Deb Talan Of The Weepies To Release Solo Album 'Lucky Girl' May 12

Deb Talan, one half of beloved folk/pop duo The Weepies, will release a new solo album called Lucky Girl on May 12th. Lucky Girl sees Deb taking the time to reclaim herself both personally and professionally after dedicating over a decade to a successful career with her husband and musical partner Steve Tannen, having three children, and most recently, beating Stage 3 breast cancer. Today, she shares a taste of the album with song “Growing Up,” a reflection on the emotional push and pull between parent and young child as time passes.

Lucky Girl was recorded in The Weepies home studio in Iowa City, with Deb playing every instrument herself.  The 12 gorgeous songs on the album showcase Deb’s undeniable pop sensibility, her signature confessional writing, and of course her unmistakable voice.

Deb has announced a 12-city U.S. tour in support of the upcoming release of Lucky Girl, which starts this Friday, March 31 in Iowa City, IA and ends on Sunday, May 14 (coincidentally and appropriately Mother’s Day) in Cambridge, MA, the same city where The Weepies were born as a result of Steve Tannen attending a Deb Talan concert all those years ago.
