Indie duo songwriting for the holidays
Songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen began writing together the first night they met, drinking a bottle of wine and trading an acoustic guitar back and forth in a tiny apartment. Soon the Weepies were born. Their music is accessible but deep, combining addictive pop melodies with sharp insights. Talan and Tannen married in 2007 and had a baby boy, Theo. Soon after that, Talan was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer, but they've bounced back with new music. It's been several years since we've seen them in Michigan, and they return to The Ark with new acoustic music for the holidays. Austin songwriter Matt the Electrician opens.
