in love with each other musically, one thing led to another and we became Neil’s band.”

“I knew I had a lot of good songs that transcended the cultural boundaries between rock & roll and country,” Lukas says of his vision for the album. “We owe a lot to Neil; we made this record after coming off the road with him for two years. Neil’s been mentoring us, and we’ve been absorbing that energy, and I think it shows. We got acclimated to a different level of artistic expression. I wanted to get the songs as pure as they could be. We’ve grown.”

“Set Me Down on a Cloud,” the soulful, country-rock epic that opens the album features Lucious’ angelic background vocals and Lukas’ lovely, lyrical guitar solo as the band stretches out behind him. “Forget About Georgia” unfolds to a “Layla”-like outpouring of yearning, as it vividly retraces the turbulent, bittersweet final stages of a doomed love affair. Lukas delivers a full-throttle vocal on the closing track, “If I Started Over,” a Roy Orbison-inspired rumination of tender devotion. The R&B grind of “Find Yourself” is a particular triumph as Lukas and Lady Gaga weave an impassioned, romantic ultimatum.

Currently on tour with Sheryl Crow, Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real will be burning up stages throughout 2017 including multiple Outlaw Music Festival dates (with Willie Nelson & Family, Bob Dylan, The Avett Brothers, Sheryl Crow, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit, My Morning Jacket, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats and Margo Price), Austin City Limits Festival, Farm Aid and Milwaukee’s SummerFest. The band is also set for shows alongside Gary Clark Jr. and Nicki Bluhm. Additionally, Lukas Nelson & Promise will headline the Bowery Ballroom in New York City on September 5th.
