Larkin Poe

Rebecca and Megan Lovell of Larkin Poe are singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist sisters creating their brand of Roots Rock 'n' Roll: gritty, soulful, and flavored by their southern heritage. Originally from Atlanta and currently living in Nashville, they are descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Allan Poe. Starting as a trio of sisters playing the folk and bluegrass circles, Rebecca and Megan share the beginnings of their music, path, and even how they've become who they are today. Larkin Poe in recent years started their own Tricki-Woo Records and has received Grammy nods which would confirm that they are, "self-made wo-men."  Blues and rock have a history of irony and speaking for the disenfranchised, so why would their music be any different? We discuss the insidiousness of the issues that the band put under a microscope in their songs from their newest album Self Made Man, and how they're flipping the script of how the disenfranchised characters that have been a staple in media are now the empowered voices of a new generation.
