Singer-songwriters Deb Talan & Steve Tannen began writing together the night they met, and soon formed American indie band The Weepies.
On the strength of their distinctive songwriting and harmonies, The Weepies quietly sold more than a million records, with over 30 million views on YouTube and 100 million streams on Spotify. They married and had three children, rarely touring but continuing to release music, making 7 records over 10 years.
When their youngest son was 17 months old, Deb Talan was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer. She was in chemo almost immediately. Deb beat cancer, and The Weepies released an intense new record, SIRENS. Coming back from the edge sharpened their focus; at 16 songs and almost an hour long, it quickly became one of the best received albums of their career.
The Weepies are currently recording and on tour.
