Kendall Elise is an intriguing storyteller. Her songs speak of dark humour and personal experiences; her sound takes inspiration from rhythm and blues, folk and  country, and everything in between. With a hint of yesteryear, trademark quirky touches and flawless vocal delivery she has been turning heads since the release of her EP in 2017, I Didn't Stand a Chance. Fresh from touring with Kiwi born, LA based Gin Wigmore, Kendall Elise is preparing to release her debut album.

Original Press Release:

Rebecca and Megan Lovell, the multi-instrumentalist sister duo are descendants of tortured artist and creative genius Edgar Alan Poe and ‘Larkin Poe’ was the name of the sisters’ great-great-great grandfather.

The Lovell sisters are known for blending Haim-esque vocals with guitar riffs and their viral videos, now over 500k views, of their skilled covers of Robert Johnson, The Allman Brothers, Blind Willie Johnson and Chuck Berry amongst many others have added to their notoriety. As a result they have played backing musician slots for artists such as Elvis Costello, Don Henley, Jackson Browne and Conor Oberst. As Larkin Poe they have performed at the 2014 and 2016 Glastonbury Festival, Bonaroo, and Lollapalooza.

Originally from Atlanta, the now Nashville based sister duo are poised to make a mark all their own with the release of their fourth album Venom & Faith was released on Friday November 9, 2018. According to Rebecca Lovell “I t’s a celebration of American roots music as translated by two sisters who are playing the blues in a modern age”. Rebecca, whose powerhouse vocals pair perfectly with sister Megan’s slinky lap steel to create an outlaw sound entirely unique to the two.

The new album Venom & Faith only includes two covers— Sometimes by Bessie Jones and Hard Time Killing Floor Blues by Skip James. Otherwise it is all original material from the Lovell sisters. Two singles, the no-nonsense Bleach Blonde Bottle Blues and the hip-hop-influenced Ain’t Gonna Cry are below for you to check out!

Creating their own brand of Roots Rock ‘n’ Roll: gritty, soulful, and flavoured by their southern heritage, Larkin Poe are on the rise and rise.
