The tour represents the first opportunity for UK and European fans to see Larkin Poe headline shows in support of the ‘Blood Harmony’ album. The record affirms the duo as an essential force in shaping the identity of Southern rock ‘n’ roll, breathing new energy into the genre with both a forward-thinking perspective and a decidedly feminine strength.
Larkin Poe co-produced the new album alongside Tyler Bryant (Rebecca’s husband). With Megan handling harmony vocals, lap steel, and resonator guitar and Rebecca on guitar and keys, they also enlisted members of their long-term live band, including drummer Kevin McGowan and bassist Tarka Layman. Primarily recorded at Rebecca and Tyler’s home studio, the result is an electrifying new work that fully harnesses the fiery vitality they’ve shown in touring across the globe, imbuing their songs with equal parts soulful sensitivity and thrilling ferocity. From the feverish guitar work of ‘Bad Spell’ to the soul-stirring ‘Southern Comfort’ and the smouldering title track, ‘Blood Harmony’ reveals a band in complete touch with their formidable intuition, their storytelling fortified with a blues-heavy sound that hits right in the heart.
