After a remarkable two-year run that saw them earn a GRAMMY® Award nomination for their chart-topping studio album Venom & Faith while touring the world, Larkin Poe have returned with what is undeniably their most wide-reaching, artistically adventurous, and self-determined work to date, SELF MADE MAN.
Once again taking the producer reins and releasing on their own label, the album sees the multi-instrumentalist sister duo, comprised of the Atlanta-bred, Nashville-based Rebecca and Megan Lovell, pushing their music and message towards hitherto unexplored terrain, inspired by their epic world travels yet still powerfully rooted in the creative heritage of their beloved American South.Larkin Poe are now also gearing up to release KINDRED SPIRITS, a collection of stripped-back cover songs, out Nov. 20. Coming up in a family of music lovers, a lot of the songs Megan and Rebecca have always gravitated towards learning have been with them since childhood; after the sisters began a YouTube series dedicated to paying tribute to their musical heroes, they also started daydreaming about how an interpretive album might take shape. In recording Kindred Spirits, their admiration for the artists who originally wrote & performed the songs blossomed into an even deeper reverence. Stripping these songs back to the bones and recording them live and raw, felt like a ritual. Larkin Poe are grateful to the Kindred Spirits who have come before them and written the soundtrack of their lives.
