Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real were formed almost 10 years ago by Lucas Nelson, the son of the country music legend Willie Nelson. Since then, they have released 4 studio albums (counting the new one) under that moniker; one can add the studio album they released with Neil Young in 2015 to that catalogue as well. The cooperation with the renowned Neil Young started in 2014, when Neil recruited Promise Of The Real to be his road and studio band.
 
The band has an updated line-up which consists of (the old ones) Lukas Nelson on guitar & vocals, Tato Melgar on percussion, Anthony LoGerfo on drums, Corey McCormick on bass, vocals along with the new members Jesse Siebenberg on steel guitars, Farfisa organ, vocals and Alberto Bof on piano, Wurlitzer, B3. The production is crystal clear and full, the album was recorded at The Village Studios in West Los Angeles and it was produced by John Alagia (Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer). The well-known Stefani Germanotta (aka Lady Gaga) added stirring background vocals to “Carolina” and “Find Yourself”, while Jess Wolfe and Holly Lessig of the Brooklyn-based indie-pop group Lucius contributed background vocals to five tracks evoking Exile on Main St.’s ecstatic, gospel-rooted harmonies. Moreover, the track “Just Outside of Austin” features a guitar solo from Lukas’ dad, Willie Nelson, and piano from his 86-year-old aunt Bobbi.
 
Musically, the album can be described as an amalgam of folk-rock, country rock, Americana, pop/rock, blues rock and acoustic rock on the whole. The tracks are mostly mid-tempo and the music is laid back in general. This is a rather fine, positive & cool album that will make you relax somehow and forget about your everyday-life problems. Hence, if you fancy this kind of music, you should check it out without ado…
