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”.
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.
