Larkin Poe: Local Artist of the Week

“From the fingers to the frets,” Larkin Poe has delivered us a bonafide barnburner in “Holy Ghost Fire.” In fact, somehow I felt transported to church and to the set of a bank heist movie at the same time on first listen. There’s an unabashed energy in everything the Georgia transplants do that just feels good – but that energy comes with a rough rock and roll edge that makes me wish I had put on my leather jacket this morning.

The music video is a great juxtaposition to the song’s rough and tumble feel, featuring Megan and Rebecca jubilantly singing along. When a pandemic prevents you from hiring a cast of actors, you need to have a rock solid song to carry the video – and that’s exactly what Larkin Poe has in “Holy Ghost Fire.”

Aspiring guitarists looking to glean some slide wisdom from Megan can find a great mini-lesson posted just a few days ago to their Instagram. As artists around the world look to diversify their digital content, it seems like the tutorial format has a perfect home on the @larkinpoe feed. With any luck we’ll get a rig rundown on the pedalboard soon, because the tremolo on this track is to die for.
