The band first connected with Costello when they were known as The Lovell Sisters. Since then, they have acted as his backing band numerous times over the course of the last five years. When asked about touring with Costello once again, the ladies said: “We are so excited to be hitting the road with Elvis Costello this coming spring – in the USA and internationally! With our album, ‘Reskinned’, slated for a spring release, we can’t wait to get out and debut all our new songs for folks”.
Earlier this fall, the sisters opened as special guests on select dates for Conor Oberst on his US tour in addition to performing as his backing band. Prior to the tour, their latest single “Stubborn Love” premiered via NYLON. You can watch the music video now, here: http://nylon.cm/1Oz9iL9.
Larkin Poe is a sister duo comprised of Rebecca Lovell and Megan Lovell – descendants of tortured artist and creative genius, Edgar Allen Poe. At a young age, the girls were classically trained on violin and piano while being exposed to classic rock icons including Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd. Rebecca (lead singer) plays guitar, mandolin as well as violin and Megan (harmony vocals) contributes on slide guitar, lapsteel as well as dobro. After experimenting with an array of musical styles, they found a way to blend together a sound that channels their distinct voice.
The duo has previously hit the road as opening and backing bands for Conor Oberst, Kristian Bush (Sugarland) and Elvis Costello who praises that “they have a head start on the rest of us with the unique power and beauty of sibling harmony“. With years of domestic and international touring under their belts, and a large and loyal fan base already in place, the sisters want their fans to know that their new album ‘Reskinned’ is truly their coming of age project. The previous album ‘KIN’ was officially released on October 14th, 2014 via RH Music.
