Larkin Poe have found their voice. In a genre as storied as American roots and soul, the sister duo is poised to make a mark all their own with the release of their fourth album Venom & Faith, out November 9. Rather than concede to the history of the canon they hold dear or rest on their laurels, Larkin Poe persists and emerge rattling, stomping, and sliding into a modern-day depiction of what roots rock should sound like. Another chapter in an everlasting story.
“It’s a celebration of roots American music,” Rebecca says, “as translated by two sisters who are playing the blues in a modern age.”
Steeped in the traditions of Southern roots music the Georgia-bred, Nashville-based Rebecca and Megan Lovell showcased their mastery in orchestrating, harmonizing and breathing new life into the musical heritage of their upbringing with 2017’s Peach, which was nominated for a Blues Music Award for Best Emerging Artist Album. Recorded and produced entirely by the sisters and 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.
On Venom & Faith, the sisters once again tackle a majority of the instrumentation on the album. In addition to covering lead vocals and a wide range of musical instruments, Rebecca creates lush musical underpinnings that range from horn sections to hip hop drum elements. In tandem, Megan masterfully skewers the lap steel and twins her voice together with Rebecca’s to create their unique blend of sister harmony.
