CSP #13: Interview with Lucky Girl Deb Talan of the Weepies

Make music with the love of your life. (The Weepies) Sell a million records. Tour the world. Have 3 kids. Get Stage 3 breast cancer. Survive. Now what?

“I had to make this record, for me,” says Deb Talan, best known as the girl from the folk pop duo The Weepies. “Marriage, children, being in a band – if you do any of that, at some point you start to wonder what part is still you. And then I got cancer, with a brutal treatment and surgery, and then full recovery. And as lucky as I am with all of that, I just felt lost. This project has been a way to reclaim a part of myself.”

The 13 gorgeous songs that make up Deb Talan’s new record LUCKY GIRL, released this year on Nettwerk Records, are an exploration featuring Deb’s pop sensibility, her signature confessional writing, and of course her unmistakable voice.
