First Annual Artist Leadership Award to Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real

Project AMPLIFI is proud to announce the presentation of our first annual Artist Leadership Award to Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real. With this award we express our gratitude to the artists for their contributions to remedying the great social and environmental challenges of our time. We also hope that ever more musicians will be inspired to find their voice, speaking out for good works that make the world a better place.

Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real are outstanding musicians and positive role models for any generation. They are dedicated to Giving Back to many important organizations, from Farm Aid to the AIDS Service Center to Jobs for Autism, through benefit concerts and public outreach.

Project AMPLIFI knows that music has tremendous power to move the human spirit. Musicians can use their craft to inspire love, passion, and a whole rainbow of emotions. They can also have a huge impact by inspiring and motivating us to consider how we each make a positive contribution in our communities and in the broader world around us.

With many thousands of followers, Lukas and POTR use social media to do good every day by raising awareness about critical issues, such as protecting endangered elephants from poaching, or responding to horrific gun violence and international terrorism with positive messages of love and compassion.

With the support of a grant from the Bill Graham Foundation, we had this award handcrafted by Martijn Stiphout, master craftsman and board designer for Ventana Surfboards & Supplies. We were thrilled to present this award during the artists’ two-day tenure at our partner venue, Smiley’s Saloon and Hotel.
