With its playfully pointed gender twist, latest single She's A Self Made Man
both gives the album its title and serves as an anthem for the multi-instrumentalist sister duo, comprised of the Atlanta-bred, Nashville-based Rebecca and Megan Lovell.
"Life is all about balance," says Rebecca. "Sometimes it's sweet, sometimes it's sour.
"With 'She's A Self Made Man,' I wanted to write a song about the up-and-down ride that Megan and I have been on for the past ten years of building Larkin Poe.
"It's hard to know who you are and it can take time to figure out what your purpose is, but I feel thankful that in recent years, my own feelings have started to click and make sense. Knowing and accepting yourself: that is empowerment."
Like its predecessor, the album is self-produced by Larkin Poe with "our good buddy and engineer" Roger Alan Nichols at his studio, Bell Tone Recording, in Nashville.
Working in an industry with too few female producers, the Lovells chose to implement their independent spirit throughout their whole operation, further showcasing their grit, moxie, and determination.
"Taking the creative reins and producing the last three records ourselves has been a formative experience for us, as sisters and as artists; it has been essential in the development of our own artistic voice," says Rebecca.
"It has brought us even closer together as a team and has done wonders in crystallizing and distilling the vision that my sister and I share."
"Being authentic is very important to us," Megan continues.
"Rebecca and I are heavily involved with every decision that is made. We're independent artists and it filters into everything that we do."
Self Made Man sees Rebecca and Megan pushing their music and message towards unexplored terrain, inspired by their world travels yet still powerfully rooted in the creative heritage of their beloved American South.
The album is ambitious in both its eclectic, energetic sound and its resolutely welcoming mission; a universal lyrical approach fueled by tradition and invention, as well as Larkin Poe's remarkable ability to touch the hearts and souls of their fellow humans worldwide.
