The Weepies


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.
Curtis Eller's American Circus
Curtis Eller's American Circus


Curtis Eller is a banjo player, songwriter and rock & roll singer. A twenty-year show business veteran, Eller and his band The American Circus have developed a devoted international following based on dynamic, highly physical stage performances and an extensive catalog of curious phonographic recordings. The iconoclastic musician has spent more than a decade relentlessly touring the club, theatre and festival stages of a dozen countries in North America and Europe. Eller is a gifted and prolific songwriter who's banjo-driven songs describe a dreamlike vision of American history where all points in time have collapsed into one. Past recordings have seen a ghastly parade of historical luminaries, from Abraham Lincoln and Buster Keaton to Amelia Earhart and Joe Louis, sharing the spotlight with a host of Civil War generals and corrupt 19th century politicians. The American Circus is diligently at work on a new full-length album on which they have augmented their indelicate, rock & roll rhythms with a tempestuous cloud of horns and an graceless choir of backsliders in their quest to bring Eller's historically evocative compositions to vivid, cinematic life.
