The Weepies

Steve, Deb, Malcolm, Canon 300D

Imagine your favorite singer songwriter. Imagine listening to them over and over again on your CD player. Imagine singing along to them {inexpertly} and wishing that for just one day you could have that voice. Imagine that the next best thing to being them, would be to have them in your home singing to you and all of your friends. And wouldn’t it be great to have them for your husband’s birthday celebration? Imagine that…

Well folks, that happened to me last night. The Weepies played in my living room.

The Weepies are Deb Talan & Steve Tannen and if you give a little listen I think you will crush out on them as hard as I did. (Pictured above, you will see our amazing roommate and old friend of the Weepies, Malcolm Gold who accompanied them on bass.)

Happy Birthday Matt! and thank you Steve, Deb and Malcolm. Life doesn’t get much better than this…

P.S. We are already looking forward to continuing the house concert tradition by having our dear friend Martine Locke perform this fall. She is another artist that will blow you away with her talent. (If you are in the Bay Area and would like to be invited to this show, let me know!)

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    We just had our first house concert almost 3 months ago for one of our favorite bands “Girlyman” (check out They were phenomenal and it is an amazing way to see live music. Not to mention that they were at my fave folk festival that I attend every year ( and we were all proud of their mainstage performance…like new parents or something.
    Wow, that’s a lot on house concerts, but I’m glad yours went so well…more people need to have them and support those awesome indy artists that need audiences as much as the Britney Spears’s of the world.

    If I lived in the Bay Area I definitely would love to make it. Seeing that I’m on the other side of the country – I guess I can’t. Thank you so much for the invite. Sounds like a rockin’ good time. I ‘m glad such a wonderful dream came true!!! It would be fun to meet you and hang out with you!!

  10. Kate

    SO strange that you should write about them because…
    i read your entry and then was browsing the upcoming events at my favorite folk-rock club in boston (club passim) and who is playing there next month but the weepies! (who, incidentally, i had never heard of before this). very interesting!

  12. mati

  13. Julia

    The concert in your home sounds fabulous! I love the idea of you continuing the idea. Martine is wonderful, I wish I was able to attend such a cool event. You are so lucky, (and well connected too…) to get such talented people to come and play at your home. The night sounds like it was awesome. Oh….happy birthday to Matt! 🙂

  14. The Other Brian

    Oh my goodness! I think I am in love! I am SO ordering this CD right now.
    Thank you for introducing them. 🙂

  15. Jennifer

    I live in Florida and hope that I can figure out a way to order a Weepies CD! The music sounded wonderful!

  16. jill

    Yes, totally crushing… I have a cousin who told me about them awhile back and I never got around to listening, and now just like you said, I am crushing hard! Just my type of sound! Thanks for sharing…
    What a neat experience and Happy Birthday to Matt!
