Deb Talan and The Weepies

A few years ago in a lonely hotel room, I heard Deb Talan’s incredible song ‘Forgiven’ tucked into the credits for Lovely and Amazing. A good search later, a copy of her debut album was winging its way to me from CD Baby in Boston, and I’ve been a huge fan ever since.

Since that first album, Something Burning, I’ve been following Talan’s steady rise. I’m even a member of her fan club, the only one I’ve ever joined.

Soon after I made her a fan more famous, Deb Talan teamed up with the equally fantastic Steve Tannen, and they’ve formed The Weepies, whose second album ‘Say I Am You’ is the most delicate, neuron-firing folk-with-guitar exploration of happiness and its trickery since the Indigo Girls’ ‘All that we let in’, my favourite album for three years straight.
