Blood Harmony also includes such recent singles as “Georgia Off My Mind,” “Bad Spell” and the smoldering title track, “Blood Harmony,” all available now at all DSPs and streaming services. A heavy-hearted yet swinging lament for what we leave behind in chasing our dreams, “Georgia Off My Mind” is joined by an official music video streaming now at YouTube. “‘Georgia Off My Mind’ flips the script on popular jazz standard ‘Georgia On My Mind,’” wrote Guitar World, “and swaps smooth sounds for gritty electric guitar action that marries drop-tuned rumbles, swinging blues riffs and upper register licks into one tremolo-tinged main hook.” “It is refreshing to see these two women throwing out any rule books to how they should be perceived,” enthused American Blues Scene. “In fact, they aren’t just breaking the rules, they are making up their own.

“Blood Harmony” is joined by an official music video streaming now at YouTube following its exclusive premiere via Guitar World, which declared the track, “Soulful…It builds and builds. It assembles itself with acoustic, lap steel and electric guitar parking a relaxed southern rock vibe over a kick. It speaks of music running in the family.

“Bad Spell” – which Rebecca Lovell describes as “a female response” to Screamin’ Jay Hawkins’ classic “I Put a Spell on You” – arrived this spring alongside an official music video streaming now via YouTube. The track was met by critical applause around the world, with Americana-UK hailing its “leather jacket swagger,” adding, “This fierce blues rock barnburner from Larkin Poe conjures arena strutting 70’s rockers and the first wave of British blues in the 60’s.” “Rebecca delivers some monumental riffage on the tune,” wrote Guitar World, “with her sister Megan adding some singeing lap steel statements to the picture.

Blood Harmony affirms Larkin Poe as an essential force in shaping the identity of Southern rock ‘n’ roll, breathing new energy into the genre with both forward-thinking perspective and a decidedly feminine strength. In a departure from the self-contained approach of past albums like 2020’s Self Made Man – praised by American Songwriter as “pumped up for arena-sized consumption without compromising any of its stripped-down command and intensity” – Larkin Poe co-produced the new album alongside Texas-bred musician Tyler Bryant (also Rebecca’s husband). With Megan handling harmony vocals, lap steel, and resonator guitar and Rebecca on guitar and keys, Larkin Poe also enlisted members of their longtime live band, including drummer Kevin McGowan and bassist Tarka Layman. Mainly 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 smoldering 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.  


When steering by your own stars, you never quite know where you’re going to wind up,” says Larkin Poe. “Our true north is unique to us, and in following our true north without compromise, we have been out freewheeling this world on the ride of our lives. And it still feels like just the beginning. Blood Harmony is a creative step we are proud to have taken together as sisters. We grew these songs in a sweet part of our hearts and we hope they bring beauty.
