Promise of the Real

So I knew that Willie Nelson had several kids. I was unaware that he had a 21 year old son that was playing Leno tonight and is a pretty damn good blues player. Willie Nelson is one of my all time favorite musicians, singers, and guitar players. Even if his son was a crappy musician living off his dad's coat tails I'm pretty sure I would be a fan. But this kid is talented. Lukas Nelson is his name. The Promise of the Real is his band. I've just discovered him myself about 30 minutes ago. Listening to him sing you can tell he's Willie Nelsons son. Watching him play guitar you can tell he was influenced by Jimi Hendrix, and SRV among others. My favorite guitar player of all time is Mr. Stevie Ray. So I just discovered the son of my favorite singer can play guitar with a SRV vibe at times. He's coming to Austin in February. I think i'm going to have to be there. Here's some of the clips I watched. and his myspace page has some tunes you can listen too also.
