Bluesfest Touring is proud to present Larkin Poe, the American Blues-Rock band who will be performing their gritty, soulful, southern heritage in Melbourne and Sydney this April. Originally from Atlanta, the now Nashville based sister duo are poised to make a mark all their own with the release of their fourth album Venom & Faith which is out this November 9, 2018. According to Rebecca Lovell, "It's a celebration of American roots music as translated by two sisters who are playing the blues in a modern age."

Unbound by tawdry embellishments, Larkin Poe infuse pop sensibilities into their sound, blending old-school elements of rock and soul with drum samples, hip-hop production values, and resonant lyrics like ‘California king-sized dreams in a twin bed’. Venom & Faith redefines what it means to make emotionally resonant music while also maintaining boundary-pushing musicality.

Rebecca & Megan Lovell, the multi-instrumentalist sister duo are descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Alan Poe and ‘Larkin Poe ’was the name of the sisters’ great-great-great grandfather. The sisters began their musical careers in 2005 as teenagers with the formation of a Bluegrass-Americana group, before forming Larkin Poe some years later. In 2014, the pair debuted with “KIN” and they quickly established themselves as a singular new sound in Roots Rock. Blending Haim-esque vocals with guitar riffs, helping them accumulate backing musician slots for artists such as Elvis Costello and Conor Oberst and performing on stages at the 2014 and 2016 Glastonbury Festival as well as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.

Creating their own brand of Roots Rock ‘n’ Roll: gritty, soulful, and flavoured by their southern heritage, Larkin Poe are on the rise and rise. Don’t miss their sideshows in Sydney and Melbourne in 2019.
