The Los Angeles Times talks to Lukas
Lukas Nelson, on his way to Stagecoach with Promise of the Real, talks Gaga, Neil Young and serendipity
“The spreadsheet-like intensity of his schedule sits just fine with this scion of country music titan Willie Nelson. For years, he has been pegged for stardom by those who have seen him, either sitting in with his famous dad’s Family band; guesting (at age 20) with Dylan no less back in 2009 on tour with his father and John Mellencamp; and supporting Young or playing his own gigs.
If it weren’t enough that he has echoes of his father’s uniquely expressive, idiosyncratic vocal style (just listen to his version of his dad’s song “Funny [How Time Slips Away]”) and his gift for writing evocative portraits of real-life situations in song, Nelson also is blessed with movie-star looks and a facility with a guitar that has caught the ear of many of pop music’s most respected figures.” – Randy Lewis, LA Times 4/25/2018
