Singer, songwriter and guitarist Lukas Nelson is just as cool as you’d expect a Maui-raised son of Willie Nelson to be — and as talented as a musician recruited by Neil Young to play in his band.

The younger Nelson has already had a lifetime’s worth of extraordinary experiences, but he is just getting started with his band, Promise Of The Real. With a decade of heavy touring and a handful of albums already under their belt, the now six-piece group has released a self-titled album for 2017 that boasts their strongest songs. It's also elevated by vocal backing from not only Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Lucius, but Lady Gaga to boot.

Let’s enjoy some music and conversation with Nelson and his bandmates in this FUV Live session.

[recorded: 9/7/17]
