Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe are singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist sisters creating their own brand of gritty, soulful, distinctly southern rock and roll. Their fourth record, Venom & Faith, released in 2019 on Tricki-Woo Records, was nominated for a GRAMMY® Award.
Steeped in the traditions of Southern roots music, the Georgia-bred, Nashville-based duo’s performances showcase their mastery in orchestrating, harmonizing, and breathing new life into the musical heritage of their upbringing. 2017’s Peach, which was nominated for a Blues Music Award for Best Emerging Artist Album, was recorded and produced entirely by the sisters along with their engineer Roger Alan Nichols. Peach featured a mix of original songs and covers like Lead Belly’s “Black Betty.” The making of Peach unlocked a gateway into Rebecca and Megan’s newfound confidence in their art and their history.
The group’s crowd-pleasing performances and stellar studio work is augmented by a bit of marketing genius that’s born of their appreciation for their musical forbearers as well as a knack for innovative use of down time as they tour. The band’s “Tip o’ the Hat Video Series” features familiar cover tunes by artists ranging from Aerosmith, Rod Stewart, and Tom Petty to blues icons Son House, B.B. King, and Howlin’ Wolf. Their cover of Chuck Berry’s Johnny B. Goode has garnered almost 600,000 views.
