Based in Texas, Promise of the Real is made up of Lukas Nelson (lead vocals, guitar), Anthony LoGerfo (drums), Corey McCormick (bass), Tato Melgar (percussion) and Logan Metz (multi-instrumentalist). Since their debut over a decade ago, the acclaimed band has been crossing the globe, playing thousands of shows as one of the most talented, in-demand rock and roll ensembles working today. Having been on the bill with legendary artists, The Rolling Stones and Neil Young (as his backing band), toured alongside Zac Brown Band, and played countless sold-out solo shows, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have sharpened the edges of their singular sound, straddling rock and roll, country, soul, and folk. An emergent and vital force in American music, their latest album, A Few Stars Apart (release June 11, 2021) is already one of Rolling Stone’s “Most Anticipated Albums of 2021”. The quickly rising quintet have been wowing audiences and gaining fans with their upcoming headlining tour and blistering television performances. They have turned in star-making sets at major festivals including Stagecoach, The Byron Bay Bluesfest, Newport Folk Festival, New Orleans Jazz Fest, and dozens of shows as part of Willie Nelson’s traveling Outlaw Music Festival.
