Georgia sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe are carrying on the American roots tradition with their own innovative blend of blues, Americana, rock, and beats on their new album Peach. Flavored by their southern gothic heritage, the album is comprised of five original blues rock songs written by Megan and Rebecca, and five Traditional blues covers that are performed with their own unique take while giving a gracious nod to the past. Peach was produced and performed by Megan and Rebecca, and engineered and mixed by Roger Alan Nichols who has previously worked with the likes of Steven Tyler, Tyler Bryant and Paramore. Peach entered the Billboard Heatseekers Chart in the Top 20, and in the Top 10 on the Alternative iTunes Chart.
Earlier this year, Rebecca & Megan were asked by T-Bone Burnett to be part of the backing band for the MusiCares 2017 “Person of The Year” event honoring Tom Petty, and performed with such musical luminaries as Jakob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Elle King, Gary Clarke Jr., Don Henley, Randy Newman and Lucinda Williams. The process of learning 40 Tom Petty songs inspired Megan and Rebecca to keep furthering their musical prowess by covering classic bands and Traditional blues songs on social media. Within five months, their video posts had been shared 200k times, they had amassed millions of views and 140k+ new Facebook followers.
In recent months, Larkin Poe has been the support act for Bob Seger on his arena tour. Megan and Rebecca have also previously hit the road opening for Gary Clarke Jr and Queen, and have been the opening and backing band for Conor Oberst, Kristian Bush (Sugarland) and Elvis Costello who praises that “they have a head start on the rest of us with the unique power and beauty of sibling harmony”. Larkin Poe have performed at England’s Glastonbury Festival twice, were named “Best Discovery of Glastonbury” by the Observer, recently performed at Pilgrimage and Newport Folk Festivals, and their electric and slide guitar riffs earned them the title of “little sisters of the Allman Brothers” among fans and followers. In 2016, Larkin Poe were invited to perform on CONAN.
