Last year saw Larkin Poe ascended to #1 on an array of Billboard charts with their widely acclaimed fifth studio album, SELF MADE MAN, available now via the band’s own Tricki-Woo Records. While a normal year might’ve seen Larkin Poe hitting the road, the Lovells instead found themselves at home, performing a number of “Home Sweet Home” livestream concerts and adding to their much-loved YouTube covers series. Inspired, Larkin Poe released their second full-length of 2020, KINDRED SPIRITS, a self-produced collection of stripped-back covers both classic and new, including songs by the Allman Brothers Band, Robert Johnson, Elton John, Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne, and more. Building further off the strength of their popular YouTube presence, the band has now started LPTV, a livestreaming and video-on-demand platform. LPTV is a subscription service that offers multiple channels providing exclusive concerts and other original content.
