Willie Nelson, Lukas Nelson, Micah Nelson host At Home With Farm Aid broadcast (April 11, 2020)

Wednesday, April 8th, 2020

Willie Nelson and sons Lukas and Micah will host a broadcast of At Home with Farm Aid on Saturday, April 11 at 3 pm Mountain Standard Time. The live, hour-long performance will feature Farm Aid Board members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthew. The event is a special benefit concert for family farmers impacted by effects of COVID-19.

Farm Aid, the non-profit organization whose mission is to build a vibrant, family farm-centered system of agriculture in America and AXS TV, the premier U.S. cable channel for music programming, presents a special broadcast of an intimate performance.

The unique concert captures the quartet as they each tune in from their own homes and studios to deliver an unforgettable night of music that viewers will not want to miss.

At Home With Farm Aid airs as part of AXS TV’s new “@Home And Social” initiative-an ongoing series giving artists a platform to broadcast live performances from their homes and studios directly to their fans, with proceeds supporting those in need as a result of the coronavirus.

Viewers can enjoy the simulcast on AXS TV and at www.farmaid.org, as well as across the Network’s various social media platforms.

For more than three decades, Farm Aid has worked diligently to build a dynamic family farm-centered agricultural system benefiting farms both big and small. Now, with COVID-19 presenting farmers across the country with a new set of challenges to overcome, Farm Aid is responding immediately to invest in farmer-led solutions to the COVID-19 crisis; make emergency grants to farmers and ranchers in need; create comprehensive resources for farmers; connect farmers to legal, financial, and mental health support resources; support local, state, and national farm organizations; and advocate for COVID-19 recovery funds and resources from the federal government for short-term relief and long-term resilience.

“The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us. One of its many impacts is that it has helped us to better see the value of essential people like healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery truck drivers, and farmers and ranchers,” said Farm Aid president Willie Nelson.

“Farm Aid has worked for 35 years to build a family farm centered agricultural system, and we are here now to support farmers and ranchers in this crisis, without whom we could not eat. The time to build a resilient family farm food system is now!” 

“Farmers have given so much to America,” said Sarah Weidman, Head of Original Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “With COVID-19 putting the farming industry to the ultimate test, it’s our turn to give back. AXS TV is proud to continue our partnership with Farm Aid to bring our viewers this incredible event, hosted by four of rock, country, and folk’s most influential icons. We hope that it will provide some much-needed entertainment during this time, while also informing people everywhere of the crisis impacting our farmers, the essential services farmers bring us, and what people can do to help.”

Micah Nelson, “Particle Kid” has new album available March 27, 2020

Tuesday, March 24th, 2020

Particle Kid – the ingenious musical identity of Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, musician, and visual artist Micah Nelson – has announced the release of an immersive all-new concert recording.

LIVE! UNDERGROUND arrives via Overseas Artists Recordings (OAR) at all DSPs and streaming services on Friday, March 27th.

LIVE! UNDERGROUND was recorded last December by musician/engineer Bernie Larsen at his Ojai Underground Exchange in Ojai CA, mixed by Niko Bolas (Neil Young, Warren Zevon) at his Ventura, CA studio and then “fucked up” by Nelson on his own 4-track cassette machine, before finally being mastered by Bob Rice.

The album sees Particle Kid – that is, Nelson backed by longtime friends Tony Peluso (drums, SPDX, Juno 6) and Aroyn Davis (bass) – putting an expansive, remarkably spontaneous, new spin on songs originally found on what Rolling Stone has hailed as “a series of excellent, deeply adventurous albums,” including such fan favorites as “Radio Flyer,” “Still Going,” and “Everything Is Bullshit.” The striking cover and album art was created by Nelson.

Particle Kid debuted a limited number of physical CD copies of LIVE! UNDERGROUND on his west coast Cosmic Yarn Tour late last month. The band has spent much of the past two years on the road, including an epic 2019 tour alongside The Flaming Lips and The Claypool Lennon Delirium, as well as U.S. and European headline dates, performances at the Outlaw Music Festival, and shows with Willie Nelson, Neil Young + Promise of the Real, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.

Micah Nelson recently took part in the much-sought-after line-up for Luck Reunion’s streaming marathon music variety show, Til Further Notice. The six-hour virtual concert featured Neil Young, Paul Simon, Lucinda Williams, Margo Price, and many more, as well as Micah in a set with his dad, Willie Nelson, and brother, Lukas Nelson. Rolling Stone called their family-set “the highlight” for Luck Reunion’s “most emotional year yet – with no-crowd.” The Austin American-Statesman agreed naming their closing performance, which included two Particle Kid songs – “Everything is Bullshit” and “Wheels” – the “Best Musical Moment.”

Micah Nelson and Sunny War, “Sites and Sounds – Austin” (by Luck Reunion and Southwest Airlines)

Sites & Sounds Episode 2 Spotlights AustinWatch it here

Luck Productions and Southwest Airlines® are thrilled to reveal Sites & Sounds: Austin, the second installment in a three-part web series celebrating hometown influence on musicians and the destinations that have bred a culture of creativity.

Sites And Sounds Episode 2: Austin

The program serves as an artist-penned love letter to the places that inspired who they are; with each episode showcasing a “host” musician who welcomes a fellow artist to the location that has influenced them the most.

Episode two features Micah Nelson – son of Willie and lead musician in Particle Kid – who welcomes friend and frequent collaborator Sunny War to experience his original stomping grounds: Austin, Texas. The episode is live today at southwest.fm/sites-and-sounds.

Sites & Sounds: Austin invites viewers to join Micah as he shows Sunny his favorite haunts, including raw juice mecca JuiceLand; the popular Torchy’s Tacos; and Hopscotch, a pop-up interactive art installation that finds Micah and friends diving in to an immersive experience that is brilliantly reminiscent of the unique art-fueled mind space Nelson brings to life onstage as Particle Kid.

Fittingly, the episode follows the series’ debut installment which featured Micah’s brother Lukas Nelson, alongside Nikki Lane, in Maui, Hawaii. While the Nelson brothers moved to Maui from Austin at an early age, Micah maintains a strong connection to his hometown and has cultivated a handful of regular haunts, many of which are highlighted in the episode.

“What a wild few days. Especially that last day where we shot a whole music video at Hopscotch, ate at Torchy’s, blew a tire on the highway, but still made it back to Luck, TX. And the camera crew captured it all!”, said Micah Nelson.

“It was fun shooting with the Southwest crew. I will always cherish the first and, most likely last time I ate a huge burrito on camera,” Sunny War added.

Catch Sites & Sounds: Austin today on Southwest.fm and check out additional travel guide content on www.luckjournal.com. The episode will be available in Southwest Airlines’ in-flight portal in late fall.

Since joining forces in 2017, Southwest and Luck Reunion have dedicated their partnership to storytelling, and to lifting up artists who are making great moves on their own terms. Sites & Sounds is an extension of that vision: providing travelers and music lovers with an in-depth glimpse into the places that make artists tick. “Our partnership with Southwest is built on our collective mission to contribute to the artist narrative, and to share emerging artists’ stories in a compelling and honest way,” said Ellee Fletcher Durniak, co-founder of Luck Productions. “Sites & Sounds is our chance to bring this vision to life outside of the Luck Reunion, and we are genuinely proud to be on board with Southwest for this project.”

Sites & Sounds provides artists a chance to share the connection they feel to a destination and the role it has played in their life,” said Brandy King, Director of External Communications who oversees the airline’s Brand Partnerships and Entertainment Public Relations initiative. “Through our partnership with Luck Productions, we’re thrilled to be a part of sharing stories from these artists to highlight the places that have been a source of inspiration for their creative work. We hope these stories can inspire new adventures and travels for our Customers.”

The third and final episode will bring travel and music lovers to the Bay Area to explore Chuck Prophet’s beloved spots alongside his guest, Aaron Lee Tasjan.

Sites & Sounds will be available for music fans and our Customers to enjoy by visiting Southwest.fm/SitesandSounds. Like some of the places you see in the episodes? Visit LuckJournal.com for even more destination inspiration about the locations featured in the videos.
