Some of Soul Plow’s five members played in local ’80s and ’90s bands Incognito and Sauce. Their all-original, bluesy, country rock has drawn comparisons to Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Allman Brothers. A debut single “All in Good Time” is described by the band thusly: “Picture the evil emperor sitting in a sweltering trailer in Bonsall, working off the DTs with warm PBR while he reflects.”
According to guitarist Ben Jones, “Our best gig ever was opening for the Arc Angels and hanging out with Chris Leighton. It’s the only time I’ve ever seen our drummer Jesse [Adams] flustered.”
In 2011, it was announced that Adams was battling stage 4 cancer.
