What’s not to love about a couple of cute chicks one of which is a killer slide guitar player, riding around in a vintage Cadillac and singing a killer tune. If there was a “love it” button I’d hit it twice.
Meet Larkin Poe.
Twitter recommended them to me, why, I have no idea but they only have 600 some followers. How is that possible? You need to go follow them and then, buy their record and go their show when they come to town.
If they look familiar, it’s because they used to be called the Lovell Sisters.(because that’s their actual name)
Here’s the backstory from their site:
In their early-teens, after winning a prestigious award on Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion on NPR, the then called “Lovell Sisters” toured internationally – from the stage of the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN to Bonnaroo. At the beginning of 2010, after saying ‘farewell’ to The Lovell Sisters, the musical story of Rebecca and Megan’s young adulthood began in the form of a new band: Larkin Poe.
It’s nice to see a group take a turn for the better after being embraced and glammed up by the Nashvegas Glitterati. These girls took the bull by the horns, turned in a new direction, and I couldn’t love that new direction more. Good solid soulful southern rock, with an alt country under tone without trying to be Steve Earle 2.0 or Wilco 3.0. It’s good stuff. We likey!
This weekend on May 19th they will be performing at Lulu’s in Gulf Shores. A place we always make sure to visit when we stay at Kiva Dunes, love Lulu’s too. Fish on!
