Larkin Poe

Musicians

Rebecca and Megan Lovell comprise the Nashville, by way of Atlanta, roots rock band Larkin Poe.  The sisters are descendants of the infamous writer Edgar Allan Poe and have shared stages with Elvis Costello, Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes, and many more.  Vogue Magazine called them "nearly perfect musicians" who also "manage to add a new passion, modernity, and elegant coolness to the genre of Rock."  In 2014, Rebecca and Megan appeared on Lost On The River, the debut album by The Basement Tapes, a super group comprised of Elvis Costello, Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons, Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, and Rhiannon Giddens.  The record was produced by T Bone Burnett with songs based on previously unseen lyrics written by Bob Dylan in the late 60s.  The album also featured the actor Johnny Depp, Danielle, Alana, & Este Haim, Binki Shapiro of Little Joy and more.  NPR Music called Larkin Poe a "sister act with staying power," and they recently released their third album, Peach, at the end of September to critical acclaim.  This is Rebecca and Megan's Fidelity High:  Heart // Dreamboat Annie // Mushroom Records // 1976.  Rebecca and Megan say, "Heart's Dreamboat Annie was one of the very first rock records we remember listening to as children. While our mother was playing Bach and Mozart cassettes in the family minivan, our father was pumping us full of Fleetwood Mac, Led Zeppelin, and Heart. Since that first listening experience of 'Crazy On You,' we've each spent the last ten years working to become a hybrid of Anne and Nancy: Anne's power voice and Nancy's guitar skills. As sisters, we couldn't ask for a better sister rock-duo role model."
