Nelle Porter-Jones has assembled a solid band with a huge talent. Mining modern American musical styles such as blues, country, folk, and roots, Stay the Plow is drawing crowds from all over New York. What their fans are loving is how Nellie and STP delve into Americana, but also early Jazz, bluegrass and swing (and maybe some rock).
Nelle and her bandmates connect, they are easy and fun. Setting each song up with personal asides and inside jokes that everyone in the crowd is in on. The original songs are catchy, powerful, and gorgeous but they also dig deep into the current and past Americana and Country Song Book. Stay the Plow covers Cash, Patsy, Emmy Lou as well-loved traditional pieces in their unique style.
