Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real (POTR) will be at Hal & Mal’s Friday, May 6! Doors open at 7pm.

A Few Stars Apart, the new album from Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, is a testament to finding a human connection: between close family and friends, as well as one’s own heart. These 11 songs reveal what it means to come home again, to be still, and to find community–and yourself.

Riding out the beginning of the pandemic with his parents and brother, Grammy Award-winning Nelson was forced to hit pause in 2020 for the first time in his life. He and his acclaimed band had toured relentlessly for more than a decade, playing countless sold-out one-night shows and festivals around the world and occasionally serving as Neil Young’s road band. for the longest stretch of time in his life, Nelson was forced to find stillness, connection, and inspiration in life’s simplest joys.

“It took me a really long time to come back to the home in my heart. In a physical sense, that’s Texas and Hawaii. But in a spiritual sense as well–I think I finally decided not to run from who I am and who I am destined to be,”says Nelson. “First and foremost, that’s a songwriter. That’s what this record means to me. There’s a story being told through the whole record. A story about connection and coming home.”
