Deb Talan and The Weepies

Deb Talan is one of my dearest friends. Since I was a fan of her music before we met, there is still a part of me that gets all goobery and starry eyed by her talent, her beauty and her deep creativity. If you haven’t heard Deb’s music or The Weepies yet you are in for a treat.

We met in a serendipitous way, which is how all of the best things in my life unfold. Years ago, Matt and I were searching for a summer subletter and a friend pointed us to a wonderful musician who needed a place to live for several months. One day he heard me playing the Weepies and ran into my room excitedly, “You’re a fan of the Weepies?” When I told him how much I loved them, he smiled and said that he was a friend of theirs and often plays with them. We hatched a plan for them to do a house concert at our place a few months later.

It was like a dream come true. I remember a moment so vividly when I was stirring a big pot of pasta on the stove and Deb and Steve were doing soundcheck in the living room. I grinned so wide, taking in the music and thought, My favorite band in the whole world is playing in my living room right now. How did I get so lucky? My heart was so full.

And really, you guys know this because you are Weepies fans. Even when they are playing on your stereo in your living room, you get that full-hearted warm feeling, right? They just do that to you.

Their new album was just released, Hideaway, and I think it’s the best one yet. A friend of mine put it well when she said, How did they know they were making an entire album just for me?
