David Earl and the Plowshares / Bio

David Earl Tomlinson is among Asheville, North Carolina's more soulful singers and performers. Cutting his teeth as the token white guy singing gospel in the Kuumba and David Band, David Earl quickly gained a reputation as one to watch.

As the Kuumba and David Band gave way to The Plowshares the focus switched to David Earl's very strong original material. The 2008 EP 'Local Anesthesia' was rated the 17th favorite regional release by the listeners of the local NPR station WNCW, and the band was among performers featured in a 2009 Summer primer of bands not to miss in WNC Magazine.

After a short hiatus David Earl is back with an extended original rock and roll setlist and band with phenomenal talent and experience.

Drummer Chris Pyle has a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame bloodline and was a member of Royal Trux signed to Drag City and Virgin Records. When he was seven years old he went on Tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd and watched his dad and all of his friends snort coke and smash whiskey bottles on each others heads.

Silas 'the Stylist' Durocher is a fan of the Beatles and Led Zeppelin who happens to compose for and perform with the Sarasota Symphony Orchestra. In his bare feet.

Bassist Matt Lane is the secret weapon of the band who happens to have an extensive knowledge of wine and gourmet food.

The Plowshares are back and ready to leave smilin' sweaty crowds in their wake.
