American roots rock band, Larkin Poe were recently part of the massive line-up for Bluesfest 2023, the 5-day festival which included a range of incredible country, blues, rock and folk artists, such as Bonnie Raitt, Mavis Staples, Lucinda Williams, Jackson Browne, Gang Of Youths, Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit and more!

Additionally, the sister duo also played three headline shows as part of their ‘Blood Harmony’ tour in Sydney and two sold out in Melbourne between April 9-11.

Inspired by music of the 60s and 70s, including the likes of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and The Allman Brothers Band, Larkin Poe, comprised of sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell, also pay homage to some of the greatest turn-of-the-century blues artists, with Son House, Skip James and Muddy Waters amongst the heady mix that collide into Larkin Poe’s trademark sound.

Boasting a horde of high-profile admirers for their unforgettable live performances, including Bob Seger and Russell Crowe, Larkin Poe have also previously toured as backing artists for an array of industry icons, including Elvis Costello and Keith Urban. Continuing to thrive under their Larkin Poe project moniker as the world has emerged out of the pandemic lockdown years, the duo closed out 2020 with two albums, Self Made Man and Kindred Spirits, before diving into creating the painstakingly crafted Blood Harmony.
