Since they met in a Cambridge folk club 9 years ago, The Weepies have progressed from an indie duo playing house concerts, to ranks on the Billboard Charts. Though they now have sales in the hundreds of thousands, the Weepies have kept a surprisingly low profile; they haven't toured at all since 2006.
"Our son was born right as we finished HIDEAWAY," (Nettwerk, 2008) says Steve Tannen. "Touring was out. It was a huge change from the 180 shows of the SAY I AM YOU release (Nettwerk, 2006)." The band was kept in the spotlight by dozens of uses in TV shows and films, including a prominent campaign ad for Barack Obama.
"It was pretty surreal to stay at home while the music went out into the world," adds Deb Talan. "But staying at home got us back into writing that much more quickly."
Crystallizing their organic acoustic sound and pop harmonies, the California duo has come up with their deepest, most accessible record yet. Third in a trilogy for Nettwerk Records, The Weepies once again worked with drummer Frank Lenz, guitarist Meg Toohey and string player Oliver Kraus, adding bass legends Tony Levin and Larry Klein to the mix.
"This is the most fun we've had making a record," says Deb. "We took as much time as we needed at every step, and taking that pressure off made the whole thing a little lighter."
"It took a year," adds Steve. "We wrote something like 70 tunes, and were able to experiment quite a bit before these 14 songs emerged as the record."
That process has paid off artistically with this wonderful new collection. BE MY THRILL is a showcase for the duo's powerhouse songwriting and unique harmonies, ranging from the Cole-Porter-Esque "They're in Love" to the Dusty Springfield-like "When You Go Away."
SWEET TALK RADIO was born out of a conversation. They were two solo acts
who came together by way of vocal harmonies and then, a kiss. The kiss that changed
everything, started a relationship and ultimately led to getting married, and having a
son. Along the way they released two albums, ve singles, had numerous song
placements in tv shows, performed at various festivals, signed with Secret Road,
scored an independent lm, and composed music for a daytime talk show.
With "HOROLOGY", Sweet Talk Radio are set to release their 3rd album.
Produced by Bill Leer (Ingrid Michaelson, Cary Brothers, Joshua Radin), the initial
recording began just before Kate's father passed away. He was an horologist, who for
many years, had a clock shop in North Hollywood. As Kate and Tim got back to the
recording process, they realized time was a consistent theme throughout the album.
"When we became parents, time turned into gold and dust simultaneously", Kate says.
Horology is the art and science of measuring time, and in their attempt to document
this particular moment, they even included the sound of some vintage clocks and
chimes from her father's shop.
