Larkin Poe joined the gang in-studio for an incredible performance and interview on Friday. For those that don’t know, Larkin Poe is a roots rock band from north Georgia. Fronted by sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell, their music features bluesy riffs and soulful vocals.
The two graced us with their lovely presence and talked about their rock n’ roll upbringing. They referred to themselves as “students of the blues.” They grew up on all things rock thanks to their parents, so they ditched their classical instruments and picked up “banjos and mandolins.”
Well, thank goodness they did! Their sixth album comes out on the 11th of November and they actually gave the gang a sneak peek (dedicated especially to Jacky Bam Bam) of one of their new tracks, “Strike Gold.” It’s so new, Rebecca even needed a lyric sheet! With its tight harmonies and featured slide guitar, the song is sure to be a big hit. Check out their live performances of “Holy Ghost Fire” and “Strike Gold”:
Speaking of Jacky Bam Bam…he, Casey, and Kyle checked in from Casey’s Big Adventure to hang with Larkin Poe as well. Just outside Los Angeles, Jacky was a bit bummed because he wanted to go record shopping with Rebecca and Megan next time they were in town…better luck next time Jacky! (Go enjoy the pacific ocean…)
Jacky asked Larkin Poe who the best band they have shared the stage with has been thus far. While it was hard to decide, Rebecca landed on Bob Seger. Touring arenas with him was a huge moment for them. Another huge moment; Elton John said Self Made Man was one of his favorite albums of the year when it came out.
Let’s see if he says the same about their new record, “Blood Harmony.” We think he may! Thanks to Larkin Poe for stopping by, and also for giving us the world debut of their new song! We can’t wait to see what’s in store for them, and also to see them again!
