Biography

In a genre as storied as American roots and soul, Larkin Poe made a mark all their own with the 2018 release of their fourth album Venom & Faith, which has just earned the sister duo their first ever GRAMMY® Award nomination for “Best Contemporary Blues Album.” Recorded in Nashville in 2018, in between headline shows, festival dates such as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza, and a featured guest performer spot on Keith Urban’s Graffiti U world tour, the album reached #1 on Billboard’s “Top Blues Albums” chart amidst critical acclaim from Billboard, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, Taste of Country, Paste, NPR, Uncut, and many more.

“As independent, self-produced artists, we feel incredibly honored and empowered to have received this Grammy nomination,” says slide guitarist/singer Megan Lovell. “As sisters, we invested so much of ourselves into this project with our engineer, Roger Alan Nichols, so to get recognition for all of our hard work feels really good. We really appreciate the support of Blues lovers around the world who have gathered around us in 2019 as we continue to push the genre of Roots American music.”

Venom & Faith is highlighted by such extraordinary singles as “Honey Honey,” “Bleach Blonde Bottle Blues,” and “Hard Time Killing Floor Blues,” all of which are joined by official companion videos streaming now at the official Larkin Poe YouTube channel.

Since forming in 2010, Larkin Poe has proven a formidable duo both in and out of the studio. In 2014, producer T-Bone Burnett enlisted Rebecca and Megan for Lost On The River: The New Basement Tapes, a project that also saw contributions from Marcus Mumford (Mumford & Sons) Elvis Costello, Jim James (My Morning Jacket), Taylor Goldsmith (Dawes), and Rhiannon Giddens. 2017’s Peach showcased the Lowell sisters’ mastery in orchestrating, harmonizing and breathing new life into the musical heritage of their upbringing, earning a Blues Music Award nomination for “Best Emerging Artist Album” alongside international critical applause.

Steeped in the traditions of Southern music but determined to create their own modern-day depiction of blues-based roots rock, Larkin Poe have been hailed for their confident, soulful live performances, including performances at such esteemed festivals as Glastonbury (twice) and Newport Folk Festival, stints both supporting and backing Elvis Costello and Conor Oberst, and tours alongside the likes of Gary Clark Jr. Rebecca and Megan were also members of the all-star backing band for the 2017 MusiCares Person Of The Year tribute honoring Tom Petty (also organized by Burnett) alongside Jakob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Elle King, Lucinda Williams, Gary Clark Jr., Don Henley, and Randy Newman.
