Celebrating Grammy Nominees: Larkin Poe


To celebrate their first-ever GRAMMY Award® nomination at this year’s 62nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards, Best Contemporary Blues Album nominees Larkin Poe joined us at the GRAMMY Museum on January 21, 2020 for an in-depth conversation and performance moderated by Scott Goldman

Critically acclaimed sister duo Larkin Poe recorded their self-produced, chart-topping fourth album Venom & Faith, which has been nominated for a GRAMMY Award in the Contemporary Blues Album Category at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards, in Nashville in 2018. The album reached #1 on Billboard’s “Top Blues Albums” chart amidst critical acclaim from Billboard, Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, Taste of Country, Paste and many more. Steeped in the traditions of Southern music but determined to create their own modern-day depiction of blues-based roots rock, Venom & Faith showcases Megan and Rebecca Lovell’s mastery in orchestrating, harmonizing and breathing new life into the musical heritage of their upbringing.

Larkin Poe named the band after their great-great-great-grandfather, a distant cousin of writer Edgar Allan Poe. Since forming in 2010, Larkin Poe have proven a formidable duo both in and out of the studio. The sisters have opened for and been in the backing band of Elvis Costello and Conor Oberst, and were featured guest performers on Keith Urban’s Graffiti U world tour. Rebecca and Megan were also members of the all-star backing band for the 2017 MusiCares Person Of The Year tribute honoring Tom Petty. Larkin Poe will spend much of 2020 on the road, with wide-ranging tour dates around the globe spanning headline shows, festival appearances, and much more.
