To mark the 10th year anniversary of their first entrance onto the Billboard Charts - 2008’s “Hideaway” - The Weepies are headlining 22 shows across the US with their band.

Singer-songwriters Deb Talan & Steve Tannen began writing together the night they met, and soon formed folk-pop duo The Weepies. They married and had three children, rarely touring but continuing to release music, making 7 records over 10 years. They quietly sold more than a million records, with YouTube views of 30 million, and Spotify streams of over 90 million.

“We never got to tour behind the original Hideaway record,” says Steve. “For the stars to align 10 years later feels magical.”

“It’s unusual to get a second chance to do something like this, so we’re taking the band and going all out,” says Deb. The tour kicks off in the Weepies’ adopted hometown of Iowa City, finishing 6 weeks later outside of Seattle.

Born in Australia, raised in Toronto and New York, briefly a resident in Colorado, Ohio, and North Carolina, Greg Tannen is the son of an amateur jazz pianist and the grandson of a magician. Now a NYC-based singer/songwriter, he is a regular at places like the legendary Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, and the Living Room.

Besides a flood of wins in international songwriting competitions (John Lennon, UNISONG, USA, ISC), and in festivals (Sierra Songwriters, Telluride, Rocky Mountain Folks), Greg’s music can be heard on national TV, on national radio, and in award-winning films. He has also co-written songs with artists such as The Weepies, Amanda Brown, and Amanda Brecker.

His first three albums were chosen as one of the "Top 12 Independent Albums" of the year by Performing Songwriter magazine. His fourth album, “Maybe The Sun”, is out now.

Greg tours across the US and the world either solo or with his band.
