The projects I’m involved in all leave room for people to put their personal touch on things. What I express might change depending on the project’s conditions and the song but the freedom of expression is always there. There’s a visceral connection to different dynamic/intensity levels that I enjoy.
I would tell myself to take it much more seriously and take it much less seriously also – if that makes any sense. No one is going to do anything for you better than you will do it for yourself, so take seeing ideas through and getting things done more seriously. But also keep it your mind that this is Rock n Roll we’re talking about here – if you aren’t having a good time, how is anyone else supposed to?
The evolution of Larkin Poe from 2010 to 2018 has been constant, radical, and breathtaking. It has taken us years of seeking to finally uncover the musical path upon which we currently tread. Music is a journey and it means different things to each and everyone one of us at the different stages of our lives. We’re hugely grateful to be where we are right now, making the music we’re making.
Well, we definitely aren’t your granddad’s bluegrass band, that’s for sure. We like to honor the tradition of bluegrass music while at the same time we attempt to create something new, often with a heavy emphasis on improvisation. Every show should be a separate experience from the last. We essentially are trying to write music that we’d like to listen to and dance to ourselves and each one of us comes from a very different background.
But if there was one thing I could go back and tell myself, it would be to just take things in stride and not let myself get too worked up about things that can happen to you in this ever-changing thing they call the music business. I’ve been lucky to have a lot of guidance along the way so far. But I’ve also had to make some pretty big decisions on my own, some for better, some for worse. But it’s definitely a learning experience.
We were putting in the work and realized that you don’t become a rock star until you are too tired to enjoy it. Keeping our heads down and eye on the prize. That is how we did it. We always say that rule number is to have fun while you’re doing it.
