We are thrilled to announce that Larkin Poe's cover of the song "Black Betty" is featured in our short film Scratch. The band is on a roll with their latest album Venom & Faith and their current world tour to support it. The first known recording of the song is a part of the Library of Congress and also appears in the film's soundtrack. Larkin Poe's cover recurs the song in stunning fashion in the film's final moments.

"The second I heard Larkin Poe's brilliant cover, with its incredible energy, I knew it was exactly the tone we needed to close out the film."
